SPRING BREAK at the CAMPBELL home is so much FUN

CAMPBELL FAMILY



                       SPRING BREAK 2014 AT THE CAMPELL'S


This spring break we are not traveling to an amusement park or going on a cruise. This year I simply want to spend time with my kids. I have 3 kids. They are 21, 16 and 14. My oldest son does not live here anymore so my focus is to spend as much time as I can with my two youngest kids. REALITY CHECK: This time next year I will have another one of my beloved children leave the house. My daughter Lyric will be graduating from high school and heading to college. (Did you see the sad face I just made.) I have decided to spend as much time as I can. Especially with her. My baby girl. 


CAMPBELL FAMILY



This mama is so excited about today. I am Looking forward to a fun morning with my daughter Lyric. We are going to get our hair done and then doing a little shopping. It is moments like this that makes me see why God wants me to appreciate all of the SMALL THINGS. Sometimes in the midst of all the chaos, its the small things that keep you moving. The small things that make you smile and the small things that bring you JOY! I tell you, This beautiful girl has helped me see things so clearly. Through my love for ALL three of my children, I have found a voice that I never knew I had. This is such a blessing.


CAMPBELL FAMILY



I promised myself that I would use this spring break time wisely. Today is Wednesday and today is all about me and my baby boy. My youngest child is Patrick. I decided to take my son Patrick to the music store. So happy!
PATRICK CAMPBELL, TRUMPET PLAYER
He loves music and I knew that he would enjoy looking at all of the instruments and seeing some of the new items they had in stock. I call this "QUALITY TIME" alone with my son. 



We also got his mouthpiece for his trumpet fixed and then had a nice lunch together. It gave us time to just talk without any interruptions. Just me and my baby. I know what you are thinking. I called him my baby. (Smile)
The truth is, He will always be my baby. He is 14 and I love him just as if it was the first day I saw him in the hospital. As the tears are welling up in my eyes, I sit here and thank God for the close relationship that has developed with me and my baby boy. He is such a blessing to me....

SPRING BREAK 2014

Its a new day and today the Campbell family is heading to the bowling alley. So incredibly excited about bowling. You would think that I won the lottery! I tell you, we are definitely a bowling family. WAIT, Did I tell you I am lousy at bowling? Besides the obvious limitations that I possess, We are and always will be a BOWLING FAMILY. Yes, we each try to play the best we can. The overall champion in the family is my daughter Lyric! 

We had the usual excitement at the bowling alley. Lots of fun, laughing and talking, but today was different. We had a blast BUT, We were really missing my husband Patrick today. He is in the Navy and is currently deployed. We love to see him bowl. My husband Patrick is the head of this family but he is also our comic relief. (Smile) Being a navy wife is a great thing. Its those days when my kids miss my husband that are the hardest for me as their mother. Prayer is what brings us air in times when we feel as if we can not breathe. All in all, spring break was awesome. So now we are at the end of our spring break week and I want to make a nice meal for us and enjoy our weekend together. 



CAMPBELL FAMILY



                                      FAMILY IS ALL THAT MATTERS



CAMPBELL FAMILY


I decided to cook baked chicken breast, carrots, salad and brown rice. A great meal for us to enjoy. We laughed and we had a great time talking about everything AND nothing. (That is the best way that I can describe this week) Hard to put into words how I feel. What a joy it is to be their mother. Talking to them like this was a lesson. The truth is, I can never get enough of them. 



                      CAMPBELL FAMILY


Hearing their voices I find myself getting a little bit wiser. Seeing Gods hand working in my children's life is awesome. I could have never faced this deployment without my beautiful kids and my relationship with God. Knowing that his love is simply unbreakable, is the Glue that holds this family together. I pray that you have found ways to spend time with your family during spring break and that you are treasuring every moment with your kids.







I would love to hear from you here at the blog. Send me an email, or leave a message in the comment section.

  4. It gets harder as the kids get older to spend time together. We have decided that nothing is more important so we TRY as hard as we can to make their activities spend loving time with them and make a effort to be supportive in their lives. No parent is perfect and I know that. We just try to do the very best that we can.

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

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.
