    When a soldier comes home.....

    I thought I would share this with all of you. I am a very proud American and even though I don't agree with many things that my government does, I still am very proud to be American. I don't agree with a 10 year war in Iraq and Afganistan over something that should have been finished when Saddam was killed and should have never involved innocent people (though war never makes that distinction), I completely support the people who are over there fighting every day. Many of them are only fighting to come home safe and keep their brothers and sisters in arms safe. They are only there because they are trying to help the innocent people there and because they are following orders that told them that they had to go. My friend with the Highway Patrol sent me this and I cried. I had to share.

    When a soldier comes home, he or she 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.

    Isn't that the truth!!!! I needed that reminder again because I have had such a horrible past couple of months and I complain to my husband who is in the Marine Corps and has been deployed to Iraq so I know he has been through worse!

    I feel terrible for all these men and women that get sent over there :( None of them should have to be over there. I am so thankful for them though and envious that they risk theyre lives for all of us! I'm so proud of my husband and what he does!
