Don't be AFRAID to reach out and ASK for Help

Good morning Everyone and welcome back to my blog. So glad you decided to join me here today...Today I want to talk about how we stretch ourselves in so many ways. I understand that we are mothers, wives, sisters, and friends BUT we are NOT magicians.

We wear many hats in our households and sometimes we FORGET the first rule of being a success AND that's you HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Yes you! Although you are busy in your everyday lives, its Imperative to keep yourself rested and healthy at all times. I pray that you are taking moments throughout your day to nourish your mind, body AND spirit.

Although I do many things here in the Florida, my FIRST priority will always be my family. Trust me, I know that you have good intentions and your heart is in the right place, but you have to be healthy to take care of others. You are no good to your family when you are beat down, fatigued and sick...

Remember that your kids, spouse and friends need you, a HEALTHY you. So continue to take care of yourself. You will see things slowly get more tranquil and your days will be more productive.

Many times we FORGET to slow things down a little. Some of us are running around in a CRAZY state of mind "Trying" to make other people and other things a priority. NO MORE! Let's start the day focusing on the things that matter most to God. Things like, Love and honoring our spouses, Spending quality time with our kids AND keeping God at the center of all we do.

If things seem overwhelming now, then its the PERFECT time for you to reach out to family, friends the church OR other military wives to give you a hand. Can you do that? Now, I understand that this will be hard for a lot of you. BUT, its necessary!

Once you decide to place things in the proper order, take care of yourself and determine when to ask for help, things will change for the better. I would love to hear how you have incorporated these steps in your own life. How awesome it is to have help from those you love you and only want what's best for you. I will be PRAYING for you.

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....


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)


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


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.


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.


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.


So I just finished walking for three miles. Who could resist. Its really a beautiful day here in Jacksonville. It has rained the last couple of days but it looks like I have my beautiful weather once again. On the days that it was raining, I had to pull out my treadmill to exercise. It is b…
