SENDING my son Patrick off to school TODAY with Prayers AND Love



http://mycrazylifeasanavywife.blogspot.com/


Good morning all. Its a BEAUTIFUL day here in sunny Florida and I have the distinct pleasure of waving goodbye to my son Patrick as he heads to his school bus. I know what you are thinking...What is so excting about waving to your son?  (Smile) Well, I am I am pretty excited this morning because he is heading to High School. Yes, I am such a proud parent today. I am happier than ever that he has reached this new milestone. You see, Patrick is the youngest of our kids so I guess I knew I would have these feelings. The truth is, he will always be my baby. YES, I did call him my baby. I find it hard to stop calling him my baby BUT he keeps reminding me that he is 14 years old. I ask myself, "Where did the time go?"

This is that rare time when parents have kids big enough to do most things themselves. My kids are now driving, car pooling and developing friendships that draw them away from home more and more. Most people would cringe at the idea of their children getting older and becoming more independent....NOT ME.

I am excited about this new chapter where my husband and I will find MORE alone time and MORE time to re-connect as a couple. I will still PRAY for my son Patrick, BUT now my prayers will evolve to cover him and his friends when he is away from home. Are you going through a similar situation with your teenager? I would love to hear about it. So Don't cry and understand that this is not the time to be sad. INSTEAD, be excited about this new season. I pray that this season of change in your life will bring new reflection and a deeper relationship with God.

BACK TO SCHOOL MEANS A SHIFT IN YOUR SCHEDULE AS WELL AS YOUR WAY OF THINKING. THIS COULD BE THE BEST TIME TO STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE AND TRY SOMETHING THAT YOU NEVER HAD TIME FOR BEFORE. MAYBE YOU WANT TO VOLUNTEER AT YOUR CHURCH OR A COMMUNITY SHELTER. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT TO WHAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE NOW THAT YOU HAVE SO MUCH TIME TO "REFLECT".

My son Patrick has grown so beautifully right in front of our eyes. This PROUD mama is over-joyed that he chose this path. So I cry just a few tears this morning for my baby that is becoming a young man, BUT I smile with playful anticipation at the prospect that NOW I will have MORE time with my husband Patrick. And you know what, I am really looking forward to this new stage where we will step back a Little bit and see this young man step into his destiny and watch our marital bond grow stronger.

Are you reaching a new stage in your life? How are your children adapting? Whatever stage you find yourself in today, Prepare with prayer and a POSITIVE attitude so that there will be NO worries. That makes me smile. Have a good day and remember that I will be praying for you.

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!

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.
