The Sun will Come Out...Tomorrow

I took the girls to see Annie at the local theater last night. It was a great production and the cast did a wonderful job. It was a fun "girls only" night out. I love this musical and have fond memories of my mom taking me to see it with friends in Seattle. We were about 8 if I remember right and the whole way home we were singing "Tomorrow" at the top of our lungs. Stopping to laugh really hard at the line "bet your bottom dollar"! We thought it was so hilarious that Annie said "bottom". Well wouldn't you know it, my girls laugh at that same line! It was so good to see that Corinn loved the theatrical version more than the movie and she may even be interested in being in a play and singing. She is a very dramatic person and would do really well!

I couldn't help but have my mind on Elijah during the play, since it is about orphans. I am so thankful he is where he is. He is loved and cared for and there certainly is not a Miss Hannegan at COTP!

We love that show too. I'm glad you had a great time.

We sure watch "orphan movies" differently now, too.

Praying for you!

It is funny how many movies are about orphans! I didn't really notice this until we hosted the Ugandan Orphan Choir last year. We wanted to choose a movie to watch with the girls, and it was hard to find one that didn't remind them of their orphan state.
