MAKE THAT CALL






My life today is filled with wonderful memories and the love from my family. My daughter came down from college and when she walked in the door she looked exactly like my deceased mother. She is the striking image of my mother and I am reminded of all of the wonderful memories I shared with her. Not feeling sad about those memories, I actually feel a tremendous amount of joy because my daughter and I are making memories of our own.

I smile when I remember my mother and sometimes it hits me extremely hard. How about you? Have you lost a loved on? If you have, you know that some days are better than others. Some days I wish that I could call her and hear her voice again. Today I have her in my heart and her memories keep me motivated with my own kids.
That is why when my kids are away, I call, text or I face time them. I need to hear their voices. I feel so blessed to be their mother. I really mean those words. I love those unexpected calls. I love hearing about whats going on in their lives. Though my daughter is away at college, I make her experiences a part of our conversations. My oldest son Elijah is now 25. I ask myself, where did the time go? He lives in Atlanta. He is my oldest and he is always busy. Well, That is what he says. We constantly text and I talk to him a few times a week. I make it a priority to mail him letters as well. I want for him to know that though he is away, he is missed here by me. And then there is my baby boy Patrick who is becoming a man. His favorite words are...OK MA! He gets most of my attention because he still lives here with me. There are never to many "MOMMY LOVES YOU PAT". I shower him with my love and attention. He will graduate from high school and he will turn 18 this year. So time moves so quickly. You have to let those you love know it. Say it loud and say it often.

So grateful that my daughter still calls regularly. I miss her being away at college but we find time each week to stay connected.



If your mom is alive tell her daily how much you love her. If you have a relative or friend to call today, don't put it off another day. Today I want for you to make that call. I want for you to trust and believe that you can do it. Trust and believe that connections are important. Trust and believe in God. MAKE THE CALL TODAY.




"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Revelation 21:4



This is my prayer for each and every one of you today. God Bless you all.

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.

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.
