OPERATION SHOWER
October 16, 2013

If there were more than 5 stars I could give, I would give them 38 stars representing the 38 unit-wide showers they have held as of September 2013. They have greatly touched thousands of hearts and have made an impact to so many. Most would probably not have thought to pay attention to a pregnant military wife whose husband is deployed because many would think it came with the territory being married to a service member. It's been done before and it's nothing special right? OH but it is and Operation Shower took it above and beyond to recognize that it is special and they knew how stressful that can be to the one left behind. Not only with the added stress of being pregnant and to top it off your husband is not even in the same continent as you. They showered us with generosity, recognized us, thanked us, gifted us, honored us, and appreciated us. It has been 2 years since I was honored at one of their showers and came back a year later as a guest and it is just NOW that I am actually able to talk to people about operation shower without getting emotional! It may have been the pregnancy hormones or what I have already been through with my high risk pregnancy and delivery, but probably mostly due to how operation shower and their team made me feel that day and yes hormones! =) When I would talk about them, I relive that moment.

It's like what Maya Angelou says “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" BUT for me I will never forget what they did because of how they made me feel! I am a supporter for life.
