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 😩 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 😩

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… πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ’—

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 πŸ’—πŸ™

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

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»

Honoring A Life Well Lived

And A Legacy Left Behind

Hello World,

Today marks 2 yrs since my son went on a different journey and although he is no longer with me physically and I miss him so so so very much, he will be in my heart and soul forever. ❀

We all go through difficulties and losses throughout our lives yet this is the hardest journey I’ve even been on and I truly agree that no child should ever go away before a parent because they truly take a huge part of you with them…. 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€

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™

To See How Far You’ve Come


Hello World,

Isn’t it funny how day by day we look at our lives and feel like things haven’t changed? πŸ€”

Yet when we look back at our whole life everything has been rearranged πŸ™„πŸ€”

Self-reflection is important to do cause it shows you how far you’ve come… When we look back it’s then we will see all the things we have done…πŸ™„πŸ˜±

Remember that we learn by reflecting on the progress we’ve made so far and when you look back you will see that everything you’ve done has made you who you are!! πŸ˜€

There are a few items I need to get so I can complete the bus and make it livable.. If anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt or higher inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•

Create MomentsΒ 

Moments Create Memories

Hello World,

Growing up we are lead to believe that the more things we have the better our life will be. The biggest house, the nicest car or cars, the best schools and jobs. Yet what happened to having a great family, great friends, great happiness.

I’ve had the house, the cars, the things. I went to great schools and had great jobs. Yet when I look back all the “things” I’ve had, lost and still have, and think about what made me truly happy within… I always go to memories. Memories of fun times, laughs, cries, good times and bad and not any of all the great memories I have involve “things!”

When I look at my Bachelor’s Degree, the actual piece of paper isn’t what I see… I see all the memories I made while getting that piece of paper. Yet if that piece of paper burned to ashes… Does that mean I know longer have a degree, do my memories burn away too? 

No they don’t… 

That piece of paper can be replaced. A house, a car, a job… All can be replaced… 

What can’t be replaced are MOMENTS… Moments with friends, with family, with lovers. With anyone or anything that we’ve had a moment with. It doesn’t matter if it’s a good, bad, happy, angry or sad moment… Once that moment’s past we can’t replace it. 

The first laugh from a baby, it’s first step. The feeling you had getting your first ever car… The feeling you had after you passed getting your drivers license. The prom, your graduation… So many special beautiful moments… 

It’s the feelings you get that you remember, feelings you’ll never forget and those feelings are moments that turn into memories…

Start creating moments not things cause things don’t last forever and moments turn into memories and memories last a lifetime and beyond ❀❀❀

πŸ’«Goodnight UniverseπŸ’«
