So to give you a little background, I am usually the one who sends gifts and makes it her business to be on top of birthday cards. I sometimes beat myself up if I wasn't thoughtful enough and manfriend is constantly telling me that people aren't usually as conscientious as me, that I shouldn't get so upset. On the same subject, I will often get my panties in a bunch when people aren't thoughtful of others, aren't thoughtful of me. So that's part of my life.
Anyways, do you know how touched to the core I was that people were thinking of me? Just this week, my mom sent me a new pair of Dansko clogs, my friend Nathalie sent me a book on taking my hobby to the next level, my Aunt Nancy sent me a get well card, Alicia brought me some new earrings... and there is more but you get the idea.
What I am trying to say with all of this is that even when you don't think people are thinking of you, they actually are. They might not always send a gift or a card but you are in their thoughts, which is pretty important (in my book). So don't worry about it. I'm trying not to.
