Today was the last day of Willy Wonka. People keep asking me if I'm glad, or if this is bittersweet... I can't say either is an accurate representation of how I feel right now. I'm actually a little bit heart broken. I never knew it would feel like this. I expected to be sad about it being over and saying bye to everyone, but I didn't expect it to be this bad.
I didn't want to say my goodbyes to anyone, but there were several people that I feel the urge to cry. Those people would be Maribeth ( Violet's mother), Seth (Grandpa Joe), Wesley (The Candy Man), Mandi (Mrs. Bucket), and of course Ocean (an Oompa Loompa). I might elaborate on these people at a later date, but for now just know that they were a huge part of making this an amazing summer. I will miss everyone, but these people really touched my life.
I think I've caught the acting bug. I have a desire to be in more plays now. Whether it's a musical or not. Just the whole experience... and the people... I'm addicted now.
So I'm here nursing my hurting heart, praying that these people don't forget about me, because I know I won't be forgetting about them. Thank you for all y'alls prayers. I'm so thankful that I listened to God's prompting about being part of this play.
Here are a few pictures from the show:
