MOWING GRASS — PRICELESS!!!

I hope the picture will go through for you – of this Army soldier in Iraq with his tiny ‘plot’ of grass in front of his tent. It’s heartwarming! Here is a soldier stationed in Iraq , stationed in a big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt ( U.S. soil), fertilizer, and some grass seed so that he can 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.

If you notice, he is even cutting the grass with a pair of scissors. Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don’t stop and think about the little things that we take for granted. Upon receiving this, say a little prayer for our soldiers that give and give and give unselfishly for us. You don’t have to send this on, but gosh, who wouldn’t?
