That Make Or Break Your Day
🤗 BUS UPDATE 🤗
First and foremost I want to say thank you to all that sent love and support for me on my sons birthday. It is still a very difficult time for me and you all helped get me through a difficult day and I am forever grateful to you all 🤗🤗🤗 🙏🙏🙏💗💗💗
I spent the day crying and laughing working on the bus and focused on what Michael would have been doing and today while getting frustrated over the little things this poem popped into my head🙄 Go figure huh ..Needless to say I changed my mindset, tackled some little things and before I stopped I actually remembered to take some photos for YOU 😀😄😀.
The foam flooring my daughter bought me is in (except for one piece in front of the fridge that’s driving me insane) The extension of the countertop is complete and now encloses the fridge (that’s where the white sheer curtain is hanging) I took that lazyboy recliner out because it was too big and I have a surprise for you next week… That space is now where my two doggie beds are and they love it. I put a six and a half foot shelf up above the counter and sink that I still have to put a lip on so stuff doesn’t slide off and I still have to paint/seal the wood on both the countertop and shelf.. I took out the boxspring of the bed and my son made me a platform for the mattress so now I have 18 inches of storage under the bed. I have to hook up the water and faucet and the inverter and solar system which will all be done next week along with the really cool surprise for you that I am so excited about.. 😄🙃. I still have a bunch to do yet omg I’m loving it and of course I keep changing my mind on stuff like the window privacy panels third times a charm🙄 still need more color cause it’s so blue and yellow (Michael’s favorite colors) yet I gotta brighten it up cause I LOVE colors 💗
So my friends here’s some pics because if it wasn’t for all of you, all of your love, support, donations and belief in me I would not be where I am and I know without a doubt that Michael is smiling at us all!!! WOO HOO MY FRIENDS IT’S HAPPENING… Much love to you all and thank you thank you thank you.. I AM GRATEFUL
Everyone and Everything Is Unique
Yesterday when I was walking in the rain, the smell, the sounds, the feeling of the rain on my skin made me feel refreshed and centered…. 🌻🌧🌻…
I rarely take an umbrella cause I love the way the rain feels, It’s cleansing and refreshing and also helps things heal🌧🌻.
The different types of flowers, the different types of trees… The sounds of the rain falling on the river, the sounds of the birds and the bees… All made me see how different and unique this beautiful world of ours is…. 🌻🌎
So don’t strive for perfection, cause perfection can’t be found… Just take a walk in nature and you’ll see that beauty is all around 🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻
Have a beYOUtiful day world 🌻🌍
We’re Here To See Each Other Through
Good evening my friends 🤗🌻
With all the devastation between Hurricane Harvey, Irma and the possibility of Jose… It made me think about how important it is for us all to be here for each other 🤔🙏🤔.
Some things we can’t control like Mother Nature… Some things we can like offering a helping hand… It’s not something we have to do yet it’s definitely something we all should do… 🤗🙏🤗🙏🤗🙏🤗.
Kindness doesn’t cost a thing and it can truly change someone life… We aren’t invisible yet so many turn their heads when they see someone less fortunate or not “like”they are… 🤔🙄🤔.
We aren’t here to be better than or to see through each other… We are here to see each other through.. cause when it comes down to it that’s what we’re here to do… We ARE one!!!
Goodnight night universe, Goodnight my friends 🤗🌻
Cause Panicking Can Get You And Others Hurt
The last couple of days have been crazy with everyone watching hurricane Irma and although I too live in Florida I’m no where near it’s projected path.. Like I’m seriously 400+miles away from it’s path..
Yet today I went into town to the grocery store and the frenzied panic in the store made me leave and not get what I went there for. The look of fear and panic on everyone’s face made me realize how crazy people get and how they panic rather than calming down and focusing on what needs to get done 🙄🤔🙄..
When people panic, people get hurt and that’s scarier than the storm…We can’t control mother nature, yet we can control ourselves.. please stay calm and focus on what you need to do so you don’t hurt someone else….🙄🤔🙄🤔
I know this storm is scary yet we all now what we need to do… So take a deep breath and please be calm so you don’t hurt yourself and others too!!!🙏❤🙏
As for me I’m working in the bus and sticking to my goal… The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful.😀❤🤗
I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times 🤗 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.
My goal date to embark on my journey is my son’s birthday October 4th and I’m so close, it’s right around the corner and I’m so excited to begin ❤🤗❤
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍🌻
Since I’ve been here in New Jersey seeing old friends and family… I’ve had a wealth of different emotions going on… Flashbacks from my childhood, my teenage years and more… Then it hit me… 😱 🙄
All our lives we rush rush rush… We rush to become a teenager, we rush to get out of high school, we rush to graduate collage, we rush to find a career, we rush to have a family, then we rush to retire, we think about all the things we wanted to do and wonder where the time went and why we never did things we wanted to do as a child… 🤔🙄🤔..
Do the things you want to do and take your time to do it… So when you look back on your life you can smile cause you made it through it… 🤗😁🤗
Time is very precious and it goes by really fast…. So take the time to slow yourself down and make every moment last…🤗❤🤗
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗
Except It, Embrace It and Live It Fully
Live today to the fullest, appreciate all this day has to offer… Embrace the good, Respect the difficulties and know that this day too will pass…
No matter what today brings, no matter what goes on… Know that all you have is right now… right now is where you belong! 🤗❤
Have a beautiful day my friends…
Life is to short not too 🤗🌻

Even The Worst Ones Don’t Last
The old saying that when it rains it pours when your going through tough situations.. is very very true…
Some you’ll go through easily, some will knock the life out of you 😱
Yet there is no situation, no matter how big or how small… That can keep you down forever, you just have to keep going and stand tall ❤🙏❤
The past two months has been a roller coaster ride for sure, between getting the bus.. Excitement… To the 2 yr anniversary of my son passing… Devestating… Starting the conversion on the bus… Fun… Then the loss of my second mom… Heartbreaking… To having to reset the date on my journey in the bus back a month… Setback..
I’m still standing…
ALWAYS remember that life is full of setbacks… Just don’t let them get in your way.. we all fall down throughout our lives we just need to get up and keep moving… a little more every day
Goodnight Universe ❤ 😘
