I WIN

I don't think about creating journals. Today, I decided that I was going to take a few moments and send a note to my FOJG buddy Hilde and then create a journal. For now, it is quiet in my house. That is rare.

cided to buy five mega million tickets. I had a feeling that I had something great coming my way. I thought about what I would do with over 600 million dollars. First, I would pay off the churches debts; second, I would have a school built for children like my son who has several learning disorders and ADHD; 3rd, I would give money to our private school to build a new K-12, 4th, I would pay off my daughters college loans and put money in a special account for each of them, 5th, I would buy a very large piece of property on the waterfront and build a home for myself and my family and then a short distance from me I would build a new home for my aging parents. I would make sure my siblings and in-laws would be financially rewarded. I had it all figured out. So, at 11:30 p.m., I nervously took out my lottery numbers. Out of five tickets, I had two numbers. Dang. I did not win a penny. I wasted $5.00.

Today, I had something great come my way. I won! I saw old friends and met new people. I laughed and smiled. Listened to birds. So I did not win money. I won something more valuable. Then to put the icing on the cake, I get to listen to Josh sing.

It is a great day.
