Memories Last A Lifetime

Moments Turn Into Memories


Hello World,

Today a friend brought a few campers over too see the bus and he himself hasn’t seen it in a while either.. I showed them the before pictures and they were amazed at what I’ve done and said it’s inspiring them to do it too…. Now Not that I’m tooting my own horn (even though it did feel incredible coming from strangers) the feeling I had made me think about everything that has happened during this project… πŸ€”πŸ˜±πŸ™„πŸ˜‘πŸ˜’πŸ˜¨β€

The good, the AHHHH’s, the hell yes times and the oh shit times too… And yet each and every moment, good, bad and indifferent are moments that got me to where I am today and the feeling is amazing πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜…

I have been absolutely loving working on the bus and to see it coming all together is a feeling I really can’t explain πŸ€” πŸ™„. Although there have been quite a few wtf’s and doing things over cause of my picky butt lol when I look back at when I started till now I can actually say wow Ricci.. you’ve done good πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€— and that is an amazing feeling β€πŸ™β€

Don’t ever forget to pat yourself on the back for a job well done or any accomplishment. Embrace every moment in your life, cause no matter if they are good, bad or indifferent…. It’s every one of those moments that make for memories that last a lifetime and those moments and memories make up your life… 

Goodnight Universe ❀🌻❀

Make A To-BE-List

Take Charge Of How You Feel

Hello World,

This morning as I was making a little list of things I want to do… It made me stop a think a bit about how I want to feel too πŸ€”.

We tend to judge how we feel on the things that we have done… We forget to stop and appreciate where we’ve been and how far we’ve come πŸ™„πŸ™„….

So I decided to make a TO-BE-LIST and take charge of how I want to feel today.. Cause it truly is only up to me how I feel throughout my day… No one has control of how I think or how I react… Cause I’m the one that makes that choice and that my friends is a fact πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

……………..

Working on the countertop and having running water in the bus today and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help or share the link so I can make the goal of being in the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. πŸ€—β€πŸ€— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful β€πŸ™β€… Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ€—

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™

Nothing Blooms All Year Long

Don’t Expect That You Should Too


Hello World,

As I sit here in bed for the past two days sick and feeling like crap… A friend of mine brought me some pretty flowers and said get well fast and these are to brighten your day…. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

It made me think of the flowers and how they bloom, then wither away.. And year after year they come back and bloom again and are just as beautiful as before..🌻🌻🌻

Our lives are just like flowers and different chapters in our lives wither away too…. Just remember like flowers are beautiful and come back… No matter what you go through you will always come back and bloom too!!! ❀🌻❀🌻❀🌻❀

Goodnight Universe β€πŸ€—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»

When You Believe

You Do Achieve


BUS UPDATE 🚐🚐 🚐🚐 🚐

OK so I originally was going to remove the wheelchair ramp until today I figured out how to manually lock it into place and OMG I now have a back patio that has a 1500 pound weight limit that I can even stand in without my head touching the door when it’s open..WOO HOO so so excited… Yet that meant floor plan change again πŸ™„πŸ€” this makes the 3rd time I’ve changed it πŸ™„πŸ€”

Started painting the ramp white and it started looking way too much like a ambulance πŸš‘ so changed my mind again and am going to paint it blue tomorrow to match the inside walls and door 

So after I decided where I wanted the kitchen sink cabinet I moved it over into position and it got like a glove. Now mind you I now have to remove the chair I was gonna keep but that’s all good cause it truly fits perfectly as you’ll see.. tomorrow the rest of the chairs come out, the cabinet gets secured and the sink and countertop is getting done πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ I’m so excited I’m going to pop… And that’s what made me think of this poem tonightπŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ˜

Don’t ever ever ever give up on your dreams cause when you believe they become easy to achieve ❀

Still need help with a couple things I need to complete it so 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 β€œRead More” to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light
