My husband is actively serving as a Chief in the Navy, my step-dad retired as a Chief in the Navy, and we have several friends and family members who have served or are currently active. Because I am around them day after day, I sometimes forget that they are true heroes. The things these men and women do astonish me. Several of my friends have fought in Iraq, several of my family members were in Vietnam and the Gulf War, and my husband actually helped in the attempts to stop the Somali pirates. The time away from their homes and family leaves them with heavy hearts while they are off protecting our freedom and it often goes unnoticed.
Being a military spouse is almost as hard as actually being in the military. Your significant other is off being brave and selfless while you are at home worrying and trying to handle your responsibilities as well as theirs. The time that I have with the heroes in my life is precious. Something as simple as having a cup of coffee with my husband are moments I cherish.
I love that Nestle Coffee-Mate has partnered with Operation Homefront and just released limited edition coffee creamers. They have decorated their French Vanilla & Hazelnut liquid creamer bottles and their Original powder creamer in patriotic stars and stripes that will only be available at Walmart from Memorial Day through Independence Day.
It is hard to imagine what must be going through these heroes minds when they are away but I want them to know that they are appreciated. I am glad to be saluting the heroes in my life and those that I don’t know personally.
Riase your cups! Go to Walmart and pick up these patriotic creamers from Coffee-Mate and show them you notice all their efforts! You can also check out some great recipe ideas and other goodness at Flavorful Moments, a Nestle site.
