My Christmas Shopping. But Even More.

Hey everyone :)

I've been pretty busy lately but I wanted to share my life on this past Friday with you. It was one of my best friends' Birthday so she invited me to go shopping with her and some of her family. The previous night i was staying at a motel in Owen Sound because I went with my mom to the hospital there so she could get an MRI. So we got up early and headed back to little Wingham. We were both very tired.
         As soon as we got back I was off again but this time to Kitchener. It was very squishy in the car. Laurens dad, Dana, Racheal, Lauren and I. It was nice though, we all joked and laughed. When we got there we went to one of the malls, Fairview i believe. I didn't do any shopping there but we all split up so Lauren and I could have some time to just hang out. We had lots of fun together even though i'm very awkward when shopping. Then we went to a few stores on our way to a better mall.
          At the next mall (Conestoga), I ended up buying most of my Christmas gifts. I got deals on all of them. When everyone was finished shopping we met up again and i noticed that throughout the day i became so close with their family that i was acting like they were my own. A salesman asked Laurens dad if we were all his daughters. He replied yes but then the salesman said: "But not the blonde one right?" Which i realized made me really sad. It probably shouldn't because he's not my dad and i have my own but i really like pretending to belong to their family for awhile.
       Later we met up with Laurens mom and we all had supper together. It was such a wonderful day and i felt really loved. I had so much attention on me but everyone else had a lot too and it felt like i was in one of those "perfect little families" for awhile. They are really great people.

Here goes nothing.

Okay. This is a blog. Not really sure what people usually write but i figured I'd try this out and see what happens. I'm not very interesting, I don't have very many profound thoughts and I'm a terrible writer but I've made this to just speak. To whoever wants to listen. Maybe no one does. Either way, I'm typing it.
         Today I watched a video that my friend Adam made. He talked about how our lives are not mistakes and God has a purpose for everyone. It seemed that i watched it at the exact right time. I have been feeling pretty down lately. I felt under-appreciated and like no one really pays attention to anything i do. I guess thats not what Adams video was about but then i went to this page he made for people to leave comments and stuff.
           This is actually how i came to making a blog because one of my acquaintances posted her blog. I read it and she had posted a you tube video. It was like a letter from God and it just talked about how much he loves us and watches over us and i just kinda realized that it doesn't matter how much others don't care about what i do. God cares. He has always cared and always will. The past few weeks i felt further from God and i was really upset about it because i thought that i would feel like i was in his presence for longer than i did. No matter what though, we are going to go through ups as well as downs. After watching that video though, i felt closer to him. So i started listening to music. Not my usual christian music that i just kinda listen to. I listened to music that was going to make me think, was going to bring me closer to him. I'm loving this feeling.

So that is my first post i guess

Here is the video i watched:
Here is my friends blog that i was reading:
