POSITIVE TIPS THAT CAN HELP MILITARY FAMILIES DURING A DEPLOYMENT………… 


 What do you do to pass the time when your service member deploys? I have found that starting new projects and surrounding myself with POSITIVE people is crucial to my own sanity.... It may not work for you, but it has worked in my own life...

 Deployments are a time when many military spouses break down…I think it should be just the opposite…. I believe that you you should use that time alone to work on yourself BOTH Spiritually and Mentally. Do not fall apart, INSTEAD you should get yourself together....



Some simple yet helpful tips that MIGHT just help you this deployment:



http://mycrazylifeasanavywife.blogspot.com/


*STAY CONNECTED IN EVERY WAY

* INVEST IN A GREAT COMPUTER WITH A WEB CAM. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SKYPE YET, THEN IT IS TIME TO GET IT! SEEING A REAL PICTURE OF HUBBY IS CRUCIAL FOR YOUNG KIDS AND IT ALLOWS YOU TO TALK TO YOUR SPOUSE IN REAL TIME



*DO NOT GET ANGRY WHEN YOUR MILITARY SPOUSE CAN NOT CONTACT YOU. STAY FLEXIBLE AND REMEMBER THAT BEING ACTIVE DUTY IN THE MILITARY IS NOT A 9 TO 5 JOB. THE HOURS MAY CHANGE AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT




*REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES THAT YOU SHARED TOGETHER AS A FAMILY AND DO NOT FOCUS ON ANYTHING THAT MAY BE NEGATIVE 

*FIND A SUPPORT GROUP IN YOUR AREA…OR START ONE YOURSELF

*WRITE LETTERS AND TELL YOUR HUSBAND/WIFE JUST HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU…IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER AND IT WILL SURELY BRIGHTEN THE DAY OF THE MILITARY MEMBER AWAY FROM THEIR FAMILY


ABOVE ALL…..CHERISH EVERY MOMENT YOU HAVE WITH YOUR SPOUSE


 I would love to hear what you have done in the past to get through a difficult deployment. Maybe by sharing your story here on the blog today we can help a first time military wife as she watches her hubby deploy for the first time.  

God Bless you all!

  3. Thanks for this blog post Lashon. It kind of answers the question I have been mulling ove during this deployment - 'What happens when you pray the prayers, follow the rules, get out of your comfort zone, challenge yourself, and the end result is just a fizzle?' This has been a hard deployment. thanks so much Lashon

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.
