Quotable Quotes for Military Moms and Spouses

I have heard some really great quotes lately!  Do you have any great quotes to share?  Please share!!!


One of our moms last week shared this awesome quote said to a recruiter:

" Do not confuse your rank with my authority!"

Jennifer Miller

Here is an awesome one from my new friend Sheila from the Michigan AF Families FB page shared with me today.

"I wear no uniforms, dress blues or Army greens; But I am in the military amongst the ranks of the rarely seen.  I have no rank upon my shoulder, salutes I do not give.  But the military is the world in which I live, for I am the mother of an Airman"

Sheila Benes


These are two of the many I have heard, so please share with all of us!

Live, Laugh, Love. If that doesn't work, Raise, Aim and Fire.

A soldier fights not because he hates the person in front of him but because he loves those behind him.

If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you. - Winnie the Pooh

“A pessimist, they say, sees a glass of water as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But a giving person sees a glass of water and starts looking for someone who might be thirsty.”
G. Donald Gale Quotes

"I am the mother of an American Airman" I give my complete and unwavering support to my Airman. As my son serves the people of the United States, so I humbly offer up my prayers for his safety and the safety and health of those he serves beside. I respect his choice to adhere to a strict moral code and system of values that has preserved our great country for over two centuries. I accept that my Airman's first duty is to his country and I understand that this sacrifice he willingly makes is what keeps our nation great. I will never expect anything but the best from my Airman for I know he is capable. I know that an Airman's heart is true and strong, and that my Airman will endure. I will never abandon my Airman, my son, and my love. I will love him unconditionally. He will know I am there for him, even when he is alone. I am disciplined, emotionally and mentally tough, learning to wait for phone calls and letters or emails home. I, like my Airman, am an expert. I stand ready to do what ever I can do to let my son, my Airman, know that we are here for him, beside him, we love him and I will pray for swift destruction of the enemies of our country. I am the person who stood guardian of this man who has become my Airman, now our guardian of freedom and the American way of life.

Those who do not believe in love, have never given birth to the love of their life.  Of all the rights of women, being a mother is ther greatest...and this mother's heart belongs to a soldier.
