Is there ever a time to not be concerned about money?

I don't know what the answer for you is, but for me I don't worry about money at all when 

my little man is sick and needs to go to the doctor.  I am very frugal and cost conscious 95% of the time, but this morning I picked Will up to give him a hug and he was burning up.  Fever of 102.9 F to be exact!  It was time to go to the doctor and it didn't matter that a doctor visit was not in the budget for the week.  Will is doing fine, thank goodness, he is just teething and has an ear infection.

But what I'm trying to say is that money can't - and shouldn't - be the focus all the time.  It is hard, but we have to find a balance of family/friends/work/fun/responsibility/future goals/etc...  How do we do that?  I haven't figured it all out yet, but when I do you'll be the first to know.  Any of you guys have any ideas?
