Army Mom’s Safe Haven

EGGSHELL SHUFFLE
(For the VetWives)

They do the "eggshell shuffle" -
tiptoeing - hoping what they do or say
won't upset their vets today..
Where is the medal for the Vetwives,
the ex wives, and the ones who stay?
They fight a battle every day - trying
to take care of him;
sometimes losing themselves along the way -
praying, ever-loving, always trying.
Who hears the cries they try to muffle?
Where is the medal for all the wives
who do the "Eggshell Shuffle"?
