Hey all! I started sharing my feelings on social media. I realize most people don’t need or want to know about what’s going on. It’s a simple “like” or “love” or “sad face” and move on. I get it. I do it too. However, I have some things to say, or honestly, just get off my chest. So here we are.
In 2008 I married my best friend. I loved him. SO much. We had fun living life together for a while! We had a baby in 2010. Who else can say they had a baby on 90210? Nice!!!! It was, in fact, my favorite show.
We loved that baby so much that we thought for sure #2 was a necessity! And there he was on 9-20-13!
Life is good, right? Two healthy kids! A roof over our heads! Two good jobs! Happily married couple…Sadly no. Landon was a twin. About 20 weeks in, we lost the other baby. I broke that news to his Daddy on Avery’s first day of dance. He was strong for us that day. He took her to dance. I stayed home. I missed my baby’s first day of dance. But he was there.
You see, he was a good dad. He was a good person. However, something inside of him kept him from ever being there again. He lost his way. Alcohol took over. And we didn’t know why until a few years later. It wasn’t until then that we finally figured out something was really wrong. It was then that he took his life.
And now, it’s just the three of us.
