From a spouse’s perspective
Crystal of Crystal's Treasures
One of the hardest things to do is say goodbye to your spouse never knowing if they are coming back, and having to see the heartbreak on your children’s faces as the spouse walks out the door.
I become a single parent each time my spouse deploys. The kids in school and their sports practices, working a regular job, and crafting all take time. Then there is the home life of cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, clothes and necessity shopping, etc. Sometimes it’s so hard, but then you get to talk to your spouse by phone, or Skype, and it all just washes away. Nothing I have to do can be harder than what my spouse does.
Our spouses work every day to give us our freedom, and for that, I thank each and every spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, etc. One of the hardest jobs is to be a military wife, and we are STRONG!
Making jewelry for me has been a large outlet of energy for me. I love it, and it’s not considered a job to me, but a vision of fun. I love creating!
