time with the children

Well yesterday was an absolute blessing for the children and I!
We headed down to the beach about 2 p.m. we did some swimming and I was body surfing! The kids thought I was crazy because the waves were really high yesterday.
Then the concert started. I can't even explain how cool it was to see Nikki, Chris and Hope dancing on the beach at sunset.
Mercy me and all the others just gave us a great show. Mercy me said that they were honored to play for the troops, and being on the beach was the topping on the cake. It is nice to know that some people still care about our troops.
I called Rusty to let him know that the children were waiting for the concert to begin and that they were so excited. Rusty was thrilled. I could see him smiling through the phone. It was in that moment that I loved Rusty a little bit more. Here was my husband working, and here I was on the beach. I am so amazed at what he will do to support his family and what he gives up so we can have a good time.
I just can't believe what a great time the children had. I was so honored that they let me watch them and be a part of their night.
Life is sooooo good.

I'm glad you and the kids had a great time.

That's awesome! I'm so glad you all had such a great time. There really is something so special about music on the beach. We go to the drum circle at the beach a lot - not exactly a concert LOL, but it's like being in another world!
