Homesick Marine --

My poor baby is home sick and I feel horrible.
I am getting sick. : / I have no clue how to help him.
Being sick is not making it any better considering I just want to sleep and not talk to him alot on webcam.
Yesterday was a real debbie downer. I didn't like it and neither did he.
I just don't like to see him upset or down.
I need some good advice on how to make him feel better and not so home sick.


  1. The best advice I can give is to just keep things light and cheery when you talk. Fill him in on your day and about what is going on. Don't let him dwell too much!

    Also send him a carepackage of the best things from home. Cookies or some treats that are special to where you live. Some pictures too! I hope that helps a little.

  2. Allie had some great suggestions. Like she said when you talk to him or correspond keep things upbeat and my husband LOVED care packages and lots of pics. I am a new follower and fellow military wife. I have also grabbed your button and put it on my sidebar. I hope you can do the same.

  3. send him packages that remind him of things from home as allie said. that always cheers up my marine and gets him thinking straight again! maybe start writing letters back and forth, that way you both have something to look forward too as well

  4. I am so impressed with you. You are so young and are doing so much with your life. My suggestion to you would be to do like the other ladies here said and keep it light and fun when talking to him. Send him a care package with lots of hometown goodies. His favorite sports stuff, snack foods those kinds of things. Make sure to include a few pictures of yourself and a pep talk letter. :)

    Hope you feel better soon doll!

    PS I'm a Marine wife of 8 years. Its gets so much better. I promise!
