Remember how bummed I was because after a few years of waiting to see my friend in concert I wasn't going to be able to do so?? Well, all I can say is that life will put you to test but with faith, even for the smallest and simplest things, anything is possible.
A week before the concert I sold the tickets for well above face value taking advantage of the fact that the show was sold out. I didn't want to do it at all. But I knew I had to and it was the right thing to do for my family. It was going to hurt us financially being out that much money and also the extra expending to be incurred when traveling. And when you hurt financially there is a chain of events that follow, stress in the family, arguments, lack of peace, etc etc...
Then I called and I gave my friend the news. I didn't have to be sad for much longer. I WAS GOING!!!!! She was gifting us the tickets and the VIP's to be able to be backstage with her and the band and crew. After all a good friend is always a good friend and she too had been waiting to see us again.
On Friday, we made our trip together with a couple of other friends
At Will Call:
Three generations happy, excited ready to go!
Juntas todas! Together! She was absolutely beautiful. The same down to earth girl I've always known. Even with all her fame and money it felt so comfortable, so right . And she adored Katy complimenting her sweetness, beauty and sense of style. Gracias amiga. Hasta la próxima! Que bendición que te pusieron en nuestro camino, que bendición haberte conocido!
