The Campbell House looks like a TORNADO passed through





                             FATHER GIVE ME STRENGTH TODAY




HAVE YOU HAD THOSE DAYS WHEN NOTHING IS GOING RIGHT? AND YOUR HOUSE LOOKS LIKE LIKE A TORNADO PASSED THROUGH? I have to come clean and be honest with my readers today- My house looks awful. How did it get this way? I have to leave it this way, just for a moment. I have to head to my prayer group. I WILL TAKE CARE OF IT LATER...Boy was that a mistake. Lesson learned here, NEVER PUT OFF SOMETHING THAT COULD GET DRASTICALLY WORSE! (SMILE)



CAN YOU COME BACK NEXT WEEK? 





My navy husband is deployed and I have two of my children still living at home. I have a 14 year old and a 16 year old. We had so many activities this week and left for the weekend. We just got back in. OH NO! Stuff is EVERYWHERE! I just stopped for a minute looked around and everything was out of place. I know that I SHOULD NOT of been blogging this morning BUT trust me when I say, It was WAY more fun then cleaning this messy house. (Smile)  Truthfully, I was so much in a rush when I left the house that I really didn't care if it was clean or not. Has that happened to you? 





Oh my goodness! I have got to give myself a break sometime and realize this house CAN NOT STAY PERFECTLY CLEAN 24 hours a day no matter what age my children are (Smile) OK I feel better now. Let me tell you, I receive so many letters and emails from women who feel strongly that if you are a "Stay at home wife/mom", That you have nothing going on. That you simply lay around all day long (Smile) ARE YOU STILL LAUGHING? I know I was when I was reading those letters. I work more IN my house and for HIS Kingdom than I did when I had a Full-time job at the hospital. 


HOPE THAT MADE YOU LAUGH




No amount of prayer can get those dishes done or the rug vacuumed. It takes prioritizing and a real simple approach to cleanliness. I know we laughed at the beginning of this blog post but seriously, We as wives MUST arrange our time in a way to take care of our kids, husbands and ourselves. Slow down a little bit and start to ORGANIZE Things so that you wont come home to a house that looks like a "Tornado" came through. It CAN BE ACHIEVED through prayer and meditation.  We as mothers/wives CAN keep a clean household, take care of our families AND still have quiet time for the Lord. That makes me smile knowing that I can do this. And so can you.


YOU CAN DO THIS

From this moment forward, I am determined to get my house in order. I know that this task may seem impossible for some of you right now, but my bible says I CAN DO IT. ARE YOU READY to start getting your house organized?

The most important thing is to NOT let the devil steal any more of your time! No more! Your priorities are right on! I know that right now there may be some dishes in the sink, or maybe there is some laundry that should be done. Those things will be DONE just as soon as you BREATHE and take it slow. 

I will be praying for you as I continue to learn this for myself. God Bless you all and REMEMBER that you are a beautiful child of God.






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

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.
