I was going to complain......

I was going to complain about how hot it is... then I realized that at least:
1.) it isn't 109 degrees;
2.) I'm not 5,700 miles from home;
3.) I'm not dressed in a full BDU uniform and helmet and carrying 70+ lbs.;
4.) there is very little chance that anyone will shoot at me or that I might drive over a bomb in the road today

Thanks to all who serve!

Jennifer Wolsey said... about perspective! Thank you so much for posting that. Every time I even start to complain about the heat today...I'll replace it with a prayer.

RIGHT-ON! My step-son will be going over in about a month, just graduated from basic a few months ago. These things are on our minds a lot lately.

Amen, saw this all over Facebook yesterday, so true. I added it to my wall, and this is a great place also to remind us all.
