I am now a Mother that no one wants to be. I love my children more than life itself and my world got turned upside down when my 1st born son Billy, also known as Liam, was murdered by a stranger in a random act of violence. I have 3 remaining living, breathing, amazing children, 2 sons and 1 daughter, 3 living,breathing,amazing step-sons and each and every one is special,creative,and unique! I also have 3 beautiful grandchildren! 2 Grandsons ages 7and 8 and a precious 3 year old Granddaughter! My Grandson Logan, is Billy’s only child, he is now 8 years old. As my daughter says, he is the warm piece of Billy that we get to touch. I enjoy cherishing and taking care of my husband and my family, leading a healthy lifestyle in spirit, soul and body, clean eating, CrossFit, sunshine,rest, listening to music and singing along! I will never be who I was before this happened. I am dedicated to learn what I can, embrace the pain, and share my raw, wounded, healing heart that is daily changing due to this great tragedy. My hope is touch lives in many ways,no matter how big or small, in honor and in memory of my son, Billy.He will live on through my words, the words of his Mother and the hearts of his family💗

In case you missed it, I am reposting my 31 days of posts from July. This is Day 13 of bereaved parents awareness month.
Only one picture because only one fits- sort of!
The story behind this family photo is that I took some of the kids to Kmart to buy matching white shirts.
I knew all the sizes so not everyone had to come along.
I had everyone leave the tags on because after the picture I was going to return them, which I did!
Virginia and I kept ours because we would actually wear them again.
I just wanted us all to match this time!
All 9 of us walked into Sears and the guy said “oh we only had you down for one” As in 1 person getting their picture taken.
The photographer crammed us all in a little room for one and it was hot!
We were all uncomfortable and there was some mumbling going on but we got the picture.
We all were sort of smiling and the shirts went back to Kmart!
