RENEWAL CEREMONY IN GUANTANAMO BAY CUBA.......

THE CAMPBELL FAMILY IN CUBA


RECENTLY MY HUSBAND PATRICK AND I RENEWED OUR WEDDING VOWS....WE HAD A BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP HERE AT GTMO AND DECIDED THAT THIS WAS THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS THE LOVE WE HAVE FOR EACH OTHER.


WE WERE SURROUNDED BY OUR FRIENDS AND SO MUCH LOVE.








MY WEDDING VOWS 5/56/2012:


MY DEAREST PATRICK: When I first met you 20 years ago Patrick, I never imagined the journey we would take as man and wife. I never knew there would be so many COMPLICATED layers to being married... I never experienced this level of love until the day I married you Patrick... Our relationship has been far from perfect…And I know that we both have strong heads on our shoulder....But through all these years we have continuously put GOD first in our marriage. I remember the first time I laid eyes on you, the first date, the birth of our 3 children, joining church together and living this "AMERICAN DREAM"..... One thing I do know is that GOD must have a sense of humor. Look at us, living this Navy adventure, two imperfect people….A girl from the west side of Chicago who loves Southern cooking marries a Chef from Durham North Carolina..(SMILE)


We’re complementary.... I wouldn’t trade any of the last TWENTY years for anything Patrick. I am so proud to call you my husband. There is no other person who knows me so well, and no other person I’d rather walk this life with... than you. THANK YOU so much for loving me, thank you for believing in me and thank you for always seeing the very best in me. I FEEL SO FREE with you Patrick, and I have never been happier as I am RIGHT NOW TODAY as your wife. Thank you for standing beside me through these past 20 years... Thank you for leading our family under the COVERING OF GOD...And through all our ups and downs we have continued to stick together and support each other. This has been an AMAZING journey with our share of ups and downs... We have traveled the world, we have had children, we have lost a parent, we have laughed, cried and through it all we have done it TOGETHER
as a team....


 
Loving one another, laughing and maintaining our FAITH IN GOD has made these THE BEST 20 years of my life...So my dearest husband, as we celebrate today and look to our future together, let’s continue to focus on loving each other every minute of the day, HEART AND SOUL...








I LOVE YOU  PATRICK

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.

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.

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!

MY CRAZY LIFE BLOG 2018
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.
