He said he stabbed me because he loved me

“He was a plain jane when I married him. If I wore lipgloss, it was a problem. If I got my ears pierced, I was a bitch. I thought I was in love. I was the one who went for counseling because I wanted to make myself better for him. I didn’t want to be like the other people who had babies and weren’t married. He started beating me then he started beating our children. I felt like I was losing my mind because I started plotting for ways to cut his body up and drain his blood in the bathtub. In my head, In my head I heard my mama say the same thing that happened to her is going to happen to me. Her husband blinded her. I knew it was time to go

I was stabbed 14 times with a hunting kife and my children woke up to me screaming and he went after my kids. My 8-year-old daughter was in the bed with me and he put a knife to her and threatened to cut her throat if she screamed. My son went after him. When he was through I said I forgive you and I love you.’ He said, ‘Bitch you don’t love me,’ and left. He later told the police he stabbed me because he loved me. That was the last time a man will ever abuse me or love me like that.

I now make floral arrangements and pins for victims of domestic violence or loved ones who passed on. Helping others get through their time of grief gives me a purpose and a chance to give from my heart.”

    Wow. There’s not much to say after reading this story. There is a fine line between love and hate and where some people are unable to see the reality of love versus hate is sad. Thank you for this story and This Woman’s courage to inspire her children through her own actions of celebrating life through her floral arrangements and giving them to others of domestic violence incidents. Let us celebrate her human kindness and her paying it forward with hope, love, and joy. What an awesome way to inspire others.
