Gratitude Is Everything

So Be Grateful For All You’ve Got

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ€—

Every morning when I open my eyes the first thing I do is look out the window to see what the weather is like, I look up to the sky, say thank you, say good morning to my fur babies and go about my daily routine πŸ˜‰

It’s something I’ve always done and a few weeks ago when I started growing the herbs for the bus, I added saying good morning, misting and watering them to my morning routine so I wouldn’t forget to do it … πŸ€—

The weather was never one that bothered me or made my day yucky cause that’s something I definitely don’t have control of plus I love the rain (it doesn’t show where I live but I always liked it too)

This morning after doing my daily routine I felt an almost overwhelming feeling of gratitude and I couldn’t help but think about all the things I am truly grateful forπŸ€”

I thought about how grateful we all should be as soon as we open our eyes in the morning β€οΈπŸ™β€οΈ

Now I’m not by any means religious yet I do believe in a power greater than myself.

For some that may be God and for some that may mean the universe as a whole..

Yet for me I do believe in the power of positivity and the power of gratitude…

When we are positive we are surrounded by positivity and when we are truly grateful we tend to receive more to be grateful for…

It’s the law of attraction which I do fully believe in πŸ€—β€οΈπŸ€—
So my friend remember that every day is a blessing, it’s a gift that’s been given to you… Always be grateful for what you have… Be grateful for another new day too! πŸ€—πŸ€—

Happy First Day Of Spring 🌸❀

Beauty Isn’t Just Outside

It’s Also Inside Of You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

This morning I woke up really early and couldn’t fall back asleep. It was still dark outside, and because of the panels I made for the windows in the bus, it was really dark inside the bus too….

I sat in my bed debating on if I wanted to get up or if I should try and go back to sleep.. everything was so quiet…

So I sat there listening to the silence for a minute and then…

BAM πŸ’₯

I heard the most beautiful birdsong I’ve ever heard…πŸ•Š 🐦

It actually made me tear up πŸ’—πŸ˜

It made me think of how much we miss seeing and hearing because we are always on the go…

Rarely taking the time to stop and just listen to all that is around us and it also reminded me that when we use all of our senses there’s so much more we can appreciate…

A bigger world truly opens up to us in many ways 😍

My point in this is…

Don’t just look at the world through your eyes…

Smell it, hear it, taste it, touch it and use all of the senses in you… Cause all the beauty within our world is outside & inside of you too πŸ’—πŸ™

Take time to listen to the silence today…

The music you’ll hear is amazing πŸ’—

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

Don’t Listen To That Negative Voice

That Sits Up In Your Head

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past weekend it literally rained non stop which of course prevented me from doing a few things I need to get done on the outside of the bus and also gave me way too much time in my head thinking about things I could change or things I could’ve done better πŸ€” πŸ™„πŸ˜«

We all have that little critic in our head that tries to tell us we’re not good enough or that things that we do aren’t right and it can be very strong at times and can put up a hell of a fight…

Yet this past weekend I actually caught that little devil trying to fill my head with doubts and so instead of letting it win I turned it around by looking at what the bus looked like when I got it and what it looks like today and WOW what a difference (SEE BELOW ➑ BEFORE & AFTER PIC)

So my friends…

Don’t ever let that negative critic tell you what to do… Cause more than half the time it’s wrong and says things that are not true… Practice staying positive no matter what you do… Cause positivity always pushes negativity away from you!! πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

Stay positive world πŸ’—

Happy Birthday Brandon

A Mom’s Love

Hello World  

I dedicate this beautiful day to my oldest son….. 

There truly are no words to express the love a mother has for her children… We carry them for 9 months, we nurture them and watch them grow… And although we try to do what’s best for them.. We truly never know how they will turn out… Cause There is no book or perfect plan… On how to teach your son to be a man… 

I’ve made mistakes as we all do… Yet to see you all grown up, to see how you’ve grown up from that silly little boy to a man I am so very proud of… Fills my heart …

Happy Birthday Brandon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I sometimes wish that you were still small & not yet big and strong and tall..

For when I look at yesterday..

I close my eyes and see you play..

I often miss that little boy..

Who pestered me to buy a toy..

Who filled my life with pure delight..

From early morn to late at night…

I’ve watched you change…

I’ve watched you grow…

As seasons come & quickly go…

Now you’re all grown up and proud I am…

You’ve grown up and become 

One hell of a man!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Birthday Brandon 

I’ll love you forever

I’ll like you for always

Forever & Always

My baby you’ll be πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—

That Moment Of Clarity

When You Realize The Possibilities Are Endless


Hello World,

Today I decided to jump through a huge fear I’ve always had and make the legs for my bed in the bus and although I’ve used a saw many times before, I had never used an electric skill saw when I built things in the past because I’ve seen way too many scary movies in my 57 yrs and so I always had others or the lumber store cut the wood into the size I needed… You can laugh now πŸ˜‚ I am πŸ˜‚

Needless to say…I DID IT WOO HOO ❀😁


After I cut all 6 of them, I secured them to the box spring and gave them their first coat of a moisture and waterproof primer and talk about an intense moment of clarity… And that’s why I wrote this tonight πŸ€—


No matter what the fear is.. no matter how big or how small… When you accomplish something you were afraid to do and you get that moment of clarity… you realize that the possibilities in your life are endless and there really isn’t anything you can’t do!!!❀😁

Don’t allow fear to stop you from moving forward, don’t let fear stop you from believing you CAN do whatever you set your mind to… Always believe you can and YOU ALWAYS WILL! Sweet dreams my friends ❀

I’m down to 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.

Things We Can and Can’t Control

Don’t Let Them Get In Your Way


Hello World,

We tend to stress and worry over things we can’t control or change… Yet stress and worry doesn’t fix anything it only gets in our way…. I taught my kids to think like this and I really try to too… Yet sometimes stress and worry is the first thing that we do…πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„

Think about the things you do and what you CAN control and change… Sometimes it’s just a little thing that needs to be rearranged.

So don’t let life’s situations stop you and get in your way… Do the things you can do to change things and go out and have a beautiful day!!!!πŸŒ»πŸ€—

I’m so close to bringing the bus home.. and making my dreams come true .. thank you all for helping and for all you do. The link is in my bio so please help me if you can or share the link so that I can go and continue on with my plans. To spread my son’s ashes at the places he wanted to see, to continue on this journey of healing and to honor him and me. Thank you thank you thank you ALL πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•
