That’s not FAIR!
From Sunday’s prayer of confession:
…we have coveted blessings you wisely and righteously gave to others.
I recall a friend handing out M&Ms to her children and mine.
All six of them stood around their little hands cupped and lifted as she dumped a few into each one from a big bag. As soon as they landed in her son’s palms he counted them and looked furiously at the others’ estimating they had more. He began whining about how unfair and without missing a beat his mother took them all away and said, next time don’t count. He didn’t, but I saw him stealing glances.
Margie needs to stop counting.
