The Police Concert

14 years of marriage and we are at The Police concert. Who would have thought?! Everyone is so mellow. It must be because we are all in our 30's and 40's. And Sting is not looking that young himself! I am not sure if it was the beard which I could have done without. But he and his two band members put on a great show cutting loose and just jamming. This is the last Police tour. Sting's quote: "It's the end of an era."

The first time I heard The Police was at Cassandra's slumber party. I was in sixth grade(25 years ago). We sang our hearts out: There's a little black spot on the sun today...
I enjoyed the concert, but it made me realize how blessed I am every week. I worship God in an incredible church, The Rock, with talented musicians. Worshipping God is fulfilling. Sting opened his concert with a song about a hole in his life. A shadow in his heart... I thought, "Wow, this is the opposite of what I sing and feel. My heart is so filled with the Love of God." It makes me realize how blessed my life is.

Speaking of blessed. I am so blessed to have such a beautiful and great sister. Can you see the resemblance? Our kids have confused us. Especially when we have our glasses on sipping our coffee. We have both experienced people talking to us only to realize they have the wrong sister. Oh, it's fun! I noticed at the concert we even dance the same. Now how funny is that...

my husband went to a conference for work a month back and called me one night. it was so loud and he yelled "guess where i am....a POLICE concert!" they had gotten last minute tickets and went after it had already started.
it was a funny phone call to get.

i love play doh too.
and i am so glad that you are one of the moms that allows it. so many moms are too worried about hte mess. Good for YOU!
