Words Have Power, They Are magic Pt 6

I found myself alone, with a baby. With myself. I think I spent the first 6 months of his life crying. Every time I looked at my son, I saw my wife. I saw her eyes, her nose, and her smile. At times, I did not think I could stand it. I did not think that I could ever look at him again. I had thought of giving him up, to another family to raise him. Perhaps a family...

Dirt Bike Riding

I went dirt bike riding this weekend.
