No Money Boundaries

We were on our anniversary trip celebrating 25 years of marriage. A generous gift from family allowed us to book an all expenses paid vacation to the beautiful U.S. Virgin Islands. We were staying in a gorgeous resort on the island of St. John that had several private beaches, easy access to town, and all the expected amenities available.

We went into town to explore and do a little shopping. The first store we entered was a large jewelry shop with very expensive items. My wife began browsing at the smaller trinket counters and I headed straight for the grand display case. After a short time, she came over to where I was standing and whispered “Are we going to buy something here?”

“Whatever you want. We have no limit. Do you think this piece looks nice?” I answered.

She blinked hard for a moment then drew me aside by pulling on my arm. “We don’t need any of this. I’m just as happy with a tourist souvenir to remember this trip as I would be with a fabulous one-of-a-kind specially designed piece of jewelry.”

I was jolted back to the reality of our lives in that moment.
We have everything we need with each other.
No extravagant spending required.
