Tomorrow Brit Boy and I were supposed to be going into London to see Whoopi Goldberg perform in the West End musical, "Sister Act". I’m sure that many of you will remember her in the movie role of Deloris, the singer who hides out in a convent, in order to not be found by criminals. Well Ms. Goldberg is one of the producers of the musical and had decided to step into the role of the Mother Superior in the last few weeks since the previous actress’ run ended. I was SO EXCITED when I found out that Whoopi was going to be stepping into the role and we promptly got tickets.
I was going to post about it today to share my excitement, but this post has to go another way sadly. Whoopi Goldberg’s mother has suffered a stroke, so she has flown back home to the USA to be with her. My prayers certainly go with her. Parents are so precious, and since neither one of mine are living now, it always hits me when I hear about things going wrong with other peoples’ parents. It hits me in a place that will be tender forever because I miss my parents everyday. So I just pray that all goes well with Whoopi’s mother.
On a lighter note, after Brit Boy and I found out about this turn of events this afternoon, we were wondering what we should do…go to the show or do something else. Well, since my WHOLE reason for going was to see Whoopi Goldberg on stage in the musical, I was kind of neutral and so was Brit Boy. Therefore, we decided to skip the performance since they were inexpensive seats anyway, and yet we’re still heading to London for a bit of a hang out. So it’s all good! :-)
We haven’t been to London, since we went to see "Cat On A Hot Tin Roof", so we’re gonna just enjoy a day of no real plans and just seeing what we get up to. I'm going to try my best to come back with some photos to share. Until then, have a great weekend everybody!
