PEACEFUL MORNINGS WATCHING THE SUN RISE


I recently moved to a beautiful place called Guantanamo Bay Cuba. I decided before even reporting here, that I would use the time here to bring our family closer together. I feel as though we were already close, but as the children are getting older, I find it harder to find activities that appeal to all of us. My husband is FINALLY on shore duty so that means this is uninterrupted FAMILY TIME......So no time here in Guantanamo will go in vain.....NO WAY!!! I plan on using every passing moment here doing family activities or at least activities which I feel might bring us closer together. (SMILE)
When we first got here, we all walked TOGETHER AS A FAMILY...Boy was that a big mistake. Four different people PLUS a dog. BIG MISTAKE.....Four different ideas of what WALKING truly entailed. It just did not work well for us. I took off one day alone trying to find a pace that was best suited for me. When I walked alone I realized...I LIKED IT. I liked walking alone. So family time together at Guantanamo Bay DOES NOT include walking together. (SMILE)



Almost every morning I take off with my IPHONE and I head out for a power walk. I walk because I found that it relaxes me and makes me feel closer to God.

WATCHING THE SUN RISE AT GTMO

Every morning as the sun begins to rise...I feel so peaceful. 

As I have embarked on my walking I have begun to realize that I have more patience throughout the day... The kids have noticed a change in their mother.... My youngest son Patrick says I smile more. I hope I smile more because I have never been happier.







As you begin your day, I want for you to
Take a moment to find out what brings a smile to your face.








Whether its walking, running , drawing or maybe even gardening. Whatever makes you feel calm, peaceful and closer to God... Listen to your heart this morning and find out what touches you the most...

  5. I am just sitting here looking at these beautiful photos. I am in disbelief. What a beautiful thing to witness. And to jsut think, you have the ability to see the sun rise on any given day...People should really slow down in their daily lives and take moretime to experience all of the beauty here that God has given to us....Thanks for sharing your story and these wonderful pictures.

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.
