When A Soldier Comes Home


WHEN A SOLDIER COMES HOME ...IT IS SOMETIMES HARD... be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work.
When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard.... keep a straight face when people complain about potholes

IT IS SOMETIMES HARD be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's sleep be silent when people pray to God for a new car. control his panic when his wife tells him he needs to drive slower. be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying. keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to send their kids off to summer camp. keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather. control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold. remain calm when his daughter complains about having to walk the dog. be civil to people who complain about their jobs. just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year. 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.
