We all know that the pilot wife life at its worst can be chaos, but at its best it’s…
Eh, who am I kidding? At its best it’s still chaos! Sometimes it’s good chaos and sometimes… well, let’s just go with not so good. But it’s our chaos and we own it, rise above it, and figure out a way to love it. Because that’s who we are!
Then at the end of the day we pop the cork and make a much deserved toast to us —the strong, the insane, the Pilot Wives!
Because let’s face it, if we don’t learn to laugh about it, then we’ll cry instead.
So just for a little light-hearted fun, here are eleven things that always happen when he’s gone:
3. Every activity that your family participates in has a ‘mandatory’ event. On the very same day. At the very same time. Now all you have to do is figure out how to be in four places at once. You’ve got this!
9. A stray _____ shows up on your porch and you just can’t say no because it’s really cute and lonely (just like you). And let’s face it, he’s your ‘no’ person and when he’s gone you’re too tired to fight the good fight. And of course eventually this leads right back to number six.
Ladies, you are beautiful, amazing, cherished, and fiercely loved! I know some days this life feels wildly out of control…but I promise, you’ve got this!
Laugh, live, and love one another fiercely.
