I don't just like it when things go well.  I expect it.  It's amazing how quickly and effortlessly I can move from being grateful to being entitled. 

Sometimes I don't even bother with the grateful part.  I go right for entitled. 

Without really thinking about it, I get an attitude.  Like God owes me something just for showing up. 

And then get upset when I'm not magically excused from the problems of life.  

Which is why I need regular reality checks.  Like Sunday's first reading.
