1) Never worrying that spoiling him rotten with all of his favorite treats will be bad for him.
2) Having someone to eat up all the cheese, cookies and ice cream in the house so that I won’t be tempted by them.
3) Being able to say to him every morning, “I love waking up to your sweet, kind, beautiful face.” Because every extra morning with him was such a gift.
4) Having a bucket list of wonderful, fun things we did together.
5) Having a dog.
