Should I be jealous?
One of my dreams in life has been a trip to Italy with my husband. Imagine the art, the food, the beauty. It always has sounded romantic. We have definitely done some amazing trips (cashing in on frequent flyer miles), but never to Italy. I have tried to convince him for years to do a trip to Italy. Last year I ended up cashing in frequent flyer miles and going to Italy with my mom and sister because my husband didn’t want to go. What’s up with that?
So the other day my husband let me know that he was booking a trip to Spain and Italy in June. Perfect, I thought. That is a beautiful time for a trip to southern Europe. What a lovely surprise for my birthday right? Oh wait a second… this is a work trip for some big concerts to get kids sponsored and to help the Compassion partners in Europe. Sure it is… That means I am not going. So, who is going with my husband on this grand experience? Of course, he is going on this trip with Spence Smith. Humm… I am getting suspicious now. I know that Spence works on the music team with Compassion and sure… this is the job, but I would like to point out some of the best dates my husband has had in life has been with Spence. There was Ireland, England, New Zealand, Peru, El Salvador and Australia. What about me guys? I am the wife. I will volunteer myself for this trip; you don’t even have to pay me to go. My husband has assured me all he will see is a concert venue but come on! I told him that I could just come along for moral support. I could be valuable on this trip.
Ok I will get over it but I expect two things. First, you best be getting a ton of kids sponsored. I will be checking out the sponsorship reports. Second, I expect a gift. A nice gift too. Spence, don’t think you are off the hook, you and Stephen need to do a little shopping for me.
