                       ME AND MY SISTER JUANITA IN JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA 2009

I grew up in Chicago with my two older sisters. My oldest sister Wanda and my middle sister Juanita. Although I love both of my sisters, There has always been a close relationship between me and my sister Juanita. I can not remember a time in my life that I did not feel loved by her. She was and still is MY HERO. She has always been supportive of me and my decisions and I LOVE HER.

                          ME AND MY SISTER JUANITA JACKSONVILLE FLORIDA 2011

I often tell people that your personal testimony can one day save a life. My sister's personal testimony is one of faith and determination. Her life story is one that makes me KNOW that There is a God. She is PHENOMENAL..My sister is the single parent of five beautiful and creative children. The names of her children are:  ANDRE, KRYSTLE, KATRINA, ANTHONY AND JEFFREY.

Some people would give up and not move forward. Not my sister. She went back to school. She applied herself and studied hard...She GRADUATED and became a paralegal and then a loan officer for a major bank in Chicago...Through it all SHE NEVER GAVE UP and she always kept smiling and giving GOD THE GLORY.
You see, not all super heroes wear capes but MY SISTER IS MY HERO. She is beautiful inside and out. She is smart, courageous and one of the very best people I know. I love the person she was when I was growing up in Chicago, but I love the woman that she has become. God has touched her life and the blessings keep flowing. THIS IS NO ORDINARY WOMAN I am talking about..... I say with pride that I am your little sister and your EXAMPLE has been one that I have tried to follow.......
Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister Juanita who makes me believe that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND I LOVE YOU. God Bless.

    Its always fabulous to see strong beautiful women stepping up to the plate hitting home runs with Christ as their coach. Hats off to you Lady Juanita!
    Lashon you have been that for me on a many occasions out of the blue providing support and encouraging words at unexpected times and in creative way. That shows me the common strand that both you and Juanita share is a God who is More than Enough for any situation.

  4. My grandmother has been my greatest supporter

    She encouraged me to attend church, stay active, continue my education, be a giving person, have compassion for others. Be dedicated to family at all cost, pay the cost to be the boss, think with a leveled head and respect myself and others.

    She helped my widowed mother raise me, gave the down payment to my first car, sold me my first home for half the market value which gave me $100k in equity more than any of her kids will every inherit.

    I am the woman that I am because of Bessie W. Lane. Stronger, wiser and blessed to her and God in my life.

  11. Nice Story. through thick and thin we need to always be there for our family. Sisters Especially. We need to keep a close relationship. Still trying to work through some stuff with my own sister though. I am now at a loss of what to do to save the little relationship that we have. It is emotionally draining at times..Do you have any type of advie or suggestions that may help me..I will take any at this point.

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

God has blessed me with WONDERFUL friends 

Have you ever stopped for a moment and said a thank you to God for all the wonderful people that he has placed in your life. I truly believe that you should. At least remind yourself of these blessings as often as possible. God has really blessed me to know some WONDERFUL people in my life. 









One of the GREATEST joys I have encountered in my military travels has been relationships that I have developed with friends. Most of the people who are in my life are military wives and they are all awesome in their own way. They have each touched my life and made it better in such a fantastic way. I really do mean that. I have such great memories of them.









Friendships of any kind are a gift from God. Having a friend that understands you and loves you makes your heart feel so full and their love is simply incomparable in my mind. I spend a lot of time sharing with my friends and letting them know just how important they ar…

Happy First birthday to the BEST GRANDSON ever....

I NEVER KNEW HOW MUCH LOVE MY HEART WOULD HOLD, UNTIL I BECAME A GRANDMOTHER FOR THE FIRST TIME....

Our family has been BLESSED with a NEW grandson. His name is Cameron and he is the most beautiful baby in the world. He has a smile that melts your heart and a laugh that is contagious. The first time I laid eyes on him, I loved him. I never knew how much love my heart could hold before our grandson was born. 













We are about to celebrate his first birthday and we are excited about the AMAZING future for the newest member of the Campbell family. Look at that face....
I hold him in my arms and I remember when my own kids were small and full of wonder. Grand kids are such a blessing and I plan on spending as much time as I can spoiling this beautiful baby (Smile)






THIS WAS A PERFECT MOMENT IN TIME






We love our kids and we hold them close to our hearts, but these grand kids tug a little harder and they make you forget how to say no (Smile) Where is my brain today? Is that a good thing or am I just …

Ways to get some EXTRA CASH in your pockets

WE LOVE EXTRA CASH 


I always say that I am going to have a garage sale. OK so maybe you have heard that once before. (I am a bit of a procrastinator) When I look around the garage there are tons of stuff that I could probably sale. Recently, the kids and I donated quite a bit of that stuff to the Salvation Army. I felt really good about that.



CHARITY

The Salvation Army is one of my favorite charities and I figured the stuff was just sitting around gathering dust. Giving back makes me feel better and I am teaching my kids how to save, volunteer, give back and honor God all at the same time. The reality is, we all can use some EXTRA CASH and the stuff laying around your house could be priceless to someone. 








How much extra stuff do you have lying around the house that you never use? You could arrange the items and sell them at a Garage sale.







MAKE SOME MONEY

Before you know it, you can turn that extra stuff into cash. So today as you are going about your day, why no…

By growing my relationship with God and loving Him wholeheartedly, I have unintentionally grown to love myself as well!

I am finding my way back to the woman I always knew I was! My name is Lashon and I am a 48 year old divorced mother of three. I was married for half of my life.  I tell you my story today with no regrets, no shame only love and compassion. A few years ago I changed and through my journey I learned a lot of tough lessons about myself and my relationship.  From the outside my marriage looked perfect.  Well, it really wasn't. I was not aware that my marriage was over, dead and virtually stagnant.

With the help of a great psychologist, my church, my friends and through hard work I have changed. People change for many reasons but most are caused by two main events. The first reason that people change is by choice, their minds have opened and they simply want to evolve. They crave for something better. The second reason that people change is not by choice, their heart is broken so now what do you do? You have to accept change whether you want…

OK, So I Want to eat Oreo Cookies everyday. Well, maybe not everyday! I also want to stay in the BEST shape possible. Something isn’t adding up!

Hello and welcome back to my blog. So glad that you are able to stop by here and join me. Today I want to talk about having a simple exercise plan. Exercise is a very touchy subject when you get to my age.
I mean I wake up some mornings and this old body aches from head to toe. Can you relate? Although my pain is terrible sometimes, I am determined to keep this weight off. I am at a great size and I am finally moving around without getting out of breath. It really is no fun being sick and its no fun being in the hospital. that my friends is my absolute worst nightmare. So I am committed to exercising AT LEAST three times a week.
