I FORGOT TO TELL YOU I MARRIED A WORKAHOLIC

MY CRAZY LIFE BLOG


MY CRAZY LIFE BLOG
BY LASHON CAMPBELL



I met and married my husband so many years ago that sometimes I forget the actual numbers...REALLY! We have been together for over 20 years and its been quite a ride loving a man so dedicated to the Navy... I remember when I first met him I wondered if he was really interested in me at all... 

I waited forever to go out on a date with my Prince Charming.


My husband Patrick is what some would call a workaholic. He is always working........

I mean every time I looked around there was something he had to do for work.



At the very beginning of our relationship I saw wonderful hints of how dedicated he was to his job. 




Back then I had never seen a Navy uniform pressed that way.


Back then I never saw a pair of Navy issue boots shine so brightly. I know that these were small things, yet significant indications that the man I would later marry was dedicated to his job.




We all want to spend more time with our husbands and this means to balance work and family so that neither one is neglected. My husband has figured out a way to spend time with us and yet still go to work and give it everything hes got. Day in and day out Master Chief Campbell maintains a high level of  professionalism that still to this day
MAKES ME PROUD TO BE HIS WIFE. 

EVEN AT HOME HE STILL HAS TO WORK

Now I don't complain when he says he has to work late..I simply jump in and do whatever he needs me to do in order to maintain our household.
I THANK GOD FOR MY HUSBAND.....He works hard for us and works just as hard serving his country.

I LOVE YOU CMC CAMPBELL

  3. Great men do great things. One of the things they do is lead their family and provide not only financially but spiritually and emotionally as well. This sounds like a case of just that. This is such a blessing from God t havea life partner so committed to his work as a Navy man and also as a father to his children and a husband to you Lashon. This blog has taught me a lot about some things I can do as a military wife to improve our marriage. Each relationship is different but the love of God is universal in every household. Thanks for all of the wonderful advice and the stories I really enjoy everything here.

Though promotions are really a great way to bring more readers to your blog, It just is not something I will encorporate here. I hope I answered your question for you. Have a blessed Day...

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…

PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

Most of us are struggling to pay the mortgage... Most of us are struggling to pay our children's tuition. We work hard and yet we are constantly coming up short.....
I submit to you today that all of that can change through the power of prayer and a positive attitude. I personally believe that prayer has changed the circumstances in our home.




I believe that communication, prayer and honesty within a marriage, is key to maintaining financial freedom.












Secrets tend to destroy a relationship.








So sit down today with your spouse and openly discuss all financial matters in your house. When you pray talk to God about your finances.




Here is a prayer that we use in our home.


Hope this can help to strengthen your family and enable you to be at peace concerning your finances:




PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH




Father God, you are the source of all my sustenance. So I come to you today in prayer and I pray for you toHEAR ME AND GUIDE MEin your infinite wisdom.

My spirit is full, but my wallet is always…

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…

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 …

A PROUD wife reflects on the MASTER CHIEF PINNING CEREMONY OF her husband CMC PATRICK CAMPBELL

Originally posted May 4, 2011



Congratulations to my husband Patrick Campbell who has just been promoted to E-9 a Master Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy.

 No words can express the love and admiration that I feel for him right now. I remember back in 2005 when I pinned his Chief anchors on, It was a special time for us as a family..….. When he was promoted to Senior Chief I cried as I thought of his career and his spiritual victories. Now in 2011, my heart beats a different beat as I will soon see my husband receive his new anchors for Master Chief.


                                  THE BEAUTIFUL CAKE


Over the years I have watched him slowly preparing for this day. The long hours and dedication has lead him into this promotion. I know that becoming a Master chief is only the beginning and this promotion will only bring out a new fire that I have seen so many times in the past…He craves it and silently he enjoys the challenge.

THAT'S MY HUSBAND THE NEW MASTER CHIEF
