My Birthday

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Please let me indulge in a pity party. My birthday was yesterday. My husband has alzheimers so he isn't expected to remember my birthday. However, neither did my children or coworkers. So, on the way home from work i bought a turtle sundae ice cream pie. I only ate a small piece though. Today I had a peanut butter milk shake. Now that was good! What have I learned? I have such a stressful job. But it is important to celebrate special days and recognize people. Are we (speaking to myself) really too busy to care for one another? I want to remember the hurt I felt when no one seemed to care about my birthday. I want to look for someone at church who is lonely and needs someone to care or someone at work. Maybe that's my mission? I used the ice cream to help make myself feel better. I will now dust myself off and go forward with my weight loss goal.

    So sorry your co-workers and children forgot your special day. It has to be hard with your husband's illness. Can be stressful for you I am sure. Hope as you said you had your dessert and then got back on track. You can do it!
    Keep smiling and keep motivated. Remember you are doing this for you!! You are
