WHEN A SOLDIER COMES HOME ... 
This email is being circulated around-the-world – please keep it going 

(Please pass this one along, it's worth your time.

When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard....


...to listen to his son whine about being bored.  

....to keep a straight face when people complain about potholes.


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 be silent when people pray to God for a new car.


...to control his panic when his wife tells him he needs to drive slower.  

..to be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying. 

...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 remain calm when his daughter complains about having to walk the dog. 



...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.

Wow - that one really gets me. My husband will be home next week for R&R (he's in Afghanistan) and in that time there will be a new baby in the house. This is our second deployment, and all of those things are so true. Too often we complain so much about the little things, and forget what is really important. Thank you for sharing that with us.



what happened to all the pictures?
