On my first Mothers Day, I’m so grateful for an amazing, beautiful daughter that is safe in my arms, and the most incredible husband to be there to protect and support us. I couldn’t ask for anything more.

    suicide by home invasion? Good to hear the bad guy bought it with his own weapon. It doesn't normally turn out this way. I had to disarm a man with a knife once at a party, fortunately I was able to kick it out of his hands as he came at me. That was enough for him to back down. I guess adrenaline kicked in a little and I could of probably taken him down if I really needed too. Glad he just left with his tail between his legs.
