This Army soldier in Iraq with his tiny "plot" of grass in front of his tent.
It's heartwarming and puts the mundane tasks of our daily lives into perspective!
Here is a soldier stationed in Iraq ... stationed in a big sand box (and who among us can't relate to sandboxes given we use a litterbox efurryday?). 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 a 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 viewing this, please say a prayer for our soldiers who give (and sometimes give up their lives) so unselfishly for us.
