Why am I so lame?

It has come to my attention as of late, that I'm stilll pretty selfish, a perfectionist and painfully aware of my faults and insecurities...all with no intention of changing! Why you ask? I'm just too tired! Ha! No, I'm trying... just moving very slowly as to not jolt the rotation of the Earth (because it does revolve around me and my problems) so, instead of complain right now, I'm just going to list some things I'm grateful for:
1.) Lisa Cardon
2.) Lisa Cardon recommending I read Jane Eyre (small ha)
3.) Isla's baby toes
4.) My washer and dryer
5.) This one should really be at the top...Heavenly Father forgiving me and then forgiving me again, and still loving me!
6.) Tim forgiving me and then forgiving me again and still loving me? Ya, pretty sure still loving me.
7.) Ben wanting to go back to school thus re-igniting Tim's little fire to definitely go back to school too. I'm ready!

I think we all begin to realize the extent of our personal selfishness the day we bring a little baby into the world.

I know I struggled and sometimes resented the amount of my energy, time, sleep, etc. my firstborn took from me and hated myself even more for the selfishness. The good news? You grow- and little by little we become less selfish, more Christlike people.

I just hope I don't have to have ten kids before I finally learn to give up my selfishness!!!! :-D

Something about being sleep deprived makes EVERYTHING seem bigger and worse than it really is. Speaking from current circumstances... :)
