Moments Turn Into Memories
Today a friend brought a few campers over too see the bus and he himself hasn’t seen it in a while either.. I showed them the before pictures and they were amazed at what I’ve done and said it’s inspiring them to do it too…. Now Not that I’m tooting my own horn (even though it did feel incredible coming from strangers) the feeling I had made me think about everything that has happened during this project… 🤔😱🙄😡😢😨❤
The good, the AHHHH’s, the hell yes times and the oh shit times too… And yet each and every moment, good, bad and indifferent are moments that got me to where I am today and the feeling is amazing 😁🤗😁🤗😁…
I have been absolutely loving working on the bus and to see it coming all together is a feeling I really can’t explain 🤔 🙄. Although there have been quite a few wtf’s and doing things over cause of my picky butt lol when I look back at when I started till now I can actually say wow Ricci.. you’ve done good 🤗😁🤗😁🤗 and that is an amazing feeling ❤🙏❤
Don’t ever forget to pat yourself on the back for a job well done or any accomplishment. Embrace every moment in your life, cause no matter if they are good, bad or indifferent…. It’s every one of those moments that make for memories that last a lifetime and those moments and memories make up your life…

Today after I learned that I am 400 miles away from the predicted path of hurricane Irma and won’t be affected by it I spent the whole day making window curtain insulation panels and getting shelves put up cause I decided that if Southern Florida needs help I want to be able to go there in the bus and help being that I’m in Florida too!!! So I’m totally on a mission get this done 🙏❤🙏❤🙏
Luckily the bus is really really insulated well yet I wanted to make something that covered the windows for privacy, that I could put up and take down easily and that helped insulated the windows themselves cause they are big and there’s 10 of them… So I came up with the idea to use a thin insulation (reflectix) that prevents condensation and cover it with a Navy blue material so the inside at night matched the theme of my blog Hello World Goodnight Universe and it turned out perfectly… 🤗❤🤗.
I still need to add the Velcro and finish decorating them yet here’s what it looks like so far (excuse the tape I used to hold them in place lol) it’s all coming together and I’m so so excited and so grateful 🙏.
The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this far😀❤🤗.
I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times 🤗 My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know.
Goodnight Universe ❤🌻❤
To All You Do and Do Not Know
What a beautiful act of kindness I got to witness today…. 😍😘😍😘😍😘😍😘😍
As I was checking out of my least favorite store ever (the one that begins with WAL lol lol) There were 2 people in front of me and the one checking out was I would say in her late 70’s to mid 80’s…
Now I’ve read about these things happening yet never saw until the other day and I LOST IT…. She had the basic staples like bread, milk, eggs etc and when she saw the total she was over by about $15 and as she was trying to decide what to put back I stepped up and asked how much she needed and before the cashier could answer the woman in front of me said… How much is her total amount.. the cashier told her and not only did the lady pay for it.. she immediately bought her a $100 Walmart gift card and gave that to her too….
Yep she lost it, I lost it, the cashier lost it and all the nice lady said was “kindness isn’t something we should TRY to do its something we should all do every single day…” She said “it’s not about money, it’s not about things, it’s just about caring for others and that’s what makes us human beings….”
I told her I was going to use that in my post and I would have taken a picture yet the elderly lady said she didn’t want one taken cause she wasn’t up to par… We all laughed, smiled and hugged and that was then end of that.🤗😀
Moral of this story… “It’s not about money, it’s not about things… Being kind to everyone is about being a “real” human being!!!”
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗🌻
There are a few items I still need to get so I can complete the bus and make it livable.. If anyone knows where I can get a 2000 watt or higher inverter, a 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. 🙏
My gofundme link is still active for anyone that would like to help… Or if anyone has one of those items they would be willing to donate please email me, send me a direct message or comment below. The active link is below. Please click “Read More” below the picture of me and my son to read the fully story… Please help if you are able or share the link so WE can continue converting the bus and move forward with my journey to heal and honor my son.. much love my friends🙏❤🙏
