Just to be Noticed

So, twice now, I've witnessed and even had interaction with those who'll do anything to get the clout for their "good works", but they'll take over and run while others are tryin' to put forth the effort in good conscience, makin' them feel unneeded. To be made to feel that you don't matter and you're not good enough, when all you're strivin' to give of yourself is your best. It's really gettin' to me. In the 1st incident, it was put forth that there was no-one to help transfer certain expensive items from one place to another and back again. This would be of benefit to our children. Upon findin' out that there's no response from others, bein' uncertain that I could put myself out there, I did so anyway...I was gonna come out of my shy self, not to gain recognition, but to do for others in the time of need. So, along with my son, we prepare for doin' so and arrive to get to work when, out of nowhere, these gruff guys decide they're gonna take over, very haughtily. It's what they were doin' and how they were doin' so that got under my skin, though. It's like they couldn't be shown up, let alone by a female. It's like they're just there to have that "I'm the coolest, most reliable parent in the world, and y'all others just suck..so, sit down, I'm gonna be noticed for what I'm doin' for my kid." attitude. It ain't worth puttin' up a fuss, either. A similar thing happened last night, except for when all us others were asked, we left them to do what they always try to do, while they complained and showed their true nature of not really carin' to 'cause they wanted to, instead. I don't understand this. Why can't someone just BE out of the kindess of their heart and NOT put on a show. I mean, what reward are you hopin' for, and why must that be what it comes down to? Why put others down in the process of attainin' status? I'm reminded that this is the way it is all over the world since the beginnin' of time, though. I see how this takes its toll throughout our lives as we grow through school, our occupations, and most especially when we're involved with a church. That's the least likely place one would expect to find it, but Heaven forbid if we don't do this and such duty to get through those pearly gates. Really. I can tell ya, it doesn't matter what you do, if it ain't 'cause your heart desires to serve others in the light of God, you'll go nowhere fast. I just don't see what the big deal is, but I'm tired of havin' my feelings hurt by those who think they're so top notch and "holier than thou". There's no need. And, I'm thankful that God's allowed me to see not to become upset and to realize that my heart's in the right place. He's so good to me when I feel so bad. And, that's what really matters.


Well, here's some good news.......
