As police spouses, we often get overlooked but the truth is we are the heroes that hold it all together at home. It is important that we are recognized and appreciated, too. We walk the thin blue line right alongside our spouses and I can’t say it is always easy!
There are never expectations that we should have help, but gosh, if someone offers, it is so appreciated! And by all means ladies, if someone offers to help you, TAKE IT! You deserve it!
But a little thank you for what you do can also go a long way. Honestly, it is the ONE thing that can change my day completely around. Whether it’s a stranger, a friend, neighbor or even my officer giving me recognition for pulling it all together during one exhausting day.
So if you want to help out a police spouse you know, here are some things she will definitely appreciate:
1.Bring a meal for a police wife, girlfriend or fiance
2.Lend a listening ear- talking and letting her vent is priceless!
3. Babysit their children- this is at no cost, of course
5. Offer to bring a coffee or go to a coffee date together
6.Deliver baked goods
7.Supply a quick craft for their children to keep them occupied for a short time- this is golden!!
8.Say thank you and acknowledge their strength
9.Write an appreciative note or card
