I write to you all from my dining room table, watching the snow flutter down in a peaceful cascade, and sipping on a hot cup of coffee. Man, talk about heaven.
Iraq is now just a memory for me, and a challenge that I will never forget.
Oh, and mom was so excited to see me.. .she cried, and then in that way that mothers do everywhere, admonished me for putting her through all that worry. But through the tears, the hugs, and the emotion, it was what a homecoming was supposed to be like.
So I hope that I find everyone happy, healthy, and in good sprints this holiday season and I thank each and every one of you for the letters, care packages, cards, and well wishes.
Merry Christmas and the best in 2008!
