Rest In Paradise Chica

You’ll Forever Be In My Heart


Hello World πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—

It truly is amazing how we feel about our pets… 

They aren’t just an animal that lives with us, they truly become a family member and a huge part of your heart!

Last night I lost my best friend.. 

My little Chica 😒 she was 16 years old (112 in human years) lived a great life and enhanced mine immensely… 

I got her when she was 2 yrs old and she literally went everywhere with me.. my little ride and die partner and losing her truly feels like I lost my best friend, my baby 😒

So today I’m dedicating my post to my baby and to all those who have lost theirs.

The unconditional love we receive from them is unparalleled and they deserve just as much acknowledgement, if not more!!!

Rest in Paradise little Chica, I love you more than words can say… You will be missed so very much… Yet in my heart you’ll always stay!!! πŸ’—πŸ˜’

I Am A Grieving Mother

Happy Birthday Michael


Hello World, 

I dedicate today to my son who’s in the sky above… To let him know I miss him and I’m sending him birthday love… πŸ’—πŸ’—..

I am a grieving mother… 

I am the same yet I am different…. 

I am here, yet a part of me is gone forever..

I stand in the sunlight… 

Yet I walk in the shadows of what was… 

&

Cannot ever be …. 

Until we meet again my son…. 

For all eternity πŸ™πŸ’—πŸ™

Happy Birthday Michael 

I Love You forever & beyond

Mom ❀

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€¦.

Take A Deep Breath Or Two

It Really Helps Calm You Down too


Hello World,

I love the smell of lavender it’s such a soothing scent… Yet taking deep breaths are soothing too especially when your emotions are spent…😒❀😒

We all know this is a hard weekend for me yet with all of your love and support it gets easier a little each day… So I just wanted to say thank you my friends and send a reminder your way…😘🌻

We all go through different emotions, some happy and some very sad… Take a deep breath or two… And when you find yourself out of sync… Deep breathes will calm you down too…🌻❀🌻😘🌻❀

There are a few items I still need to get so I can complete the bus and make it livable.. If anyone knows where I can get a 2000 watt or higher inverter, a 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. 😘❀😘

There Really Are Earth Angels

They Are Your Real True Friends

Hello World,

Don’t ever take for granted the people that go out of their way to wipe away your tears and do whatever they can to help you get outta your head…. Today one of my friends did that out of the blue… How she knew I was having a very difficult day is beyond me yet there she was ready to wipe my tears and allow me to feel every emotion I was going through and i am beyond grateful. those are the people that are true Earth angels and don’t ever let them go!!! β€πŸ˜‡β€

Most of you know what I’m going through and that this is a very hard month for me… Yet after witnessing a beautiful morning of kindness, it made me miss my son even more… 

Michael was a beautiful Earth Angel and touched more hearts then I ever imagined… The 30th will be two years that he went on a different journey and as you know I’m not one to hide my feelings I’ve learned to embrace them and allow myself to feel… 

Yet as much as I’m trying to embrace the 30th and make it a day full of beautiful memories I’m having a really hard time and I just wanted you all to know I will not let you all go… 

Thank you for always being here, thank you for wiping my tears… Thank you for sharing your hearts with me, thanks for taking away my fears… 

I just needed to say thank you because you all mean the world to me.. thank you for being my Earth Angels and allowing me to simply be me… Much love to you all my friends… For you all I am truly grateful.. 

Much love from all of me to ask of you ❀

Goodnight Universe πŸ™πŸ˜‡πŸ™

Every Morning Is A Fresh Beginning

Life Begins Every Day So Live It & Live It Well

IMG_20170424_104038_504

Hello World,

Every morning opens the door to a brand new day. Brand new beginnings, new plans, new actions, new experiences and new lessons.

Don’t let yesterday’s worries ruin your today. Cause it doesn’t matter how old you are, it doesn’t matter if your successful, if you failed or if you’re just hanging on. Life begins the moment you wake up and start your day…

So start it with a positive thought, a big huge smile and know that whatever life throws at you, you can handle it.

So embrace the day cause life begins every morning so live it and live it well!

Grief Is Love

Without Anywhere To Go

Hello World,

They say that grief has many stages and the definition says it is a very deep sorrow, usually caused from a death… Yet although I believe in the stages, I believe grief is really just love.

A love so deep it causes a void, a void that’s hard to live with, a void that never gets filled. Yet even though I know in my heart and deep within my soul that my son is always with me… The hardest part isn’t saying Good-bye…. The hardest past is learning to live without him.

πŸ’« GoodnightπŸ’«Universe πŸ’«

😒 Ricci 😒

 PS… If possible please take a look at my campaign and sharing it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.
