But then God really convicted me for my selfishness. Big time. My pity party become a pit in my stomach. Instead of being thankful for all the blessings in my life, I spent the day feeling sorry for myself. I wasted hours of my precious life pouting. Acting like a four year old. I am not proud. So let me take a moment to publicly apologize.
To my handsome husband: Thank you for being faithful, and for being contrite about forgetting, and for listening to me whine and complain and fuss that day, and for promising to make next year better!
To my gorgeous, healthy children: Thank you for the hugs, and the laughs, and for coming to spend time with me!
To my awesome friends and family who did take time to wish me a Happy Birthday, or give me a gift , or a phone call: Thank you! The gifts were an awesome surprise and your wishes made my day more special than you will ever know.
And finally, to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ: Thank you for forcing my flawed soul to empty me of ME, and for loving me despite my big ol' pouty face.
