An Extremely Funny Read

If you haven't figured it out yet I just LOVE to read almost anything I can get my hands around! I just finished another new book that was recommended called Confessions of a Military Wife by Mollie Gross. It is based on her point of view during her years as a Marine wife.I had to ask a few questions from friends who are Marine to understand a couple things she was talking about in her book. But over all it was hysterical !! There are a few moments that if you've gone through a deployment you get a little teary, but she really tried to keep it fun & light hearted.
Her sense of humor just cracked me up through out the entire book. She goes on about the bonds formed with your husband during deployment times as well as your new "wife" you a acquire & no she is not talking about a same sex marriage. Everyone usually finds at least one Battle Buddy who ends up knowing more about you then your husband for a year. She makes you realize you are perfectly normal to have all those feelings of Grief when they first deploy & anxious moments upon their arrival home. I would recommend it to any Military spouse to read for a good laugh. Who doesn't need a pick me up every  now & then with all these multiple deployments.
I finished it in one day! Her husband is now out of the Marines & she does stand up comedy on military bases around the globe. I watched a few Youtube clips & she really is a HOOT!! I think I'll recommend her to our Senior Advisor while the guys are gone. They always try to put on a halfway party to lift our spirits- guess what she talks about that too!!! Go pick up her book & read it today then pass it around you'll LOVE IT!!
