Our son with my Dad's WWll dog tags in Mosul. He carried these with him as a reminder of family and home while he was away. (Photo Maya Allueruzzo/AP photo)

I can't think of any words that describe my feelings other than simple gratitude. We've just come back from a week of welcoming home our son from Iraq after a 15 month deployment. I never imagined just how deeply thankful I would feel to have him back home safe and sound.

Now it is back to the studio! There are buttons to be made, ideas to be explored. I am looking forward to getting back into it. But I must say, once I've had a little break in my routine it can be oh so hard to get off the sofa in the morning. I'm thinking the cold, gray, snowy day we're having isn't helping one little bit.

Thank you to your son for giving of himself to support our country! Welcome back to both of you. I can't wait to see new buttons!
