I recently ended a longtime friendship and I'm feeling kinda iffy about it now.
Here's the story: My friend was having a birthday party for her son. I was not able to make it because we are in the process of moving. I had told her the week before that I may not be able to make it. After the party, she posted on facebook that she was thankful for all the people who showed and realizes who her true friends are and who really cares about her and her kids. I left her an inbox message telling her that my feelings were hurt by her post (I was just trying to be honest and resolve the issue). She made me feel worse all over again. She was not at my son's birthday party the month before but I would have never treated anyone like that over a birthday party. I ended the friendship because I felt like it was a slap in the face to post it on facebook for everyone to read. Even if the post wasn't aimed directly at me, she was still putting me in that category of people who don't care about her. I feel somewhat better for having ended the friendship because I have went out of my way numerous times for her and I felt like she should've never done that. If she had a problem, she should've talked to me or anyone else about it instead of posting it for everyone to see. Are my feelings and ending the friendship justified?

I think you did the right thing ending the friendship. She knew you were moving, and she should not have expected you to drop everything and go to her child's party. SHE seems to have forgotten that SHE did not attend your child's party - so why call you out on something she did as well? If she was so upset about you not being at the party then she should have had the guts to talk directly to you about it. It was childish, petty, rude and hurtful of her to make that comment on fb- she knew you would see it and she intended to make you feel bad by posting that.
