So I did wake up today, with a scheduled post. It was planned, ready, scheduled, then something happened on twitter.
I do not know if you have seen the Chevy commercial with the Military men and women coming home to their children? Well, if you haven’t and are looking for a cute video to tug at some heart strings you can find it over here.
Needless to say, it made me cry when I saw it this morning for the first time. I tweeted out to Chevrolet about how touching I found it, and how I as a military spouse appreciated it.
Then I got a few horrifying tweets from a person. I know the internet is full of people hiding behind their keyboard, I know people have terrible things to say, but I have never been the point of someone going to the length this person did.
It was two tweets, one about corporate America being terrible and supporting those who are invading “our innocent country”. ( PS. the person had such a fake profile I have no idea what this was referencing until the next tweet)
Then another tweet that had horrid pictures that should not even be on the internet.
I could not have hit block fast enough, and I really wanted to figure out how to report the tweet with the graphic picture but once you hit block it all disappeared.
4 years ago if you would have told me I would end up married to a man enlisted in the US Military? I would have laughed in your face. For real. I never thought I was strong enough to “do” what it is military spouses do. I know friends who text me when their significant others are gone a weekend feeling like it is the most awful thing, and asking me how I do it. Now that my husband is home, we see each other a few hours a day if we are lucky.We spent about 6 months together between deployments, and I am ready to cross my fingers I get my husband a whole year to myself without another. The last 4 years I have likely only spent a year or so fully together, wow. Adding it up is kind of sad!! Moving on.
I will not talk politics on the blog, but this really shouldn’t have anything to do with the soldiers/ supporting the troops. Support the troops who have joined to change their lives, get an education, start a family, serve their country, and all the other reasons people join the military. I am a little shaken up about this mornings tweets and just wanted to write it out. So thanks for tuning in <3
