Here is an American stationed in Iraq (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.    
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 airmen, Marines, sailors, and soldiers that give (and give up) so unselfishly for us.

You don't have to send this on, but who wouldn't...?
