~REMNANT OF HOME, A PATCH OF GRASS IN THE SANDBOX~

~Imagine being thousands of miles away from family and friends and longing for that one thing that reminded you of home~You are just one of many tents that line the path in a strange land fighting for your country to end this war on terror and do your part to make this world a better place~
~Your tent is lined with wrinkled letters and photos from home but that empty feeling just won’t leave your gut, won’t fill a longing heart~ This young man is a soldier stationed in Iraq, squatting in front of a big sand box. He had 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 of grass growing 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.~Remember their mission, their purpose and pray that this small patch of grass brings them peace of mind, heart and soul as they embark upon the many dangers they face and bring them the luck to come back to a better nation, made better by the endeavors of them and all serving abroad~Many are serving that have no friends or family that keeps in touch with them for what ever reasons~Imagine the delight of recieving cards, letters or packages from home! If you have time and want to do something to make a difference in a soldiers life~visit this web page and it will help link you..
Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we don’t stop and think about the little things that we take for granted. Upon reading this, say a little prayer for soldiers that give, give up and gave up so unselfishly for us.
