I’ve been struggling with if I should publish this post because I’ve felt like it’s not quiet my place … yet. I am a new LEO wife – I am new to this particular life for 2 reasons: one being that I am new in this “wife” role and two because my husband is still in his first year of the job. But then I came across this post & I realized, that it is my life whether I am new to it or not and that I have the right to feel the ways that I do.
Life Lessons I’ve Learned By Being A Police Wife | Modern Melly
So, thank you Melly because you are right!! I am a new Blue Family Member – but a family member nonetheless. And even though I am a “newbie,” I have to embrace this life and love this life because this is MY life now. Being a LEO wife is:
but most of all … Rewarding.
Rewarding to see the smile on my husbands’ face, every time he puts that badge on; or the excitement in his voice, when he talks about what happened on his night shift. And, the happiness on his face when someone thanks him for his service.
So no matter how terrified I feel (all the time) … seeing those things makes the lonely nights, missed conversations, and kisses between shifts all worth it. I am apart of something bigger – a family that reaches across the world and I find comfort in knowing that I have people out there that feel the same things that I do.
