Blessings of Military Medical Care...

Over the past couple of weeks I have been dealing with Medical concerns and ailments that have been with me for quite some time. Some have escalated and could just not wait for me to "have time to take care of them." I hope this month to be a month of healing for all of us!

I thought it appropriate to share one of our biggest blessings in the Military Community. And that is of Health Care. We are blessed to have complimentary care from Doctor's visits to X-Rays, to surgery to prescriptions. I have been blessed this week to have received thousands of dollars worth of wonderful medical care and will receive thousands more this month.

I realize that it does not always happen this way, but the Universe and God's blessings aligned for me to receive immediate appointments, dedicated and kind Providers, Nurses and Technicians, health saving medications and testing. Every step of the way my Husband and I felt so blessed by our great fortune of Medical Care. I know some people do not feel it is free or adequate. But I feel is. On Post, I never have to come out of pocket for any care. And my Family's needs are met.

Yes, sometimes you do have to wait for appointments or in a long line at the Pharmacy. Sometimes you wait hours in the Emergency Room. But I have had to do the same in Civilian Doctor's Offices and Hospitals- all the while paying a great deal of money. And there are special circumstances where you may have to see a Civilian Specialist and pay a part of or all of the costs. I am okay with that too. I realize that I save so much all year long with our blessing of Military Medical Care that I am able to be able to afford the other when it arises.

There are alot of people in our Country who are suffering and do not have any Medical Care. I am so blessed to know that my Family, most especially my Children, will never have to go without the care of Doctors, Hospitals and Medicines. That is such a comfort and blessing to my heart, soul and spirit! I hope it is to yours as well!

If you or your family is hurting today, please know that you will be in my prayers. I pray for your healing as I pray for my own. As Military Wives and Moms, we have to be so mindful of the fact that we are always trying to take care of others (and at times alone because our Husband's are deployed) that we forget to take care of ourselves like we should.

The best gift we can give our Children is to take care of their Mothers!

Thought of inspiration...

Strive to be first. First to nod, first to smile, first to compliment and first to forgive.

  1. Here here! :) Great post. I read and hear and see sooo many people without healthcare or who had insurance and then lose it. I sometimes pull my hair out dealing with Tricare, lol, but I am thankful to know we can take our kids to the dr's at anytime. I didn't have that luxury when I was we had no insurance. My husband had some insurance growing up, but only when his Dad had work.

    Praying for you and all others who are dealing with health issues.
