It’s that time again
Spring is just around the corner and that means two things : Cleaning and concert time. We have a few good bands heading our way this year too. Just yesterday, I purchased some Building 429 tickets, and the Rock and Worship Roadshow with Mercy Me, Jeremy Camp, and others. I’m stoked! (folks still use that word, right?) I love concerts even at my age.
Now, I know what your thinking: why would a woman who’s family is in financial distress be buying concert tickets? I’ll tell you why. Our family could use a little R&R from the daily stress of being broke. This is a positive thing that I can share with my kids, and the total price for the tickets was cheaper than the price of just one of their field trips for school.
We don’t go to movies. We don’t eat out. We don’t go shopping, and my kids don’t partake in sports. So why not spend a little dough on a Christian concert? Besides, I felt a little guilty that we couldn’t afford to send them on their school spring trips that all their friends are going on.
So for the next few weeks we will be eating Raman noodles, hot dogs, and sandwiches in order to pay for the tickets, but I say the sacrifice is totally worth it. I can’t wait!
