I didn't really know which category to put this under, but here it goes...Another kewl email from that Shadey man:
Home is never far away.
MOWING GRASS? -- PRICELESS:
This is an Army soldier in Iraq with his tiny 'plot' of grass in front of his tent. Here is a soldier, stationed in Iraq , ... a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt ( US soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he could have the sweet aroma, and feel the grass grow beneath his feet.
When the men of the squadron have a mission that they are going on, they take turns walking through the grass and the American soil -- to bring them good luck.
(Notice that HE's cutting his grass --with a pair of a scissors, no less.)
Sometimes we're in such a hurry, that we don't bother to stop and think about the little things that we take for granted.
The next time you're mowing your lawn, add a little prayer for our soldiers that give and give, so unselfishly for all of us.
