ANOTHER PCS MOVE......TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO FLORIDA



As most of you know…I have decided to join my husband Master chief Campbell in Guantanamo Bay Cuba as he prepares for this final chapter of serving 20 years in the United States Navy….Its been really hard trying to manage two different households and still maintain a level of sanity while my husband has been so far away. In all my years active duty in the Navy and for all the years I have been a dedicated Navy wife to my husband, I have had no regrets.. Each stop along the way has made me the wife, the mother and the person that I am today.

Having each other every day is a blessing

So I have packed up my family, gave my beloved bird a new home and said goodbye to my comfortable house in Florida and brought my FAMILY TOGETHER AS ONE as we step together into the future…My love for my family has influenced how I feel and the way that I treat others around me. Anybody that REALLY KNOWS ME, understands there was no other choice......

I woke up this morning and I realized that I have never been happier in my life…Walking hand in hand on the beach with my husband, watching the sun rise and the sunset…
I love you Patrick

Watching my kids run around with their father and sitting down to a meal together are the things that matter the most to me…Thank you JESUS…

When I am with my family here in Cuba, I no longer spend my time picking up the phone to check a status, a email or a text message. I don’t run to answer the telephone because my focus is on spending this time with my family…..This is a different reality…I am so grateful that God has opened my eyes to see that everything I need, want, desire or long for is within my reach….

From this day forward, I will go back to the basics.. MIND BODY AND SOUL….I am very comfortable now being who I am meant to be and I want to thank all my friends who have encouraged me to take this journey. THANKS to all of my devoted friends who have held me close when I needed comfort and for all the people who have helped me to grow…..

I know people come into your life for a reason and not all of them will remain, but I have met some wonderful people in my travels around the world and here on face book.
These are special memories that will last a lifetime


So I say farewell Florida and HELLO to falling asleep in my husband’s arms and to waking up everyday to the sound of PEACE. I am so excited about having this peaceful journey with my family in Cuba.

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.
