I can’t believe that it’s the last day of slices! It seems like just yesterday that Mrs. Cornwell told me about it. And to think I almost didn’t do it because I was scared. I’m so glad that I did. It feels so odd to think that I don’t have to post tomorrow, it’s become part of my routine,like brushing my teeth. I have the same feeling right now as I do at the end of Summer Theater pool party, I know that I can come back next year but still sad. I’m going to keep my blog and hope to post occasionally. I have to say again that I am so grateful that I’ve had this opportunity,I have grown so much as a writer, as well as a reader.
Opposite of cheery
Today I waited tables at Baileys benefit. Every time an order took longer or we got backed up I thought it doesn’t matter it’s all for Bailey. I’ve known Bailey since we were in diapers so I was willing to do anything. Today was his birthday and he was stuck in the hospital. I’m glad I worked.
I have such a busy day so I’ll write now! So on thursday day I went to bed crying sobbing almost. But don’t be worried it was for a good thing. I had just finished one of the best books I have ever read, The Outsiders. I loved it I didn’t really even want to read it but I’m so glad that I did, it was so good ! You all need to read it.
Today I went to a retreat. Most people would say “That sounds so boring” or “What do you do, just pray all day? That’s dumb.” I’m not really sure why though, maybe because they’ve never been to one. Personally I LOVE retreats. You get to step back and take a look at your life and your relationship with God. It’s amazing.
Today we focused on suffering and how Jesus died for us. It’s amazing to think that God loved us so much that he died for us. He didn’t just die he SUFFERED immensely. Personally I believe that we all have our cross to bear. People will say that if God is loving then why does he let thing like cancer and hurricanes happen, not because he doesn’t love us but because he does. He never promised to end suffering but to be with us when we did. And he holds true to that promise, things may not always go the way we want it to but they they do go the best way. God can sow you that good things can come out of the worst experiences.

How about you?
Today was one of my favorite kind of days. You don’t often walk out your door an find the sweetest smell that ever did meet a nose. Rain, sweet soft rain. Some people find rainy days gloomy and disheartening but not me. I find them comforting and beautiful. It’s amazing really when you think about it, how water just falls from the clouds to the earth. Rain to me is like snow is to Lorelai Gilmore (from Gilmore Girls). I could sit in the rain for hours,letting the small water droplets land on me.Rain could possibly be my favorite things in the world.
Can you imagine knowing that you could get sick from something so simple as to drinking water? People all over the world wonder that everyday. We watched a video in SS today about a school girl in Ghana. They talked about how they could get guinea worms from drinking water. Guinea worms can grow inside you for up to a year and can grow up to 8 inches long! They come our wherever they want to. They make a hole and come out at whatever speed they want.You can however pull them out wit a twig, I’m sure that feels great!
I watch smiling
as they giggle their little giggles
and smile their their smiles.
Not a care in the world.
Michigan State just won so I’m pretty happy.
