A LETTER TO MY HUSBAND ON OUR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY


                      MY DEAREST PATRICK:

When I first met you 19 years ago Patrick, I never imagined the journey we would take as man and wife. I never knew there would be so many COMPLICATED layers to being married... I never experienced this level of love until I married you Patrick. Our relationship has been far from perfect…And I know that we both have strong heads on our shoulder....But through all these years we have continuously put GOD first in our marriage.



                                                  HE GAVE ME HIS HEART


I remember the first time I laid eyes on you, the first date, the birth of our children, joining church and living this "AMERICAN DREAM"..... One thing I do know is that GOD must have a sense of humor. Look at us, living this Navy adventure, two imperfect people….A girl from the west side of Chicago who loves Southern cooking marries a Chef from Durham North Carolina..(SMILE) We’re complementary.... I wouldn't trade any of the last nineteen years for anything Patrick. I am so proud to call you my husband. There is no other person who knows me so well, and no other person I’d rather walk this life with... than you. Happy Anniversary!!

           MY HUSBAND PATRICK SUPPORTED ME WHEN I DECIDED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL


THANK YOU so much for loving me, thank you for believing in me and thank you for always seeing the very best in me. I FEEL SO FREE with you Patrick, and I have never been happier as I am RIGHT NOW TODAY as your wife. Thank you for standing beside me through these years... Thank you for leading our family under the COVERING OF GOD...And through all our ups and downs we continue to stick together and support each other.

                      HE HAS TAKEN ME ALL OVER THE WORLD






EVERY TIME YOU CAME BACK FROM DEPLOYMENT, I COULD BREATHE AGAIN!!

This has been a AMAZING journey with our share of ups and downs... We have traveled the world, we have had children, we have lost a parent, laughed, cried and through it all we have done it TOGETHER as a team. Loving one another, laughing and our FAITH IN GOD has made these THE BEST 19 years of my life...So my dearest husband, as we celebrate today and look to our future together, let’s continue to focus on loving each other every minute of the day, HEART AND SOUL...I Love you with all of my heart Patrick.


Happy Anniversary MAY 26TH 2011.

  2. @Jennifer..you are right we have to uplift our husbands. My husband Patrick and I uplift each other. I have to admit we were not always so in tune with each other. Took years to get us at this place. Regardless, I have "always" supported and loved him during this "crazy life as a navy wife"..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…

PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH

Most of us are struggling to pay the mortgage... Most of us are struggling to pay our children's tuition. We work hard and yet we are constantly coming up short.....
I submit to you today that all of that can change through the power of prayer and a positive attitude. I personally believe that prayer has changed the circumstances in our home.




I believe that communication, prayer and honesty within a marriage, is key to maintaining financial freedom.












Secrets tend to destroy a relationship.








So sit down today with your spouse and openly discuss all financial matters in your house. When you pray talk to God about your finances.




Here is a prayer that we use in our home.


Hope this can help to strengthen your family and enable you to be at peace concerning your finances:




PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH




Father God, you are the source of all my sustenance. So I come to you today in prayer and I pray for you toHEAR ME AND GUIDE MEin your infinite wisdom.

My spirit is full, but my wallet is always…

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 …

I am finally Finding the strength I need to be strong as my youngest child Patrick prepares to step into his destiny!

Find the strength to be strong as your child prepares to step into their new chapter. I know that this will be extremely hard but you can do it. Remember to pray, pray and pray some more until you feel that peace that will allow you to let your child head out the door. Love them and let God carry them to this new and exciting phase. Remember you did so much from them. You bandaged their scrapes. You held them during bullying and you instilled all the right ingredients that will make them equipped for this college life (Smile) Its going to be OK.

Sometimes as parents we feel helpless and then God reminds us that he has it all under control!

Sometimes as parents we feel helpless and then God reminds us that he has it all under control! I have three children and one of them, my daughter is in college. She lives in Tallahassee Florida. I guess its about three hours away. I love and miss her so much but I know that she has a good head on her shoulders. My daughter has so much on her plate. Working, student government, her Sorority and studying. She spends most of her days away from her apartment and usually shrugs in after dark. That is where I worry. A beautiful young girl coming home at night but she assures me that she is strong and able to handle anything that comes her way. She said mom I got this, I told her no. God has it. (Smile)
