Not Me Monday!



It's that time again! Not ME Monday is probably the only good thing about Mondays!


This weekend I did NOT decide to stop running because it was a "holiday"...Nope not ME!

I did NOT come home on Saturday and do NOTHING. Nope, not ME. I would never just lay in bed on blogger, and watching movies that made me cry. And I definitely did NOT ignore my family when they asked me to come downstairs and spend time with them. I am definitely NOT that self absorbed and selfish.

I most certainly did NOT remember that I had yet to do the newsletter for Relief Society this month. And I definitely did NOT decide that it would just have to wait while I did absolutely NOTHING this weekend. Nope, not ME!

I did NOT eat queso and tortilla chips for dinner on Friday night because there was no one home, nobody had made dinner, and I was certainly NOT that lazy. No way, not ME.

I did NOT feel relieved when I made a BIG sale at work on Saturday. And I do NOT get to FINALLY cash my checks, which I have NOT been holding for 3 weeks now. Definitely not ME.

I do NOT miss Mr S with everything inside me. I do NOT get all self pitying and self loathing when I cannot talk to him. I do NOT HATE when he has to go to St Thomas and I do NOT HATE that the phones don't work right. And I do NOT get grumpy with my family because of it. Not ME. Never.

Gracie did NOT drive me crazy this weekend. She did NOT make me sit in the cold and rain with her while she played in the yard instead of going potty. I did NOT get mad at her because she climbed various furniture until she got on to the bookshelf and she did NOT eat my Cadbury Christmas Egg that I got in my stocking and had been saving as a special treat for ME one day. I was absolutely NOT furious. And I do NOT feel like a two year old saying that. Nope, not ME!

I did NOT eat a HUGE piece of chocolate cake last night. I also did NOT sit around and talk with my family for a little while. Then decide I needed another piece for good measure. I did NOT justify this by saying I was going to be good the rest of this week. I would NEVER do that. Nope, not ME!

I came across thsi scripture today. It made me think of you the quote I shared with you, so here it is:

Romans 8:18. . . the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
