This is the only perfection there is, the perfection of helping others.
- Andre Agassi
Those of us who have had a loved one in the military tend to look at life a wee bit differently than the rest of the world. Today I thought I’d share a glimpse at that perspective with a (tongue-in-cheek) list for those who love a soldier, either as a spouse, parent, child or sibling.
And a bonus...
These are the things that made my list. How about your list? What things would you like to add? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

Her oldest son went from high school graduation, to Marine Corp boot camp, to Iraq; where he served two tours fighting on the front lines as an infantry Marine. Fighting Fear: Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle, is Edie’s first book for those with a loved one who serves. Look for her newest book for military families debuting summer of 2015: While My Soldier Serves: Prayers for Those with a Loved One in the Military.
