I Say Yes On Being A Military Spouse

Sometimes I'm asked how I handle being a military spouse.

"Isn't your husband gone all the time? How do you deal?" a friend once said to me.

I shrugged. "I'm proud to be married to someone who defends his country. I'd always say yes to being a military spouse."




I won't lie. It can be a difficult life. There are surprise deployments. There are times when he can't be with the family because he gets called into work. It makes it hard to schedule family vacations.

But I have someone that a lot of people don't: I have someone who would selflessly defend his country. I have someone who goes into harm's way to ensure his family stays safe.

I have someone to be proud of.



When it does get tough--and it will, it always does--I grab a delicious can of Well Yes!® soup and relax. I find taking a breather with delicious food helps. Plus, with the tagline A Soup in the Right Direction®, I know I'm making the right choice.  There's nothing better than a bowl of warm soup.






You can always find a fabulous flavor with Well Yes! soups. Each can is two servings each, so you can have one with a friend or family member if you need to vent. 





I love that they are crafted with care. 

I love that they contain purposeful ingredients that do not contain artificial flavors or colors. 






I love that they are made with non-gmo ingredients and contain non-bpa lining.

If I'm ever having a rough day, Well Yes! soups help take the edge off and remind me why I said yes to being a military spouse to begin with. I remember that even though there are many goodbyes, I get the hellos. I get to experience butterflies, the same ones I felt when my husband and I first started to date when he returns from a deployment.

  4. My moment of YES came after a doctor's appointment. There was a sudden realization I am getting older and I need to take better care of myself followed by a "YES" I can do this!

  9. Even though my spouse isn't in the armed services, I am still proud of him. I honestly don't know if I could be in your position, I give families SO much credit to be able to endure this sacrifice and dedication.☺

  10. My husband isn't in the military, but he does work in law enforcement. There are so many days that I worry myself into a fit and then I have to remind myself to take a breather. He's putting his safety on the line to make our community a safer place and I admire him more than I'll be able to express in words for that. Will definitely have to try some of the Well Yes! soups, especially now that soup season is here.

  21. YOU I give SO MUCH credit to. When my husband isn't home I tend to get a little anxiety and always tend to think the worst as well. I just love him so much, and I always want to be with him, ha! Don't confused me for a dependent person though, because I am very very much an independent girl, which is why it's funny I actually found a man I 10000% tolerate all the time! You are such a strong woman, and I commend you!

  22. I'll bet that's so hard, but I'm so grateful for everything your husband does, and for everything YOU do as well. I think people forget that military spouses, especially the good and loyal ones, are helping this country too. They're supporting those who need it to go out and protect us. Much love to you and yours!

  27. It must be so hard, I know I wouldn't be able to cope wiht my husband being gone for so long! I can imagine that you are bursting with pride though and I take my hat off to all families with military relatives, pretty amazinf sacrifice.

  28. I have a friend who's sister just married a man in the military. It sure changed up everything for her and her family but all of them were ok with it because of what he does for his country.

    ReplyDelete
  29. First of all, he truly is an amazing man and I am very happy for the two of you. Secondly, I really need to eat some chicken noodle soup now.

  30. Being a military spouse can be challenging.But you have things to be proud as someone serving the country.This soup sounds delicious!

  31. I admire your strength. Other women would not even measure up to a tenth of what you go through everyday as a military spouse. To be married to someone who puts his safety last, who lives to defend the country, is such an honor.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Being a military spouse definitely takes the right people. You have to be strong on your own for when they are gone. It's always great when they return though!

  35. A military spouse deserves credit too because you are making sacrifices along with the one in the military. The Well Yes! soups I have never heard of but I love the name. A hot bowl of soup can be very relaxing as well as comforting. Thanks for sharing your story and the soup.
