WHEN A SOLDIER COMES HOME
When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard....
...to listen to his son whine about being bored.
...to be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work.
...to be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's sleep.
....to keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to send their kids off to summer camp.
....to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.
....to control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold.
....to be civil to people who complain about their jobs.
....to just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year.
....to be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house.
The only thing harder than being a Soldier...
Is loving one.
I found the above at Gracie Jewellery. Thank you Gracie for this wonderful way to honor our Military.
I for one will remember and be forever grateful to the men and women who are serving and have served our countries so willingly and sacrificially.
A special Thank You to my nephews Brian and Will.
Brian has been a Chaplain in the US Military for several years, having served both in Iraq and in Afghanistan.
Will has been in the US Military for almost a year.
He is presently stationed in Italy.
Thank you also to Judy and Don, their parents, who have stood behind and beside their sons as they made their decision to join the Military.
Thank you to all of you who have sacrificed, we enjoy our freedom today because of you.
I Will Remember!
Warm hugs, Cindy
