When a Soldier Comes Home
Note: This content is being circulated around the world; please help us keep it going.
When a soldier comes home, they find it hard…
… to listen to their child whine about being bored.
… to keep a straight face when people complain about potholes.
… to be tolerant of people who complain about 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 their panic when spouses tell them they need to drive slower.
… to be compassionate when a business executive expresses a fear of flying.
… to keep from laughing when an anxious parent is afraid to send their kids off to summer camp.
… to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.
… to control their frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold.
… to remain calm when a daughter complains about having to walk the dog.
… to be civil to people who complain about their job.
… to just walk away when someone says they only get 2 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.
