I Must Go Shopping

One of these days, I must go shopping. I am completely out of self-respect. I want to exchange some self-righteousness I picked up, the other day, for some humility which they say is less expensive and wears better. I want to look at some tolerance which is being used for wraps this year.

Someone showed me some pretty samples of peace. We are a little low on that and one can never have too much of it. And, by the way, I must try to match some patience that my neighbor wears. It is very becoming to her and I think it might look well on me. I might try on that little garment of long-suffering they are displaying. I never thought I wanted to wear it, but feel myself coming to it.

Also, I must not forget to have my sense of appreciation mended, and look around for some inexpensive, everyday goodness. It is surprising how quickly one’s stock of goodness is depleted.
