My self-worth was NEVER defined by my marriage

I was married for half of my life to my ex husband Patrick. We had some good times and they were not all bad. I hold no bitterness for him and will never bad mouth him here on my blog. I admit that I was lost for a while. Well, I guess you can say that I lost myself. I was always called Chief Campbell's wife or CMC Campbell's wife. I was always proud of my husband and all of his achievements but I was never defined by him and him alone. There were so many people who thought so. And there were many people who under estimated me. There are many lessons that I had to learn. I also had to find many answers for myself. Finally, no one persons opinion mattered to me anymore. I found the strength from deep within and this girl from Chicago was ready to shine.


My self worth was never defined by my marriage. I am a USN Veteran, a mother of three and a Certified Surgical Technologist. I have struggled and have had a series of highs and lows that attempted to break me to my core. I picked myself up and I am back now stronger than ever. For those of you who love and know me...THANK YOU!


The bright light that you see all over me was once dim and almost faded out but those days are over. I love this new me, A much stronger me and there is no looking back.

No regrets from my marriage. I have the best kids who love their mama and had some good years with my ex husband. I prayed and still pray for him and his new family. So grateful of my new life today. Never felt better and my kids have never been happier. Praying for all of you still fighting your battles. Your struggle will end soon and your own light will shine once again!

  1. Thank you All for your outpouring of love, encouragement, and thoughtfulness. My heart is still beating, I'm still breathing and that's a good thing I suppose. This is just very fresh. I know that God will get me through this. Only He can. I've been getting love poured on me through all of you and my family of friends. I am so happy now. God is using His body to apply the blood where I hurt. Thank You Lord for your love, grace and mercy. I love 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....

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.

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…
