Tomorrow..Tomorrow

I remember loving the movie "Annie" when I was younger. What's not to love? A poor little orphan gets to spend Christmas with a billionaire and then, beating the odds, gets adopted. It's a great story.

Saturday, I got to enjoy a live performance of the play. It was wonderful. The little girls were amazing in their singing and acting and dancing. Sooo adorable. The sets were beautiful. Even the dirty streets of New York seemed attractive. The adult actors were great. Miss Hannigan was the perfect mixture of funny and creepy and Daddy Warbucks, with shining head, was so believable as the grumpy old man who learns to love a little orphan. But my favorite character, of course, is Annie. She's smart and funny and brave and, above all, optimistic. No matter what, she looks at the world through eyes that see the good in people and circumstances. Through all she goes through, she is able to see the good in her life. And more than that, she spreads this to all those around her. What a good reminder that, after all, the sun will come up tomorrow...

What a great day! And instead of, "You're always a day away," remember, today is yesterday's "tomorrow!"

"Annie" is wonderful! I remember seeing it in the theater with my Mom when it came out, and coming home singing all the songs, especially "Dumb Dog"...lol! Glad you had such an uplifting experience!
