The Love Letter Campaign: The Cost of Love
My husband tells me lots of times that he loves me. His actions I have questioned, the bottom line is he does love me. I think that for some veterans who have made it home to there loves one its hard to say that. They don't tell them that they love them enough. It must be hard to see and do what they have done.
Love is a heart felt thing for some, but for me its more than a heart felt. Its takes love to live with a veteran and there memories. Love to reassure them that you will be there for them any time they need you. In hard and easy times. The hard times is the hardest for some and yes even me. No my husband is not a veteran, my dad is and my brother. I love them both very much.
This blog post is part of The Love Letter Campaign... a project started by FamilyOfaVet.com to encourage those who love a hero to write a letter sharing their story (where they started, what they've faced together, and why their love endures). It's not just for spouses, but also for parents, siblings, caregivers, and friends. It's about telling the "rest" of our stories... stories that continue despite PTSD, TBI, and the challenges of life after combat.
