Mowing the grass Message

I hope the picture will go through for you - of this
Canadian soldier in Afghanistan with his tiny "plot" of grass in front of his tent.

It's heartwarming!
Here is a soldier stationed in Afghanistan; stationed in a
big sand box. He asked his wife to send him dirt (Canadian 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 Canadian
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 receiving this, please say a prayer for our Canadian
soldiers that give and give (and give up) so unselfishly for us. You
don't have to send this on, but gosh, who wouldn't ?

Thanks Win S.
