Happy Birthday Brandon

A Mom’s Love

Hello World  

I dedicate this beautiful day to my oldest son….. 

There truly are no words to express the love a mother has for her children… We carry them for 9 months, we nurture them and watch them grow… And although we try to do what’s best for them.. We truly never know how they will turn out… Cause There is no book or perfect plan… On how to teach your son to be a man… 

I’ve made mistakes as we all do… Yet to see you all grown up, to see how you’ve grown up from that silly little boy to a man I am so very proud of… Fills my heart …

Happy Birthday Brandon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I sometimes wish that you were still small & not yet big and strong and tall..

For when I look at yesterday..

I close my eyes and see you play..

I often miss that little boy..

Who pestered me to buy a toy..

Who filled my life with pure delight..

From early morn to late at night…

I’ve watched you change…

I’ve watched you grow…

As seasons come & quickly go…

Now you’re all grown up and proud I am…

You’ve grown up and become 

One hell of a man!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Birthday Brandon 

I’ll love you forever

I’ll like you for always

Forever & Always

My baby you’ll be ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

REGRETSย 

It’s A Form Of Self Punishment


Hello World, 

Happy New Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

There’s a song by Nina Simone called “Feeling Good” it’s been done by various artists yet Michael Buble’s version I love and this morning as I was doing my morning routine and listening to it… I started thinking about things in my past and present and really looked into if I had any regrets and I can honestly say no… ๐Ÿค”

Of course there are things I think I could’ve done better or even not at all… Yet regrets nope I have none.. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ณ

We all have times where we think woulda, coulda, shoulda… Yet I wouldn’t be where I am today or the person I am if I hadn’t done the things I’ve done… ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚…

Moral of this story: Don’t ever regret things from your past, things that you didn’t get to say or to do… Cause regret is a form of self punishment and it’s really not good for you too.. 

Let go of your past and release all that is gone.. Cause TODAY is a new dawn.. It’s a new day.. It’s a new life.. And it’s time to feel…. 

GOOD

Have a beautiful day world๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Believe You Can

And You Will


Hello World

This morning I woke up thinking about the bus and how far I’ve come and It made me smile really big at all the work I’ve doneโ˜บ

I started to think about all the times I started to lose faith and belief and I thought about all of the people that helped me keep the faith and believe that my dreams would come true and it is happening right before my eyes ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜€.

So many times I wanted to give up and it’s truly with determination, the support of so many beautiful souls that believed in me when I didn’t,  people that held me up when my faith started to waiver and truly believing that kept me going and wow my dream is literally right around the corner!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—..

Moral of this story: 

Whenever your faith starts to waiver and you stop believing in you.. Hold on tight to faith and believing cause that’s what makes dreams come true!๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—

Time Never Changesย 

The Hours Remain The Same


Hello World,  

The last few days I caught myself stressing about the 4th being right around the corner and looking at the things I still need to do to make the bus ready and boy oh boy I’ve been a mess ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ต.

So yesterday I meditated and prayed a lot because it was making anxious and sad that I might not be ready in 10 days… And this morning I woke up to an email from the organization in the Keys that said because they don’t have all the supplies needed down there yet that it wouldn’t be until AFTER the 15th before they will ask the volunteers to start going down there to help rebuild…

Although I did want to leave on Michael’s birthday I know that the “date” doesn’t matter cause it’s the journey itself that does… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Moral of the story: Don’t let hurry worry get stuck in your mind cause the hours of the day don’t change so don’t stress out about the time. We don’t have to always get things done in one day.. So take your time, pace yourself and don’t let stress get in your way๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Never Ever Doubt Yourself

Believe In Your Dreams and Your Goals


Hello World

When we share our dreams and goals with others, many will not believe that it’s possible. Many will tell you that your dreams or goals are too big and that you’ll never reach them.. Some will put doubt and fear in your head as well… yet who’s dreams are they? Theirs or yours?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

This morning I woke up thinking about all the people that thought I was crazy (after my son passed away) for wanting to get a bus and convert it into a living home on wheels. To travel all over the country sprinkling his ashes at all the beautiful places that we wanted too see and especially to do it alone.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

It made me giggle and actually start laughing hard cause at one point all their doubts and negativity stated to make me doubt that I could do it too… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” yet look at where I am now! 

The bus is almost finished and my journey will soon begin and I can smile at all the doubters cause in my heart I knew I’d win ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

Now when I look back at things I giggle and I laugh… cause I removed the negativity in my life and started to release the pain of my past. I believed with all my heart that I could make this dream come true, and I did exactly that with positivity and YOU.. 

So push all doubt out of your head and push negative people away from you.. They’re your dreams and it’s your life to live how you want too!!”

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Optimism Is Having Faith

To Achieve Your Dreams


Hello World, 

Well I figured out what that little bit of fear I was experiencing was… And as I worked through it I had to laugh and laugh hard… Cause it basically was a reality check showing me that my dream IS and HAS come true..๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

I guess for me all this time I’ve been working towards getting the bus, converting it and having the ability to travel and keep my promise to my son to live our dream and sprinkle his ashes at all the places we wanted to see, was still in the back of my mind as a dream that I hoped would one day come true and it hit me hard that it HAS come true and it IS happening and I WILL be on the road living that dream very very soon. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

I guess it was one of those omg wake-up call reality checks when I walked out if the bus the other night and it scared the crap out of me… Like REALLY??? REALITY CHECK RICCI… It’s happening right here, right now!!!! Someone pinch me please hahaha ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ… 

Which brought this poem/quote/whatever you wanna call it to mind this morning…๐Ÿค— Hope, Faith, Believing and Optimism all go hand in hand and they all lead you to living the life of your dreams!!! So always have hope, always have faith and always believe in being optimistic.. Cause optimism is having the faith to turn your dreams into your reality.. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ 

I know cause I believed and my dream is now my reality ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’— Never stop believing my friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—and always believe YOU CAN ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Always Believe

In You


Hello World

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  ๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™

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… ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—.


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 ๐Ÿ™.

The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while Iโ€™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 far๐Ÿ˜€โค๐Ÿค—.


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 ๐Ÿค— 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.
