Expectations

It came in her Christmas letter...

a declaration of expectations.

"If I don't expect anything, I am never disappointed," she wrote.

It's an interesting philosophy.  And, I'm trying to decide if it is a good thing or not.

Shouldn't we expect people to show gratitude?

Shouldn't we expect appreciation for something we have done?

But, then, if that is why we are doing it, that is not right either....so maybe MaryLou has a point.

Keep your expectations low, and you'll rarely be disappointed.
