A STORY ABOUT MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER LYRIC.....

ME AND MY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER LYRIC

COMBING MY DAUGHTER LYRICS HAIR HAS BECOME A LESSON OF LOVE
~ ORIGINALLY POSTED AUGUST 2011 ~

I Remember the day our little Lyric was born, She looked up at me and let out the loudest scream I have ever heard...WOW, I DID NOT KNOW she would still be screaming 15 years later. The very FIRST TIME I COMBED MY DAUGHTER'S HAIR I thought, this is going to be a breeze. I mean I use to comb my dolls hair, How hard could it really be? My daughter Lyric has very kinky thick hair. Little did I know with each passing year her hair would grow and develop into a life of its own.(smile)


Every morning I would use A spray bottle with water, then I would move on to the detangler, then I would start my daily workout of combing through her thick hair. I would always try to be as gentle as I possibly could...Then the screams.


Remember when I told you she screamed as a baby..Well, these were the kind of screams that made my heart ache.





 I hated seeing her in so much discomfort so I learned a way to incorporate combing her hair into our SPECIAL TIME TOGETHER. 

I made combing Lyrics hair, A LESSON OF LOVE.




Since getting her hair combed was such an emotional experience, I would use this time to get her to read. I would let her choose a book that she wanted to read and I would start on the very first page and try desperately to distract her from what was going on in her hair. In time she began to enjoy our READING ALOUD TIME and it eased her anxiety and made an absolutely trying time into a beautiful BONDING TIME for me and my daughter.


I am so proud of our daughter Lyric.


 She is now 15 years old and has now began to do her hair alone. Though I am sad that she no longer needs me to comb her beautiful hair, I am so moved by the fact that she LOVES TO READ. When I see her alone in her room reading a book, I get a little nostalgic as I remember our READING ALOUD TIME. To this day I still remember those days so vividly.

We all have children and each one is so very different in their own way. We have to approach each area of concern in a way that brings out the very best within them. I hope my story inspires you to share your own experiences here on my blog.



God Bless

God has blessed me with some WONDERFUL people in my life!

MY CRAZY LIFE BLOG
BY LASHON CAMPBELL




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.

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.

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
