What Are We Expecting?

Two young women of my acquaintance once visited a city in a foreign country at the same time. And both happened to attend a service in the same church. Back home one of them enthusiastically related what a wonderful experience she had had at the service. The people had been very kind to her; she was even offered a lift. The other had nothing good to say. She had not met with any kindness; nobody had even seemed to notice her.

Entirely different impressions! Isn't this very often the case? What people experience at school, at the office, or at a dancing party may greatly vary. One person finds life full of wonderful adventures; another, although living in more favorable conditions, may say that life is a dull or even tragic affair.
