"Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live in every experience, painful or joyous, to live in gratitude for every moment , to live abundantly." -dorothy thompson.
I wanted to share with you an army wife that I have great respect for her writing skills and her courage. Her name is Lily Burana. In her recent book, "I love a man in uniform" she honestly describes her relationship from the beginning when it's fresh and new to the hard times after september 11. She truly is a marvelous, modern day woman. I am certain, Martha Washington would be proud of her. After reading her book, which everyone should, I decided to see if she had a blog. It turns out she does. I found this article she wrote for the new york times back on veteran's day 2010. I love the way she shares the emotion of watching a war film with her husband. She describes how very different the emotional state of army husband and army wife is through the film. Please take a look here. If you aren't truly moved by her writing, I don't know what will get you then! She is fantastic!
She also has a course on Burlesque dancing with a boa and satin gloves exclusively for army wives. It would be fun if she could do a tour of that! HOW FUN! Thanks Lily for what you do! You may have only received a plastic letter when your husband retired, but what you do trickles down to all of army wives. Thank you.
