Living In California Is My Lifestyle

Walk of Life and So Many Paths..1970-2014

Hello everyone and Welcome!

This is just a bit about me (Shellie ) and I am sure most of you can relate to what I have to say. Life really has it’s ups and downs. I have spent all  my life here in California moving around From San Fernando Valley, Valencia, Palm Dale, Long Beach, Anaheim, Norco, Desert Hot Springs! Loved everywhere I lived here. ♥  I stayed home to look after my two kids, whom I loved and dedicated my time and life to so they would be well rounded, and I felt they where in a safer environment. With me being there for them. I did work for a glass factory for 7 years until I had to quit due to no one to watch Joanna. So I didn’t work much after my first divorce of marriage after 10 years.  Child support was not enough to take care of us.

And I really had no work skills at that time. Was a homemaker and a mom, crafting was my hobby . So I did go for a class for floral design and then tried finding work again. But it was a hard position to get started into.

   I wish I could have been in that field of work, I loved working with flowers, and I am a art major from high school. I LOVE TO CRAFT ~ FLORAL DESIGN. So some crafts were things I did also. I make things and sold them out on the side walk in front of my apartment. I did what ever I could to be there for my son, Johnnie, and my daughter, Joanna.
 Later after my kids left home and got married and had children of there own, making me a grandmother! ♥ This was very special time in my life!  As time went on, I was called to come out to help my Step Dad he was not doing well and needed me to take over and take care of my Mom. He was so sick he ended up in the hospital, and died a week later, from cirrhosis of the liver and congestive heat disease. My mom was disabled and in her 74’s with macular degeneration (blindness), I took care of her for two years and she passing away from her badder cancer and lung cancer. I did all I could to make her comfortable. I had hospice for her but I did most the work, take full care of her. It was hard but I was there for her as much as I could be.

 It was heart breaking to lose them both, I lost my real Father when I was around 25 he died of leukemia. I was torn about that for many years! I was very close to my dad!  God rest all there souls! Lost my Nana to so all my family is gone, but gone to a better place. Miss and love you all!

Well any way I inheritance my mom and step dads mobile home in Desert Hot Springs California 2001, I was in my early 50’s and am now married 2004 to a very special guy that I fell deeply in love with, Jeremy. He has been very good to me.  He is Australian, and we met over a online game.  I knew him 2 years before he came here to the US and we got married. So much LOVE here and such soul mates are we.

   So right now we are working very hard to find work from home on the internet. So many scams out there though. We have had the toughest 5 years tiring to keep the home and the bills paid. I fell off a ladder a year ago and hurt my back and knee badly. Jeremy nursed me, took care of me and got me literally walking again after 3 months. No money or health insurance so I didn’t go to the hospital. No need for another unwanted bill 😉  Tried to get on disability and was denied. So it’s been one heck of a roller coaster ride. But we have faith and we stay positive!
We anyway that’s about how its been in a shorten version of my life. But It’s  all in Gods hands now, maybe just maybe a miracle will happen or we will be blessed, with a better Lifestyle and Health & Wealth ! Praying hope you will to. I know I have learned from my mistakes in life. So now it’s time to use what I learned and move forward in a better life for me and my husband 😉


May all your blessings be wealth, happiness and health! God Bless and have faith in life. Be positive!   I do! xoxoxoxo

Johnnie is now 37 and Joanna 43.

Hugs..Shellie 63

 Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass. — Daniell Koepke
