Friendships

Are So Important

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

Since the beginning of the holidays I’ve had some major ups and downs.. The holidays always make me sad cause my son’s physical presence isn’t around… Yet there have been so many friends that have helped me when I’ve been blue… So today I dedicate my poem to every one of you…πŸ€—

Ok ok that was kinda corny haha yet I really did want to emphasize the importance of having real friends that lift you up whenever you’re feeling down.. 

We all have them and it’s so important to reach out to them whenever you’re feeling out of sync πŸ™„..

We truly tend to be our worst critic and we all have that special friend or friends that will always point out our strengths, be silly when you need them to and will help you get past and through any slump you’re having… Sometimes the best therapy is spending time and talking with some friends πŸ€—πŸ‘«πŸ€—πŸ‘¬πŸ€—.

So this weekend take some time to show your friends you care and thank each and every one of them for always being there!!! 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ALL πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—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»

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. My gofundme link in my bio 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 “Read More” to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and compassion ❀🌻❀🌻

A Repost About Family

A Repost All About Love


Hello World,

Today I dedicate this post to SK the beautiful souls in the world that have touched the hearts of many and have turned online friendships into full blown family. This I dedicate to real people that really care for all who’s path they cross and help our world be a better day with hope, faith and true love from their hearts.

Around July 2014, I met the most caring and loving women in a group on FB due to my posts and writings and we hit it off like no other. We became instant friends and learned that we have so so much in common that it’s crazy and needless to say we have never met face to face yet I feel in my heart and soul that I’ve known them all my life. 

We have truly helped each other though some extremely hard emotional ups and downs and they have stuck by my side through the hardest time in my life….losing my son. 

Today I want to scream from the rooftops and remind everyone that you CAN have FB  IG and online friends that turn into family and those rare and beautiful souls that have turned from a FB or IG friend into whom I truly consider my sisters, brothers and family and I cannot express my love for them in just words.

Today I received the most caring care package from her and have been a blubbering mess and it couldn’t have come at a better time… THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU DEBI…THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALWAYS BEING HERE FOR ME AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO TO BRIGHTEN UP EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE WHO’S PATH YOU CROSS. I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR YOU AND YES I’M SCREAMING IT AS LOUD AS I CAN… I LOVE YOU DEBI FOREVER AND BEYOND 

Wearing it always next to the medical bracket my son gave me before he passed away and I will cherish it as I cherish you Debi.. Don’t take your friends for granted even if you only know them online… Because people that are real online can be real in person too!!!

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™
