The Amazing Women Who Stay Behind

I have met some incredible people through this amazing online world. Some are elected officials and some work for them. Some are pundits that appear on television or radio. Some are members of the military and some are their family members. Some are bloggers and some are blog readers. Some I have met in person and some I feel like I have known forever even though we have never met face to face. If I ever tried to write about all those I have met over the past three years through blogging and what I have learned from them I am sure I would never be able to name them all or sufficiently express what an impact they have had on my life.

One of those people who has impressed and inspired me as much as anyone is Laura Lee Donoho who blogs at The Wide Awake Cafe. I have gotten to know her through her writing and through the emails we exchange. She impresses the heck out of me, but after reading her most recent post I am in absolute awe of her. As I read it, a post about what military wives go through when their husbands are deployed and how best to support them, I remembered that as incredible as Laura is, she is only one of the truly amazing women who hold their families together and at the same time support their husbands in their military careers, often enduring multiple moves and deployments. Please go read her post and be sure to check out the comments section, where a famous Laura stopped by to comment on a quote of hers in the post.
