|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 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.|
