When I started to go home, I looked around and realized I didn't know where I was at.

I finally walked inside my door my Morn was a nervous wreck and had been crying because she was so worried when I had not returned home when she expected me to. Needless to say it sure felt good to crawl into my warm bed that night. Many years later I was no longer a small boy -lost in the dark on a hunting trip but instead I was a grown man lost in the darkness of sin.
