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™

You Have No Control On Another’s Behavior

You Only Have Control Of Your Own


Hello World,

I have a few friends that are going through various issues and none that are cause by themselves… Yet it made me think of this poem and another one I wrote a while back… πŸ€—β€πŸ€—β€…

I have two beliefs that I of course learned the hard way… Yet even though I know it.. it’s hard sometimes to implement it even when I know I should… When any situation or issue rises I try to only think of this: Can I control it? No… Then let it go and move on…. Can I control it? Yes… Then get off your ass and do something about it… πŸ€”πŸ™„

Both are not very easy yet the “control it yes” is easier than not… So Make a list and do what you need to and don’t you ever stop!!!… β€πŸ™β€…

…………

I’m finally back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son and spread his ashes where I promised him I would…In order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engines battery, I need a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries which costs $364 total. I would also like to get a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times and the cost for the kit is $390. 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. Thank you to all that have helped me get to where I am today, words can’t express my gratitude for you all πŸ€—β€β€¦.

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»

No Matter The Situation

Even The Worst Ones Don’t Last


Hello World,

The old saying that when it rains it pours when your going through tough situations.. is very very true… 

Some you’ll go through easily, some will knock the life out of you 😱

Yet there is no situation, no matter how big or how small… That can keep you down forever, you just have to keep going and stand tall β€πŸ™β€

The past two months has been a roller coaster ride for sure, between getting the bus.. Excitement… To the 2 yr anniversary of my son passing… Devestating… Starting the conversion on the bus… Fun… Then the loss of my second mom… Heartbreaking… To having to reset the date on my journey in the bus back a month… Setback.. 

I’m still standing… 

ALWAYS remember that life is full of setbacks… Just don’t let them get in your way.. we all fall down throughout our lives we just need to get up and keep moving… a little more every day 

Goodnight Universe ❀ 😘

Believe You Can

And You Will


Hello World

Yesterday was the first day I didn’t post at all in 6 months and although I felt off at different times and moments throughout the day for not posting, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to do so😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒

My best friend, my soulmate friend, my rock and sister that I’ve known for 40 yrs mother passed away and I didn’t know how to process it with all that I’ve been going through myself πŸ€”πŸ™„ 

So I decided to take a sabbatical, a day to just process my feelings, a day to allow myself to feel the loss of her mom, to cry and scream too..a day to just be me and allow it πŸ™„πŸ€”

It’s truly amazing what we can endure no matter what life throws at us and as long as we believe in ourselves there is nothing that can’t get through..

Never ever stop believing in the strength you have within, never ever stop knowing that you CAN endure and get through ANYTHING that life throws at you… You only have to believe

Forever and Always

My Baby You’ll Be

  • In loving memory of a life well lived and a legacy left behind β€πŸ™β€

  • “There is no end… We just go on a different journey!” Michael Robert Jones…

The book “I’ll Love You Forever” was always my children’s favorite book and I could never read the end without losing it… 

After Michael, as he said, went on a different journey, I thought about that book a lot and how it says…”I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be” and it made me think hard and that is when I changed it to my version… 

  • I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, FOREVER & ALWAYS MY BABY YOU’LL BE… 

Because there is only one thing constant in this life and that constant is love… LOVE NEVER DIES… 

Goodnight my friends much love and gratitude for and to you all!!!

Honoring A Life Well Lived

Am I ok today NO I’M NOT… Will I be okay… YES I WILL…. yet today I’m dedicating my words to my son… “To honor a life well lived and a legacy left behind!”

As he always said: “There is no end, we just go on a different journey!!” Michael R. Jones

I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, forever and always my baby you’ll be…I will always always love you Michael today, tomorrow and forever !!  I LOVE YOU & MISS YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH… Until We Meet Again… REST IN PARADISE MY LOVE β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€
