Selfishness

I love Dark Chocolate M&Ms! I loved them when they came out in Star Wars bags back when Episode 3 was in the theater. I'm not one to root for the bad guys...I just don't...so getting past the fact that the Dark Side Ms were the ones I loved was not easy. I had a bag set aside for my special treat since I didn't know if I'd ever find any again.

Then comes July. I had my precious Alex by c-section, so I was in the hospital for a while. Both Roger's mom and my mom kept Katrina at various times for us. Roger's mom often watches our kids (just Katrina at the time) at our house, so she can put them to bed. While she was here with Katrina, she found my special treat, opened the bag, and gave some to Katrina (I'm guessing...she's not the type to have just eaten them herself)

We get home with our sweet son and within a day or so I find MY M&Ms open. I got very upset...I know I can blame hormones a little...but I spent more time on this than anyone ever should have. Thankfully, I wasn't so whacked out that I brought it up to her.

So, these special dark Ms brought out the dark side in me...I call it sin nature. Food is one of those things that I find myself getting selfish about, and so I work hard to give my man the bigger portions, make sure my kids get what they want to eat, and try to always think of others first before the food. I'm so glad that God reminds me that I still have things to learn, and that he loves me no matter my mistakes.

Don't let her fool you, she loves to root for the bad guys - and she has the hots for Hayden Christensen. ;)

I can completely relate. There is a special kind of chocolate covered cherry that comes out at Christmastime and if anyone touches those, I will FREAK OUT! You are very giving in other areas, I think it is ok to be a little selfish about a novelty candy!
