Reality in Army Wives

One of my favorite shows to watch with my teenage daughter is Lifetime’s Army Wives. It comes on every Sunday evening and if we aren’t able to sit down and watch it we record it on the DVR. Let me give you non-Army Wives watchers a brief description that came from the MyLifetime.com:

armywives “The show follows the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women — and one man — living with their spouses and families on an active Army post.”

The episode we watched was from Sunday and one of the characters had recently gone through a divorce from her army husband. Her finances were low, she needed a root canal, had to sell her grandmother’s broach, was re-entering the workforce… It all just hit too close to home.

Causing deep sigh and tearful eyes.

Then, by the end, things started to look up somewhat. Her friends came over with yummies and housewarming gifts to help her fix up her place.

Maybe the good news I received today (assistance with my childcare payments) is the beginning of my looking up, and the next time I watch a television show about a newly divorced mom it won’t cause the teary eyes.
