Garr and I were able to go out April 11th to a Sixers game and a Jeremy Camp concert. I won tickets on the radio. I have never won anything like this before - it was so fun! We worked out sitting for all the kids, and Garr was able to get off work early. We drove out to Philly, and walked about a mile to the Wachovia Center (later we saw much better parking, but the weather was really nice so we didn't mind walking!) Our tickets were in the nose-bleed section! I was so scared. I thought for sure someone would fall, but of course, no one did. The game was pretty close throughout, although the Pacers were always in the lead. They really were the better team - they worked together so well. The concert following was good too. At first we didn't have the greatest seats, but then some people left so we moved to their seats and it was great. It was a very worshipful concert - Jeremy shared a lot about how God helped him when his wife died. It gave Garr and I a lot to think about. All in all, a very special "night out!"
Me - clinging to my seat! Garr - showing off, as always! (see the bruises from jui-jitsu?) Our view from the nosebleed section This camera has great zoom! "Swish!" Final Score Jeremy Camp, sharing his heart
I'm trying to find the right balance in life. I'm attempting to be a great mom, wife, daughter, Christian, friend, teacher, and homemaker. Some days are better than others. I'm learning it's ok to not be perfect. I'm learning to be content in all circumstances. I'm learning to take better care of myself so I can take better care of my family. I'm learning to enjoy the little moments in life instead of always focusing on what's ahead. I'm learning to embrace the now.
