Blessings of Being and Feeling Appreciated...

History behind Military Spouse Appreciation Day...

It is celebrated on the Friday before Mother’s Day in the United States. United States citizens take this day to acknowledge the significant contributions, support, and sacrifices of spouses of their Armed Forces.
Military Spouse Day has been observed since May 23, 1984, when a proclamation by President
Ronald Reagan recognized the profound importance of spouse commitment to the readiness and well-being of military members. The US Secretary of Defense standardized the date by declaring the Friday proceeding Mother’s Day as Military Spouse Day.
Each year, the
US President normally commemorates this day with a ceremonial speech and proclamation.

I wanted to wish all of you wonderful, fabulous, brillant, strong, creative, kind and blessed Women (and Men) a very special Military Spouse Appreciation Day! I appreciate everything you contribute to our Community!
