Mother Nature Is No Joke

We Cannot Control Her Wrath


Hello World,

Just an update to let everyone know I’m safe and sound… Living in Florida I’ve been through a lot yet Hurricane Irma has destroyed so many places in Florida, the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, Cuba and so many others and they all need our prayers, our love and positive energy so please continue to do so.. πŸ™β€

I am going to take a different journey once we get the ok to go to the Florida keys to assist in the cleanup cause they will be needing lots of help and I will be going as soon as I can get the inside electric going in the bus……  

I know that’s what my son would do too, so putting off my own healing journey right now is what I feel I must do too… Almost all of Southern Florida…From Tampa down to the Keys aren’t even accessible for a while yet as soon as they call for help I’ll be going down to do so..

Most of you know that I’m all about being optimistic, real, always staying positive and helping others to stay positive too and as I have been helped by so many, I am honored to be able to help others that need my help now too…. β€πŸ™β€

You all know that I still need a 2000 watt inverter and the batteries for it plus the solar panel to keep the batteries charged… Being there will be little if any electric down in the Keys these things are a necessity…the total cost i still need for that is $554… My gofundme link below is still active and I’m asking for your help so I can be of service where I’m needed most… 

Thank you all for your love, concern and constant support… I am safe… I truly am grateful for you all and grateful that I’ll have the ability to help others as others have helped me… Much love to you all … And thank you πŸ™β€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€

Life Smiles Back At You

When You Live A Positive Life


Hello World,

As Children are Taught The Golden Rules.. Do Onto Others, As You would have them do into you… I haven’t lived that way all my life but now I truly do… And I can actually truly say I’ve lived most of my life like that too πŸ€—β€

Today was an incredible day, a heartwarming and productive day on the bus too…. Yet tonight a very special friend that has turned into my Family said something in a response to one of my posts on Instagram that made me stop and think… πŸ€”

After my son passed away I became a very bitter, angry and very depressed soul, I lost me for over 18 months and when I made the decision to change my life and get me back it wasn’t an easy task… I was always a happy happy made everyone smile type of person and when I a started being me again life surrounded me with the most incredible souls and I wrote this because I’m so grateful for all of you and because it’s really true too……..πŸ€”πŸ™„

That saying what comes around goes around  is really very true… Cause when you live your life in a positive way, life smiles right back at you 😁❀

I’m now only needing help to get the 2000 watt inverter and the 200 watt solar panel kit for me to have electricity inside without using the engine batteries while stopped at night. The active link is below for anyone that can help or share the link if you can and Please click on β€œRead More” under the picture of me and my son to read all about me and my journey πŸ˜˜πŸ˜

Thank you all for sharing you… I am πŸ™πŸ€—

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€

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!!!
