Hello BLOGfriends 🙂

I just got back from Relay for Life. If you dont know what it is, normally cities, or schools get into teams and raise money for cancer research. this year my roomie tiegaan and i volunteered at the event, making spa appointments and selling raffle balloons. So much fun! im not sure if walking around a track wearing a massive blue shirt yelling “Buy a balloon, win a prize” sounds fun, but i actually had a blast. Winded down the night saying a prayer for the hundreds of people there celebrating lives and for my family + traceys fam. its awesome to see people come together.

IE GIRL!!! the retreat for 09 is ready to go! check out the link below for early registration details.

IM SO RE-OBSESSED with degrassi, TNG. I rewatched the entire 7th season in 2 days, and i remembered how much i missed it! and it seems lately that im drawn to what disney channel called their “biggest mistake” in a tv show, “Phil of the Future” and it always makes me cry. like right now, im watching it…and im tearing. hahha


so as you know from a few posts earlier, my best friend is getting married! ive since been asked to be her MAID OF HONOUR! ive written a speech, and planned a bridal shower and im having A BLAST. Love you Trace, 98 days!

i think my next blog, will be about being homesick. even though im 20. these past few weeks i havent slept a wink, and i find myself crying every night, and wanting to go home. is that weird? I spent every year from age 5 to age 17 at summer camp, and i finally go to college and i cant stand being away from home. meh. stayed tuned.

my sponsor child can write full sentences in english. im completely in awe.
when my mom and i started sponsoring Salamah, from Uganda she was 6. her teacher used to write us a letter saying she was in school, attending every day, and doing ok. Now she is almost 10!, and I got a letter from her, using basic english sentences.
This is what it said

Dear Jacqui and Sarah

I love you much and am happy to write to you. am in school now and am so happy I have teachers. my family has sends thank you and their so happy for your wonderful love. my holiday was good i help my mother in a lot of work at home. thank you so much for paying for school. so much love ( weird uganda word) salamah

The one thing in this world i would love so much would to be to meet her. she is such a sweetie. she drew me a picture of her wearing new shoes and cooking on a big purple stove. I just want to go and hug her. arg.

– Being away from my fam and my friends and my church weakened me. and even though i may never really realize how much i fall apart every single time, it’s like God looks right past it and just hugs me.  I read something in my devotional the other night that was so real to me it was scary. my devo. uses made up examples to get points across. The story was a girl named Sarah ( do you see the irony already?) who had a boyfriend in college, and was..not necesarily a bad person, but not the type of person who she wanted to be. Her and her boyfriend broke up after things weren’t working out and Sarah fell apart, not eating, worrying about her weight…and right then, I fell apart. It was so real to me, that the story I was reading was my life a year ago. The clear reason for my happiness was when I realized that God was going to take care of me.

so i leave you with my new found favourite bible verse, ive heard it once or twice but sometimes you need to read it for yourself to stick out. lots of love,  sare. 🙂

Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12 : 1-2

i miss home.

I keep forgetting about you blog. I know I said i wouldn’t do this to you but I am a forgetful and at times selfish individual. I will try to pencil you in, somwhere around twitter and dailybooth. You know you will always be the one for me but I got other social networks to please.

Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.

good choice, or bad choice?

This is a tough one for me. This time last year i had the perfect life planned out. I was going to go to Georgian College, become a child and youth worker, i was in a fantastic relationship, i thought i was in love, i was going to live at my grandparents house, continue to work at the resort part time and still be close to all my friends.

And all of that crashed in a two week time frame.

The problem i ran away from was a boy. The boy that i was in such a fantastic loving relationship with. All of the sudden, we weren’t nice to eachother, and if we still did love eachother we had a sure lame way of showing it. ( I’m in no way shape or form blaming this on him.. i was a pretty nasty jerk ) but anyway, that ended and all of the sudden i was left with a college i didnt want to go to, a profession i didnt know much about, and a part time job i hated. In 3 months i shaped this perfect life for myself, and in 2 weeks it fell apart.

So i ran

I spent my whole summer taking transfer courses, saving money, and fighting with ontario colleges every day to let me switch. I made the switch and i ran 3 hours away from home, to peterborough. Where every night for the first few weeks of september i held photos of him and sobbed and cried, i ate cereal and only cereal ( those who know me, know i hate cereal with a violent passion) I spent 200 dollars a week in phone calls home and i figured out that this run wasn’t right.

but what was i going to do? My family couldnt possibly want to hear me say yet again that i wanted to change. i stuck it out, and now im the happiest girl ever, taking social work, still 3 hours from home, still talking to my friends, including the friend that made me run in the first place. its been an entire year, and i couldnt possibly think of what i wouldve been doing if i had stayed at home. I’ve started this crazy life here, and i kinda like it.


so, for this time i say, running from a problem. good choice.
