I personally know how hard it is to live in a family where one of your parents is in the military. The constant worry and loneliness are never good for you. You try to support your family and show them how strong you are while, inside, there is sadness in you. So, it is really important that people get to know the Day of Spouse Appreciation and bring joy to their friends. They are the backbone that holds it all together. We should all honor their commitment and strength and make sure people around know how important they are.

Though not all people about this holiday, the Armed Forces organize special events for military spouses and, often, give small vacations to servicemen to come back to their families. This year, the Appreciation Day of Military Spouses is on Friday, May, 11th. So, you have little time to prepare some surprise for your friend and plan something special.

Those people who are in the military should always remember to get in contact with their families on this day if they can. I believe that the Day of military spouses is not only about them but about children and parents as well. Basically, the whole family that is worrying about the well-being of servicemen deserve a few warm words.

There are many Military Spouse Appreciation Day ideas on the Internet on how to make their day special. A written note from their spouse would be a perfect gift. Next year, you can take care of it beforehand and offer this idea to the spouse. Hire a nanny for children or take them to grandparents to give them free time. Considering that most spouses are women waiting for their husbands, offer your friend a girls’ night out. When the children are taken care of, this is time to treat yourself! Your friend needs to relax. If she prefers a calm evening, stay in and binge-watch your favorite series or movies. Though National Military Spouse Days are not federal holidays and many people have to work, convince them to take a day off and do what they like the most. Push them towards their hobbies and participate as well.

Read some military spouse blog to find more ideas on what they would like to do on their day. You can get there an idea of a cool present that may be good for your friend.
