MilSpouses Rock! Blog Carnival Day 8: Where I Find My Strength

This is the final day of the blog carnival and today we are talking about where I find my strength. I often overlook that I am a strong woman. As a teenager I lived in a verbally abusive home that has greatly affected my own sense of self. But I do not that I find strength in three different sources.
My first source of strength is God.
By far, the main reason I am a strong woman is because of God. He has blessed me in so many ways and he helps me keep a positive attitude, even in negative circumstances. Through him I really can do whatever I set my mind to.
My second source of strength is my wonderful husband.
He is the reason I do what I do. It is our love for each other that is the reason I am an Army Wife. We are in this life together and we support each other. We keep each other accountable and help each other grow in the Lord.
And last but not least...
My third source of strength is other military wives.
It is wonderful to know that I am not alone. There are thousands of other wives out there going through the same things. We are each unique but there is a bond that can bring us all together. We can support and reach out to each other from across the country and across the world without ever having to meet in person. Thank you ladies for not letting me be alone.
And this, this is where I find my strength.
