WHAT VETERAN'S DAY MEANS TO ME...


I FLY THE FLAG BECAUSE I LOVE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. I SALUTE THOSE THAT ARE SERVING UNDER OUR FLAG TODAY AND I SALUTE ALL THOSE WHO HAVE DIED WHO WILL BE REMEMBERED UNDER OUR FLAG........ EVERY DAY I WATCH THE NEWS AS ANOTHER SERVICE MEMBER IS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY. WATCHING THESE IMAGES DAILY REQUIRED ME TO PAUSE AND REFLECT AGAIN ABOUT ALL MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WHO SACRIFICE SO THAT YOU AND I CAN ENJOY OUR FREEDOM....OUR MEN AND WOMEN OF THE MILITARY WAKE UP EVERY MORNING WITH THE DESIRE TO SERVE OUR COUNTRY.


LETS REMEMBER ALL OUR MILITARY TODAY ON VETERAN'S DAY.



EACH SOLDIER IS STRONG AND DETERMINED TO PROTECT THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY THAT YOU AND I LIVE IN. I AM SO PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN TODAY. I AM SO PROUD TO BE THE WIFE OF A 20 YEAR ACTIVE DUTY NAVY MAN. AND I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT I AM A UNITED STATES NAVY VETERAN.






I START MY DAY WITH THE SAME PRAYER FOR OUR SERVICE MEMBERS. I KEEP THEM ALL IN MY PRAYERS BECAUSE I NEVER TAKE FOR GRANTED THE FREEDOMS I ENJOY HERE DAILY. SO LET'S GIVE THANKS TODAY TO ALL OF THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN
OF OUR MILITARY. YOU CAN START BY KEEPING THEM IN YOUR PRAYERS EVERYDAY...LET'S BRING THEM HOME SAFE.....









SO TODAY I WILL LAUGH AS I REFLECT ON MY MEMORIES OF SERVING IN THE UNITED STATES NAVY, I WILL ALSO CRY FOR THOSE THAT HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES.......BUT I WILL ALSO CELEBRATE TODAY EACH AND EVERY SERVICE MEMBER THAT IS STILL SERVING.





SO TODAY AS YOU GO ABOUT YOUR DAY REACH OUT AND SHAKE A VETERAN'S HAND AND JUST SAY THANK YOU.


LETS REMEMBER THEM IN OUR HEARTS 



*****MY PRAYER*****


HEAVENLY FATHER I THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER DAY HERE IN THE STATES WITH MY FAMILY. I THANK YOU FOR KEEPING MY FAMILY SAFE. I THANK YOU FOR WATCHING OVER AND PROTECTING ALL OF THE SOLDIERS WHO ARE SERVING THIS COUNTRY THIS MORNING. KEEP THEM SAFE AS THEY HEAD INTO HARM'S WAY THIS MORNING.




LORD I GIVE YOU ALL THE GLORY PLEASE CONTINUE TO PROTECT ALL BRANCHES OF OUR MILITARY BOTH DAY AND NIGHT. I ALSO PRAY THAT YOU WILL REVEAL YOURSELF TO EACH ONE OF THEM IN YOUR OWN SPECIAL WAY. I PRAY THAT YOU WILL SUSTAIN THE SOLDIERS AND KEEP THEM SPIRITUALLY STRONG. MAY YOUR GRACE SURROUND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM TODAY AND ALWAYS.

FATHER I PRAY THAT PEACE WILL ONE DAY COME, BUT UNTIL THAT DAY COMES I PRAY THAT YOU GIVE GUIDANCE 2 ALL OF THE LEADERS IN OUR COUNTRY SO THAT WISE DECISIONS WILL BE MADE TODAY. THESE SOLDIERS ARE SOMEONES MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER AND THEY ARE ALL YOUR CHILDREN SO I PLACE MY CONFIDENCE IN YOU TODAY AND ALWAYS. I ASK THIS IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

    Lashon, I went to meet my husband today for lunch at my favorite little place by the water. It was beautiful..He walked in all handsome in his uniform. I never felt so much pride as I did seeing him in that uniform. Whe nhe walked in I felt the pride of loving a man that has sacrificed for his family. Happy Veteran's Day Lashon to you and your husband.

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

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.
