Funny little lesson

(Jami speaking.)

Well, Tuesdays are what is called my “wife’s day” where I get a whole day off from YWAM. I spend most of my time doing laundry for the week, cleaning the place, and making a meal for my hubby. (Yes, i am learning to cook, crazy huh?)

Anyhow, here is the story. Many of you know i absolutely l o v e starbucks, but you also know i am a missionary, so i rarely splurge, because, well there isn’t much to splurge. Haha. So yesterday I decided to go through our entire house, and if I found enough dimes to buy a starbucks then i would get one, and if not i would live without one. So i searched, and sure enough i actually ended up finding $5 in dimes! I was so thrilled!

So I drove to my bank to exchange the $5 in dimes for 1 dollar bills. This ended up taking me 15 minutes, because they had me come in and roll the dimes. As i sat rolling them, I realized I was too embarressed to hand the dimes to the starbucks people. So silly I know.

So i finished. Headed to starbucks, and got me a white chocolate mocha latte. A whopping $4 dollars of my find. As i drove away i couldn’t even drink it because i got this sick feeling in my stomach. A nice little tummy ache called Guilt. I just spent probably an hour of my time searching for money for a starbucks. . . yikes eh?

Well, long story short…i got home, hadn’t taken a sip, because i knew it would upset my already upset stomach. So i stuck it in the microwave for later. Two hours later i realized it was in there, went to heat it up, and our microwave decided to break this lovely day.

The moral of this story. . . well there are probably a few. If you have to search so hard to find the money in the first place, you probably shoulnd’t spending that money you find.

Secondly, don’t be embarressed to hand $5 worth of dimes to the cashier, because as a missionary you’ll most likely be doing this a lot.

Thirdly, don’t feed an “addiction” cause you’ll get a tummy ache called guilt.

Thought you’d find this funny.

Love, Jami
