A common space for harmonic peacemakers
I received this today and thought, not another one again, and then I thought, every other day is necessary so we will not forget. It’s too easy to get caught up in our own lives and I felt bad because of it. The saying “out of sight, out of mind” comes to me and this can’t be out of sight. Have a wonderful day.
WHEN A SOLDIER COMES HOME
When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard.....
...to listen to his son whine about being bored.
.....to keep a straigth 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 of
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
I was asked to pass this on and I will gladly do so,
