Make NEW memories with your COLLEGE bound teenager



http://mycrazylifeasanavywife.blogspot.com/


Boy, this has sure been a tough few weeks for this Mama. My daughter Lyric and I have been filling out college applications, working with her teachers on recommendations and getting all of the paperwork ready for submission. As most of you already know, My 17 year old daughter Lyric will be the first of my 3 children to attend college. My husband Patrick and I are more than a LITTLE excited (Smile)

I have been spending a lot of time with her and trying to guide her in the right direction

BUT inside I am dreading the day when she finally leaves for college. 

(Slowly wiping the tears way)
I am doing a lot better than I was when we started this whole application process. I am mostly being as STRONG as I can for obvious reasons. She is such a smart kid, but not only that she makes me feel OK about this whole process. So no more crying ONLY appreciating this time watching her develop into a great and respectable young woman. She makes me so PROUD to be her mother. This girl is so strong and has the incredible ability to always show you the bright side of things. I LOVE HER!

Each time I look at one of these pictures of her smiling face, it triggers another SPECIAL memory that she and I shared. I know what some of  you are thinking, I should just be happy for this next milestone. Yes I am. 
YEAH...YEAH...
I can still day dream RIGHT? I like to think of the old days when she was learning to walk, attending her first day of school OR going to her first Prom. These have all been so important to me in the past. I have decided to make this adventure a fun one. She has her top 3 colleges picked where she wants to go . I encouraged her to step out of her comfort zone and apply at other schools as well. This way she has MORE OPTIONS and she is not limiting herself.

                THAT'S MY BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL LYRIC


I have made our days adventurous and also exciting. We have laughed, cried and shared coffee at Starbucks. We have even went for walks and enjoyed lunch together in the middle of the day. These simple acts may seem trivial to some, BUT I am utilizing every second that I have with her before she leaves us and goes to college. YES, I would love for her to stay with me forever and stay that baby I once held in my arms...BUT that surely will NOT be happening. I had to face the reality that our daughter Lyric is not a baby anymore. I smile inside because our daughter Lyric has always been a little firecracker. Always moving and always on the go. Believe it or not, She started walking at the precious age of 9 months and has been on super speed every since. (Smile)



I LIKE TO HER POSITIVE ATTITUDE

                I REMEMBER EACH MINUTE WITH HER SO CLEARLY

                            THIS PICTURE WAS 3 YEARS AGO.

Are you preparing one of your children to head of to college. If so, Make the most of these next few months. Share past memories of them growing up and make even NEW memories that they can take with them as they start this new journey. Regardless of the amount of time you have, use it wisely. I pray that things will be better than ever during this process. I will be praying for you.







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!

MY CRAZY LIFE BLOG 2018
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.
