  • "Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul." -Thomas Moore

What if….

 I know…it is a long, long, long shot…but what if you won?  Hubby insisted this was going to be the winning ticket, to solve the financial problems.  Obviously since I am still sitting here in my pj’s, drinking my coffee, and calm as could be, IT WASN’T.

But what if…..

1.  I would build a 5 bedroom home on my land.  I would have a studio for myself.  Each of my kids would have their own rooms, and I would have my own bedroom.  I would buy all new furniture for the new house.  We would add a pool to the backyard. 

2.  I would pay off my only two long term bills…my student loan and my credit card

3.  I would buy a truck.  This truck to be specific.

4.  I would pay off the small amount my parents owe on their mortgage and their new truck.  I would also give them a good chunk of money any time they wanted it.

5.  I would give my older brother and younger brother some money to pay off all their bills.

6.  I would set up accounts for the kids to pay for college, buy a house, or whatever they choose when they are over 18.

7.  I would donate to charity.  Habitat for Humanity, my church, and probably a few others.

8.  I would give my ex some money, and his parents.  They have always been very good to me.  And adore my kids.

Not too shabby.  Nothing too greedy and fancy…just a simple, easier life.  Would all that money make me happy…no.  I am not silly enough to think that.  But it would solve a few problems I face right now.

So if you could win a couple million…what would you spend it on?

Have a blessed day!
