Yesterday, I purchased my lottery tickets in the hopes of winning the millions just like many other people. I even thought to buy tickets in different stores and towns just in case they announced the towns where the winners were purchased, I might have a chance. Silly, I know but everyone has their own strategies. People choose their birthdays, anniversaries, divorce dates, I chose quick picks from different locations. I thought it was funny when I purchased the tickets and talking to the Lottery Agent at Foodtown, how the price of my dream went up. It used to be a dollar and a dream and now that doubled to two dollars a dream. This gave us a little chuckle how these days it even costs us to dream.
Last night I went to bed without checking my lottery numbers so I can dream one more time about all the money I could win and what I would do with it. I dreamt that I would buy a boat for my husband who loves the ocean and fishing and an RV for me to hook the boat up to. Of course, I thought about which family member I would help out and which charity I would donate to, and what I would do for my parents, sister and in-laws.
I woke up kind of knowing that I did not win the lottery and was not the rich woman I had dreamt about. I rolled over and first thing I saw when my eyes opened was my husband and I couldn’t help but smile. As wonderful as those dreams were, I realized how rich I truly am. I have my husband who treats me like I am a Queen, two children who are totally everything to me and we are thank God healthy. In recent weeks and with the holidays coming up, I am so grateful that I have my house, power, good friends and a terrific family. I might not have had the winning ticket, but I certainly am one of the luckiest people to be blessed with so much. Wishing everyone warm wishes and a happy, healthy and rich holiday season!
