On Saturday, September 24, we headed out to the Sears store at Woodfield Mall for a concert brought to us from the Heroes at Home program. The headliner of the show was Josh Gracin--one of my very favorite country music artists--so the show was almost a MUST for me. We heard on the radio that if you were one of the first 100 fans in line, you received a wrist band for a meet and greet with Josh. We received wrist bands and jumped in line.
We each received an autographed photo.
It was dedicated to a great cause, and it felt great to spend the day knowing we were out there to support our troops and to let the loved ones of the troops know that they are not alone.
Josh Gracin never lets us down and always provides a memorable show. We have seen him a few times now, and after each show we find ourselves discussing the best parts. This show was even more special because of the program it was being provided by.
Amy and I are lucky enough to have our family members home, and most are near us, but we are close with some people who have family members serving for our freedom. Anything we can do to show our support is worth it to us as individuals AND as sisters!
