When A Soldier Comes Home by Alison Crane, RN, MS (Saturday, May 2, 2008)

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 try to be more understanding to people

who complain about the stress in their jobs.

…to just walk away when someone says they
only get two weeks of vacation a year.


…to be happy for a friend’s new hot tub.


…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.
