Ok, so I'm feeling a little sorry for myself. Pity party happening here.
So yesterday was my birthday, and until I went to work at 4 PM, not a single birthday wish came my way ( actually, I did get a couple birthday wishes from web sites I had joined, lol ). I should be used to this of course. Most of my family is JW. I'm not quite sure why I let it get to me. Maybe I was just hopng for a phone call or something, from a relative who may have remembered ( my dad isn't a jw, but god forbid he actually remember the day I was born ). I don't know.( it may also be due to the fact that Sunday is Mothers day, and I know that won't be acknowledged either ).
On a happier note, at work they all wished me a happy birthday. I even got a bouquet of flowers from one. And a good friend of mine got me a gift, one of the best ( and funniest ) gifts I ever got, because of the thought behind it. This friend and I were discussing childhood one day, and we got on the topic of toys. Any way, I had told her I didn't have many toys growing up because my family didn't have much money. I was envious of one of my friends growing up because she had the toy baby alive ( you had to feed this doll and then change her diaper ). So my friend Jen got me a doll ( it wasn't baby alive, but just as good ), one that talks and responds to your voice. Now how funny is that? Giving a woman who just turned 34 a childs doll for her birthday! But it was one of the best gifts I ever got, because of the thought behind it.
