Day Three Hundred Ten.
Some days I wonder why I am even a part of my FRG. I am one of those lucky ladies that lucked out with one that lacks in the communication department, has few meet ups (like the two since the guys deployed), lots of drama and leadership like duck, duck, goose. I wont even give examples of how lame the FRG has been although I will say that no matter how much I do want to step down sometimes from my role in the group I always continue to push myself to stick it out to support my husband. I volunteer and donate a lot of my time (and like today money) whenever I get the chance if I know it will better the soldiers, company and/or families. Usually I am paid off with a little thank you or in my lucky times a certificate my husband likes to laugh at. However, times like the one this evening make me feel the most rewarded. After our battalion picnic one of the wives asked me for a call list leading into a conversation about flights and homecoming dates. I really had no information to give her but at the end she said, "You're awesome I asked a couple wives but no one ever gets back to me so I was like I will just ask Mrs. ***** she always gets back to me." When I thanked her and told her I knew how frustrating it can be sometimes she just simply told me, "You rock." I haven't heard that phrase in a long time but I will take it since I know I can be pretty awesome some days haha. ;)
