It Wasn’t About The Sausages

I fell out with my mum over some vegan sausages last week. I was being greedy and wanted to eat them all for brunch, when she told me that we could use them for a bolognese one night during the week. 

I had a mard and feigned offence. This upset my mum and blew the whole situation out of proportion. I went to the bathroom to calm down and think about how a few sausages had caused so much drama.

It wasn’t about the sausages. I wanted to have it my way and to be in control.  

It was a Sunday and we had just been to (virtual) church. One of the readings had been about generosity and sharing in community. How quickly I seem to forget the message of the Gospel!

Has there been a situation recently that revealed something about yourself to you?
