(NOTE: I wrote this poem recently. It pertains to my service as a Navy Nurse Officer in the Gulf War and my experiences since I came back home).


Bruised and broken,
I came back home,
To a world that was cold.

My life was sold,
To a government,
That had no soul.

Put in harm's way,
My health was the price,
I had to pay,
For a war that never really came.

Since then,
Nothing in my life,
Has been the same.

I face the unknown each day,
Wondering about,
The price I paid,
For a war that never really came.

I really prepared HARD AHEAD OF TIME so that I could get a Front Row VIP Package for Josh's concert in Phoenix, AZ on Aug. 19th. I practiced using the presale links on FOJG ahead of time so that I could see that the links went straight to Ticketmaster which I already have an account with and was kept logged into. Ticketmaster used to be very good at looking at seating charts for events and telling you exactly how the seating arrangements are; ie how the seats are numbered, where they are in relation to the stage, etc. So I stupidly talked to a customer service rep last night about the seating chart for Josh's concert instead of calling the venue. I was told, and it was also on the Ticketmaster website, that there were 2 rows in front of row 1--rows AA and BB.

So happy you let us know more of the tour dates, Josh! I was waiting on pins and needles to hear about that. I got scared when I was scanning the dates because I didn't see a tour date for Phoenix, AZ--then I looked more carefully and there it was--Phoenix, AZ on Aug. 19th. I can't wait to see you in concert again and am excited about the new concert format you are cooking up!!! All in all--great way to start my day. Now drink plenty of fluids, eat alot of chicken soup, starve your cold, and get some sleep (this is your mother speaking--LOL!) Seriously, take care of that crummy cold so you can feel better soon. Love you lots and lots!!! Andi XOXOXO

I know I'm a few hours late with this, but even if you don't get to read this, Josh, I want to wish you a very HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY!!! I bet you can't believe you are now 30 yrs old. Hopefully you have prepared yourself for the shock. I know you cut your hair a bit shorter because you are now middle-aged--ha, ha, ha--just kidding! Who am I to talk. I'm older than you, anyway. So I hope your birthday was awesome and I can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for 2/28/2011. It looks like the surprise isn't going to be revealed until later in the morning EST, since I got on FOJG at 3am MST and you still just have the date and some photo of some spotlights up right now. I wait in eager anticipation to see what is in store.

Sometimes when you can't see what's in front of you,
Look around and change your point of view.
Live each day as if it's your last,
Forget the regrets of the past.
Life can be sweet,
If you live each day denying defeat.
Think of all the things you've got,
And not what you have not.
Don't let things get you down,
All you need to do is look around.
