Did you know that November is National Military Family Appreciation Month? If you know a friend, neighbor or relative in the military, this is a great time to let them know how thankful you are for their service as well how much you appreciate the service and sacrifices of their whole family.

Woof Woof Papa served in the US Army and did 2 active duty deployments, so as the wife of an Army veteran, I can tell you that a day doesn’t go by without me taking time to be thankful for his safe return. It was a difficult time having him away, and there was lots to worry about with his safety, and taking care of things at home while he was gone.

One thing that I really appreciate NOT to have to stress out about during those tough times was health care. That’s because active duty service members AND their families are eligible for a special program called the TRICARE Health Plan, which also includes the opportunity to enroll in the TRICARE Dental Program.

About MetLife TRICARE Dental for Military Families

MetLife TRICARE Dental provides dental benefits to spouses and children of Active Duty personnel and National Guard and Reserve members and their families. It’s ideal for military families because it is a convenient and cost effective way for families to have continuous dental coverage despite changes in life events, geographical locations, or military status. Regardless of where a military family is located, coverage can be accessed from the large network of dental providers worldwide.

Families enrolled in the TRICARE Dental Program are eligible for low cost premiums, free annual exams, and discounts on orthodontist services. As I’m sure you do, I place a high value on my families health and well-being, so I think you’ll really appreciate how cost effective, flexible, and easily accessible the program is.

Give Mom the Attention She Deserves: Join the #SocialBlackout Mother’s Day Movement!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for MetLife. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Flowers, jewelry and candy are great, but this Mother’s Day give Mom something truly irreplaceable: Your Time and Attention! Put down the video games, tablets, smartphones and take a break from Facebook and Twitter…join the #SocialBlackout Movement and spend some real quality family time with mom, grandma and any other special women in your life.

social blackout for Mother's Day

We’ve all had the experience of trying to communicate with a spouse, our kids, friends or loved ones, only to feel ignored because they were too focused on their Twitter feed or were busy posting to Instagram…and we’ve probably also been guilty of  being the ones too engrossed with our social networks to notice what’s going on right around us. I’ll confess, the hubby sometimes complains that the only way to get MY attention is by tagging me on Facebook! As a blogger, social media is a big part of my job AND my life and I enjoy it! But, it’s super important to unplug and enjoy some time with loved ones and family and I’m trying to make it more of a priority.

To help, MetLife has created the #SocialBlackout movement, which challenges everyone to log off of social media on Mother’s Day, this Sunday May 12th, and give Mom the time and attention she deserves!

Moms are always there for us with undivided attention when we need it, so Mother’s Day is the perfect time to return the favor and give the gift of OUR attention! Participating is super simple…in fact, it’s probably the easiest event you’ve ever attended: just don’t show up! Instead, turn your attention to Mom  instead of friends and feeds. Just set your profile pic with the official #SocialBlackout image above, update your status with a warm Mother’s Day wish and take a break from your social sites for a day.

Help spread the Mother’s Day #SocialBlackout Movement: 

1. RSVP on the #SocialBlackout event page
2. Invite your friends to join
3. Log off Social Media on Mother’s Day!

It’s really that simple and you can visit the MetLife Facebook Page for more info.
