Family Is Everything

And Family Isn’t Just Blood

This morning I dedicated my post to my kids and wanted to remind everyone not to forget to tell your family you love them and to show them that we care…

Yet for me family isn’t just blood…

For me family is all the people in your life that support all you do.. that believe in your dreams and help you believe in them too….

The ones that wipe your tears, the ones that lend you their light when yours is dim…

The ones that believe in you no matter what and help you believe in yourself too..

and so much more….

For me family is everything and some of my family I’ve never met…

Some are amazing Earth angels whose paths have crossed mine right here and on IG and Facebook…

Tonight I dedicate this post to all of you..

My family…

My Earth angels…

My friends…

For it’s because of all of you that I’m where I am today …

Thank you for being here…

Thank you for your consistent love and support…

Thank you for being who you are and

Thank you for sharing YOU with me…

For each and every one of you…

I AM GRATEFULπŸ™

Love Always πŸ’—

Family Is Everything

Don’t Forget To Show You Care

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

Yesterday was an amazing day for me…

My oldest and my soon to be daughter-in-law basically kidnapped me for a surprise date day πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

They took me to a fairy festival, took me to lunch at an amazing Vietnamese restaurant, took me to the beach and then took me to dinner too…

It was an amazing day and a beautiful surprise πŸ’—πŸ€—

When we got back home, for some reason while I was sitting on my bed in the bus, I got really emotional and started crying..

I thought about my beautiful daughter in Arizona who I miss dearly and can’t wait to see this summer and I of course thought about my son Michael whose physical being I miss so very much😒

It made me think about how easily we forget to tell our family how much we love and appreciate them πŸ€”πŸ™„

It’s so easy to compliment others and thank them for all we do.. Yet we forget to tell our family how much we love and appreciate them too…

So today I dedicate my post to my family and show them lots of love… And that also goes to my son that’s up in heaven above … Pics below⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇

So my friends don’t forget your family cause they are always there… Tell them that you love them & show them that you care β€πŸ’—β€

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

True Friends Will Always Stay

Even If Your Far Away


Hello World,

The last 10 days has been incredible and amazing… 

Seeing friends that are actually family, that I’ve know for over 40 yrs yet haven’t seen since 1987 has been an incredible event in my life… 

Going back to the places I grew up, having flashbacks of the times I spent there from 5 yrs old to 29 yrs old brought up past emotions from when my mom passed in 1985 and even issues that I thought I had dealt with yet actually stuffed… 

Yet it truly was incredible and very much needed… β€πŸ‘¨β€β€β€πŸ‘¨

Being there and seeing old friends and making some new…truly helped me realize what should be important to you.. and it doesn’t matter if you’re together or apart… True Friends are family that stay in your heart.. and no matter where you go or what ever you do… True friends will always be right there for you!!!! 

Have a beautiful day my friends πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Family Isn’t About Blood

It’s About Connections From Your Heart!

Hello World,

As you all know my second mom passed away last week and although we lost touch for 20 yrs the first 15 yrs and the last 10 yrs we’ve been in touch just about every day. Yet in the last 10 yrs, Katy my bff, my sister, my heart and my rock lost her brother, then I lost my son and now her mom. 

There was no way I wasn’t going to get myself to Atlantic City even if I seriously had to walk to be here for them, as they have always been here for me over my life and as always the universe provided a way for me to fly there on Wednesday… 

I was in contact with Katy’s brother/my brother and we decided to keep it a surprise and not let Katy know… Katy lives in Paris and for 10 yrs we have been trying to get together, yet one thing or another kept preventing it.. not this time.. and to explain the emotion when we saw each other would be impossible… Yet although this wasn’t the reunion we had planned due to her mom passing… It has been a reunion like no other and I wanted to share it with you!!! 

Seeing friends and family that I grew up with that I haven’t seen in 30 years has been incredible… Brian and Keith my brothers, Andre the love of my life and Julio whom I love so very much and not a day has gone by in the past 30 yrs where I haven’t thought about them. Meeting my gorgeous neices Asia and Miranda and making new friends that are actually more family now Bonnie, Mary, Carl, Lori and reminiscing about the old days, making plans for new times and adventures and reconnecting with those I have and will always love is a feeling that I cannot explain and a feeling that will be in my heart forever and beyond. 

So my friends always always appreciate the moments you have and have had… so you’ll never regret the moments you’ve missed. Much love to you all today, forever and beyond!! 

Thank you all for understanding my absence as the funeral was yesterday and although I’m not going home until Wednesday,  I just wanted you all to know that I’m ok and I miss and love you all so very much… Thank you for all your messages, your love, your support and your genuine concern during my absence. YOU ALL truly mean the world to me and I mean that with all of my being β€πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Have a beautiful rest weekend my friends πŸ€—β€

Our Words Create Our Reality

So Choose Positive Words Every Day


Hello World,

We all have good days and bad days yet it’s up to you to decide on which one… Our words create our reality so pick ones that make your day fun 🌻

Today I’m working on the kitchen part of the bus and so very excited… (Will post pics of it later)

Yet right when we we’re putting the kitchen cabinet in (which was giving us a hard time) my friend says “it’s gonna be impossible!” and it made me stop in my tracks cause nothing is impossible and I made her take the word back… 

Hahaha as soon as she said. “I take that word back”  we got the cabinet in without an issue… Haha so do your best to use positive words all throughout your day… Cause once you start using negative words you just ruined a beautiful day 

Still needing help to get some things I need for the bus conversion. If anyone know where I can get a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler, and a 200 watt solar panel kit please let me know. My gofundme link below is still active and those are really the only things left that I’m needing help with to complete the bus and begin my journey to sprinkle my son’s ashes and heal… The full story is under the picture of me and my son in the campaign just click on β€œRead More” to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light β€β€πŸ™πŸ™β€β€

Compassion Is Passion

Straight From The Heart


Hello World,

Although this was a difficult weekend the compassion, love, support and kindness I received from everyone showed me that no matter what we may face, no matter how difficult life can be… No matter what it is you’re going through, with the help of friends and family what you may be dealing with won’t be as bad as it could be if you had to face it alone  πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Compassion truly comes from the heart and it helped me so much this weekend… And made yesterday so much easier to bear… Don’t ever lose compassion for others cause compassion IS passion straight from the heart and it’s truly what being human is all about… ❀🌻❀🌻❀🌻❀🌻🌻

Still needing help with some things I need for the bus conversion. If anyone know where I can get a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler, and a 200 watt solar panel kit please let me know.
