I LOVE my mother-in-law because we APPRECIATE each other and RESPECT one Another




                                 I LOVE MY MOTHER-IN-LAW


Recently my mother-in-law came to Florida for a visit. She is the proud mother of 4 kids and my husband Patrick is her baby. Yes she has a 6'1 baby boy. (SMILE)
(Let me stop for a minute so that we can all say in unison AWW!



Our mother/daughter relationship has GROWN over the years. I am proud to say that we have worked extremely hard to get to where we are today. We are now Two people with a MUTUAL RESPECT for one another!



SO GRATEFUL THAT MY KIDS HAVE YOU AS A GRANDMOTHER......





As most of you know, I have been married to my husband Patrick for 21 years.
Through the years our mother/daughter relationship has not been PERFECT but there has been many PERFECT MOMENTS that I will treasure in my heart forever. 







                            I LOVE HER BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME






                                 SHE IS A GIFT FROM GOD

            



Being a writer and doing my blog, I receive a countless number of emails and letters from wives telling horror stories of their mother-in-laws. WOW! wish I could share them here, but they wanted to remain anonymous. I am thankful she raised such a wonderful son. I am here to tell you, Each relationship is unique and I understand that. But I truly believe that you get EXACTLY what you put into the relationship.







  
SHE RAISED A WONDERFUL SON







OK, So I am realistic and I understand that all mothers-in-laws are
NOT mean and hurtful. There are some really good ones out there like my own. She is are great story teller, card player and joke teller. Makes me smile just thinking about her. (SMILE)

I tell everyone I know that I have the best mother-in-law in the world. 



THIS IS MY MOTHER IN LAW MYRTRICE



She gives me cooking tips and cares for her grand-kids in such a loving way. Yes, people! It's possible to have a wonderful relationship with your mother-in-law. I feel so blessed by having a loving and nurturing Mother-in-law. She really is the best. 



MY SON PATRICK AND MY MOTHER-IN-LAW



We didn't start out this great, but over the years she realized when her son Patrick fell in love and married me, ALL THINGS CHANGED. She realized that she had to share him and his love with somebody else. That person is ME! I joke a lot but in reality, She is my husband’s mother and for that reason alone, deserves to be honored. You may not like your mother-in-law all the time and she may be over-bearing when it comes to you and your kids, BUT She still deserves to be honored. Respectful behavior is not optional according to the Word of God.



MY DAUGHTER LYRIC AND MY MOTHER-IN-LAW


I love my Mother in Law because she loves me. Not because she had any ulterior motive or agenda concerning me. She really, truly and completely loves me JUST FOR ME. She loves me, because I love her son Patrick and because I take care of her son Patrick.
MUTUAL LOVE.

  1. Today Instead of complaining about your mother-in-law, Why not thank her for giving you the greatest gift of all, her son, your husband. It's amazing how much better your relationship will become when you tell her how much you value her. God Bless

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!

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.
