This Isn’t The End Of Our Journey – I Promise

I’m keeping the biggest secret from my little baby boy. I couldn’t tell him yesterday when I came home early and hugged him tight. I couldn’t tell him when I burst into tears many times last night. Morris, I love you, I love you, I love you. More than anything else in this whole wide world.
