NJ loves Bret Michaels and the B*M*B! Another AMAZING show last night.
Thank you! – Joanne
Thursday, April 16th at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA marks just one more phenomenal concert experience with Bret Michaels and the rest of the BMB boys. I can truly say that they never disappoint and always give an awesome and high energy performance. During my Meet & Greet I was able to show Bret my ink in the making. He absolutely LOVED it and asked me to share this picture with him. As promised, here it is and a brief story behind it…..
Growing up, I was very shy and definitely was not an outgoing individual. I was misinterpreted as not being friendly and had a hard time making friends. Those that were close to me, knew me as a loving, compassionate, and creative (which I think led to the Interior Design degree that I have today) person. They knew that they could always come to me because I was always there to listen, was never judgmental of their problems, thoughts and ideas and would do anything for them.
It took me several and I mean several years to come out of my shell and I have my husband to thank for his support and guidance in doing this. He would always say that “if you do not believe in yourself and love yourself for who you are, you will never be happy.” That is so very true…..
It has taken me almost 39 years to realize this, but I can truly say that my fun, outgoing, caring, compassionate and confident inner self has emerged. Whether it is spending hours with my husband, three children and three rescue pups, volunteering for local canine shelters, spending time with some invaluable friends, partying at each Bret Michaels concert within driving distance or spending some “me” time at the gym, I can truly say that I am loving every minute of it!
It is okay I was the person that I used to be. I was able to grow into the person that I am today and as Bret always says…..”Every Rose Has Its Thorn”.
These are my girls that were at the Penn’s Peak concert on April 16. (My birthday) I was very upset that I couldn’t make it. (I live in Nebraska) They asked Bret if he would text me and he told them to call me. I am on the phone with Bret in this picture. I want Bret to know how special he made my birthday. It was a short conversation but it meant the world to me. I can’t wait to rock out in Rock Island, IL on June 20th.
