I'm a literary contest winner

The ironic thing is that I'm not really sure of the worth of the contest. I entered New Milleniums short, short story contest a few months ago with a piece called "Wheelchair Tenant." Today I got an email from the journal, congratulating me on winning an Honorable Mention. I'm so new to all this online literary stuff that I don't know whether to be happy, proud or embarrassed. Here's the email text:

Congratulations on Your Award
