Happy Veteran's Day

Since hubby is in the National Guard, we receive a magazine for the national guard soldier and family called, "Foundations". The November/December issue had something I would like to share on this Veteran's day. Regrettably, it isn't written by me, although I truly wish it had been. Nonetheless, here is the:

 "Recipe for an Army Wife"

1 1/2 cups  patience
1 lb. adaptability
3/4 cup tolerance
1 tsp. courage
A dash of adventure

Combine above ingredients. Add two tablespoons elbow grease.
Let sit alone for one year.
Marinate frequently with salty tears.
Pour off excess fat and sprinkle ever so lightly with money.
Knead dough until payday. Season with a lot of
international spices. Bake for 20 years or longer, until done.
Serve with pride!
