Life Really Is Amazing

When You Stop & Take The Time To See

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

Last night or actually sometime early this morning I woke up crying from a sound sleep with this poem in my head… It wasn’t a sad cry or a scared cry, it was just a slight teary cry ๐Ÿค”

It was still dark outside and I couldn’t get this poem out of my head, so I grabbed my notepad, wrote it down and fell back asleep ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

It wasn’t until after I made my coffee, sat down and went to read my morning motivation text that I remembered that I had written this poem down..

So I grabbed my notepad and read it ๐Ÿค”

I felt so calm reading this and I tried to remember if I had a dream but couldn’t remember if I did or not.. yet all I could think about was my son Michael and yet this time I didn’t cry ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’–

I’m not one that ever remembers my dreams yet I’m also one that never wakes up with a poem in my head and then takes the time to write it down half asleep yet this time I did and the more I think about it, the more I believe that it was my Michael, a sign of some sort reminding me to stop and remember the beauty and love we shared..

(yeah I’m crying now) ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ข..

I guess my point in all this is…

Life really is amazing when you stop and take the time to see…

That love is everywhere around us cause it comes from inside of you and me ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–…

Happiness Shows In Everything You Do

Cause It Comes From Inside Of You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

This morning I had to take the little boy I babysit to the school bus by 6:45am which I rarely do because his parents know I don’t like getting up that early and his dad usually does it, yet this morning when I picked him up he asked me something that totally threw me for a loop..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

He asked me why I’m always laughing & smiling ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

Now I haven’t ever been a morning person, at least I don’t think so lol and if you were to ask my kids what I was like in the mornings they would tell you to leave me alone until I had my coffee…

Yet this little boy saw something in me that I guess I don’t see in myself and it truly caught me off guard and all I could do was laugh ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜‚…

I can say that I am a very positive and optimistic person yet truly thought I was always a bitch in the mornings cause I like my mornings quiet..

At least until I have my coffee and my blood starts to circulate lol lol

Yet when I asked him why he thinks that he said cause he always sees me smiling and laughing even when I was hurting bad when my back went out ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

All I could do was smile and tell him that smiling and laughing just feels better then being yucky ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰…

My point in all this is..

Being happy really doesn’t come from outside of us…

When we are truly happy within ourselves it shows outside of us too… It shows in everything we say and it shows in everything we do…

So don’t look for happiness outside of yourself cause that’s not where happiness is…

Happiness comes from inside your heart, cause that’s where happiness lives ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€….

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

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 GRATEFUL๐Ÿ™

Love Always ๐Ÿ’—

Family Is Everything

Don’t Forget To Show You Care

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

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 ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

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 ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

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 much๐Ÿ˜ข

It made me think about how easily we forget to tell our family how much we love and appreciate them ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

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 belowโฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡

So my friends don’t forget your family cause they are always there… Tell them that you love them & show them that you care โค๐Ÿ’—โค

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

Remembering The Happy Times

Always Comes From Your Heart

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past week for me has been pretty crazy working on the outside of the bus and then of course the weather decided to take a turn and rain for 3 days (gotta love Florida.. NOT) which put a halt to what I’ve been doing ๐Ÿ˜ฉ and on top of that we had a beautiful full blue moon which never fails to heighten my emotions and bring up a lot of past memories some of which as you know are devestating for me ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

I, as you all know, truly believe there’s nothing wrong with looking back on your life and reflecting on how far you’ve come, to reminisce about the good times and to reflect on lessons learned and not learned yet, as long as you don’t get stuck there and allow your past to stop you from moving forward… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well I got a tad stuck in my past only seeing the sad, the hurt and pain and missing my son and my chica badly and last night something happened cause when I woke up this morning I felt so much love in my heart and was flooded with beautiful memories ๐Ÿ’—

Now I don’t know if it was a dream cause I rarely remember them or if it was the universe reminding me of all the happy times but it made me realize that in order to remember the happy times more than the sad we must look from our hearts….

We all have happy and sad times, the sad ones just stick out more… So when the hurt and sadness pops up use love to push it out the door….

Cause all the love you have within will always help you see… That’s there’s way more happy then sad times, so grab onto those memories ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—
