With A Little Help From My Friends

Dreams Can Come True

Hello World, 
Some of you have read my story about my devastating loss, losing my 24 yr old son and the painful journey I’ve been on healing through my writing and a ton of wtf’s, emotional breakdowns and a ton of tears. Some of you have learned about me and my disabilities as well. First and foremost THANK YOU for all the kind words and loving support from so many that have went from followers on Instagram and followers of my blog, to becoming my family, my true and real family and for you all I am beyond grateful.

A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law saw a shuttle bus with a for sale sign in the window. So after calling and getting no response, I got up the nerve to go inquire about it, I went in to ask to speak to whomever I needed to talk to about the shuttle bus.

A gentleman came out and immediately asked me what I wanted it for… I asked him to bear with me as I didn’t want to cry telling him my story and he smiled and said ok.

After telling him about my son, our plans prior to his passing away and why I needed it he asked me what my budget was and explained it only had 22,000 miles on it and the center didn’t need it any longer. I explained about being on disability and just needed someone willing to work with me. He said to wait while he talked to his partner and would let me know. 

He told me all about it and said they felt like it belonged to me and was glad I wanted it for the right reasons and said they would drop the price from $6500 to $2500 and would work with me but it needed to be off the property ASAP… I lost it crying..

I told them that I could give them what I had including the GoFundMe funds which came to $1300 and they agreed. We wrote up a little contract and OMG MY FRIENDS… I need your help.

SOOOOO here’s my dilemma, it needs to be off that property by May 20th and I still need $1100 dollars to make this mine all mine, to begin my healing journey and begin spreading my sons ashes… yet for those that know my story, it would take me another 3 months to save that on my disability income. 

I get that it’s a hard time for all in today’s world yet when I think about it, I have over 1500+ followers on Instagram (not that half of them even know my story) yet if everyone donated even a dollar or two I’d have it by the deadline.

So I’m reaching out and asking for your help!!! The active link and story is below and I’m reaching out to ask everyone to please help me make this happen. It’s very hard for me to be this vulnerable yet I must in order to make this happen and right now between the tears and my anxiety I’m a mess 😯😒

I tried to change the amount I need in the Gofundme campaign because I don’t need $5000, I only need $2500 total minus what’s been already donated and what I saved, I only need $1100 more cause I gave what was already donated and what little I had saved as the deposit for the bus and gofundme me said to change the amount I would have to start a whole new campaign (stupid I know) 

I also already have most of the things I need to make it a livable bus for me, my dog and my sons dog… And people willing to help me do the inside as well. 

So I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and allowing myself to be vulnerable (which is so hard for me) yet this is to important for me to let pride and ego get in the way.

 I’m asking for help to please help me reach the rest that I need to acquire this bus so I can begin the journey of healing and living…

I’m ready to begin this journey, I’m ready to keep my promise to my son and spread his ashes at the places he wanted me too and I’m ready to begin this journey to heal my heart and learn to carry my loss lighter and I need your help to do so.

Thank you all for loving me when I was ready to give up, wiping my tears and lending me your light when mine was fading. Your unconditional love has shown me and helped me believe that anything is possible when we believe and don’t give up πŸ™β€πŸ™


Much love, light and peace to you all!!

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible, even after the loss of a child, which to me is the most devastating life event ever... I know for I have and am prevailing each and every day. It isn't easy and there are days where I feel I cannot go on yet always know that You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀
