MY BABY BOY PATRICK.......

http://mycrazylifeasanavywife.blogspot.com/




I have a 15 year old son named Patrick Campbell. He is a handsome YOUNG MAN with a big smile and the prettiest brown eyes I have ever seen. I love him for so many reasons. Mostly because He came into my life at a time when I was able to stay home and be a full-time mom. What a blessing it was back then.



I was on Active duty when I had my first son Elijah and with my daughter Lyric I was trying to work and go back to school. I had to pray about it. I needed God's direction on my decisions back then. I decided to be as open-minded as possible with this new baby. So I stepped out of my comfort zone and I did everything different with him. I decided to do Lamaze, birthing classes, I had a mid-wife and I decided that I would breast feed. I came out of my shell with him and did a lot of FIRSTS.

 I miss Patrick the baby, but Patrick the 15 year old is a comedian, a perfectionist, a realist and a winner in EVERY GAME we play as a family. No matter the game, he ALWAYS wins. I AM SERIOUS (smile)

                I love you my sweet baby boy Patrick.


As he has grown and developed I have realized that our children live their lives in unique phases. When one ends, another phase begins. My baby will soon be in seventh grade and he has already exhibited flashes of being a teenager. I know that change with our children is inevitable but I sure do miss having him hold on to my leg every time I went to the door.

I guess I just want to remind everyone that life is short and those moments, those special moments will be gone in an instant. I encourage you to love your children, spend time with your children and seize EVERY MOMENT.

  6. Hello Everyone...I received lots of emails about this particular story....Each one with its on perspective about how we should raise young boys in today's society....I am an active part of my sons life, but my husband Patrick has been instrumental in teaching my two sons the values that they need to be successful...He spends countless hours just talking to the boys..I am so grateful to have such a strong husband that spends his time not only being a daddy, but also being a teacher...Anybody can be a daddy; but it takes a real man to be a Father, I applaud my husband Patrick and I know in my heart that God is smiling down on him for a job well done.

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.
