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.
