Hi, I'm Mari Lei Lace Macapinlac
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. "
- Proverbs 3:5-6
I suddenly miss everything about Oregon.
I wonder sometimes what it would be like if I never left. Maybe I wouldn’t have lost some of the things I’ve lost, but at the same time I wouldn’t have been able to gain all I’ve gained. I guess…It’s one of those things I’ll never know.
I miss my friends and all the things we did together; how planning, being festive and loving themes wasn’t out of the ordinary.
I miss my HOME.
As said by Mya, “Take me there, I wanna go there!…Sittin’ here thinking ‘bout yesterday. About what we did and how we used to play just the thought of you brings a smile upon my face that’s how it makes me feel to see you everyday “
is too much for me. I enjoy the parties, clubs and all that come with it, but compared to my life in Oregon this is SO different.
Some days, like today, I wish to just raise a white flag and move back. Move back to all that’s familiar and more me, but I know there’s a reason I’m here in this city right now.
I’ll be back though. Bet.
Home is where the heart is and my heart is forever an Oregonian.
