2-9-2005 --- Note from the webmistress: I just received this link to an update re: this picture & story (thanks to Lowell H). Thank you everyone who visits here and those of you who took part in this great discussion. I must admit that I'm glad it's a true story (according to Snopes). In my humble opinion, it's just one of those stories that seems to warm our hearts and hopefully, make us appreciate just what our soldiers do for each one of us.
Sometimes the little things we take for granted - Priceless
Here is a soldier stationed in Iraq, stationed in a big sand box he asked his wife to send him dirt, fertilizer and some grass seeds so he can have the sweet aroma and feel the grass grow beneath his feet. 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, please say a prayer for our soldiers that give (and give up) so unselfishly for us.
