Never Ending Love

Today (Oct 11) marks the 1 year anniversary of our sweet Ashlyn's passing away and her return to our loving Heavenly Father. Also the 1 year mark has come and gone for when Dallin (Aug 6), Kaitlyn (Aug 8) and Braden (Aug 19) passed away. When the 1 year anniversary of each of them came, I couldn't get myself to write about it. Now I would like to share my thoughts and feelings. I miss so very much my precious children who have passed, all 6 of them. The 2 year anniversary of the passing of Brian and Brendan was September 24. I think of them often and wonder what they would look like, what their personalities would be like and what it would be like to raise them. I do know that I will get to see them again and raise them some day. That is Thomas and I's goal to live worthy so that when that day does come we will have proven ourselves worthy to raise all our children who have gone on before us. I know that the Lord has prepared a way for that. That is one of the greatest pieces of knowledge that I possess. They will always be my precious little angels and I'm so grateful to be their mother. My love for them is never ending.

My dear mother gave me this beautiful necklace for my birthday. I love her so very much. This necklace means so much to me. It has all the names of my children engraved on it. One side are all my daughters names and on the other side is all my sons names. I'm so proud to be the mother of these precious 8 children. I'm so grateful and blessed to have Rachel and Haley here on this earth with me. They mean everything to me.
