When Art was recalled to active duty, both in 2001 and again in 2004, there were large chunks of time when I felt like a single mom. We had two young children. The Air Force base where Art was stationed was only about 40 minutes away, but he went on a lot of deployments. Honestly, even when he was home he was so tired that he really couldn’t be much help.
I think it was during that time that I sort of lost myself. My whole life was wrapped up in taking care of the house, kids and pets (not to mention church). I never took time for me. My physical, mental and spiritual well-being all suffered. I wish the Military Spouse Wellness Summit had been around back then.
