Can someone please help me use correct punctuation in this sentence. It is pretty simple but I want to make sure that it's correct because it goes in my personal statement.

"Her reason for this cruel behavior: I had not bought the exact brand of glue she had asked us to buy."

Is the colon correctly used or do I have to use a semi-colon?

I agree- use a colon here. ;-)
