I heard praise rightly given to fellow parishioners. As the day progressed, I could not deny the poor mood I was in. I was feeling unappreciated and worse yet, out-right jealous. I'm sure the world revolves around me.
Why wasn't I receiving kudos?
When truth set in I could recognize what a vain response this had been.
Was this me I had encountered?
I deserved the very distasteful glimpse of myself!
