This Military Wife's Adventure

Military Wives Fellowship is a ministry to encourage military wives through Jesus Christ.

Skype Birthday Party:

Deployments can wreck havoc on our holidays and special days like birthdays. I wanted to keep my daughter’s 8th birthday party special and still include daddy in on the fun.

A creative way to do this is through a Skype Birthday Party! It took a little bit of planning on mom and dad’s part. We had picked up a cake, candles, party favors, plus some birthday presents from family, mom, and dad beforehand and coordinated our schedules. Dad went to the PX and picked up his “cake” also known as a cinnamon roll (it’s all he could find at his deployed location).

The event went like this…

- Daddy called via Skype

- We put on our party hats (even dad had a hat which we place on top of computer monitor)

- We sang “Happy Birthday”

- Ate cake (Dad ate his “cake” too)

- Opened presents

It was fun (though it is not the same as having daddy home). We made the most of our circumstances and choose to have a good time. Things may not be the way you want, but we can be resourceful and make the most of things. I hope this will encourage you to be creative and included your deployed spouse in your special events.

Blessings!

    I sometimes wish I would have had things like Skype when I was growing up as a military brat. My dad really missed out...
