08:26 am - A little sad
I find myself a little sad this morning for all the wrong reasons.

I was not invited to a particular social function that some of my friends were. I do not blame the hosts of the event for this. They had many guests, many of them from out-of-town and their home is only so big. Not to mention that food and drink for that number of people had to be overwhelming. I know they agonized over the guest list.

And if I had been invited, I would have been unable to attend.

So it's silly, you see, to feel like this. To be sad that I wasn't included in a fun event that I would have been unable to attend in any case. I report this feeling to help exorcise it.

There will be another function that I will be able to attend some of this evening. That will also help me move past this feeling. For now, I'll rustle up some breakfast.

I certainly hope the hosts don't feel bad. I posted to get my feelings out in the open, so I could examine them. I don't think they should have done things any differently.

While I'm sad I missed things, I don't feel any "ranking" of friendship. I know the hosts like me and I consider them good friends. If anything, I think their leaving me off the invites is a reflection of how well they know me; that it would be difficult for me to attend so many functions in so short a time.
