Conversations of "if we win the lottery" are always very fun. What would you do first? Where would you go first? Sometimes I say something very stupid, like.."is that all it is?" Jackpots around here start out at 3 million. This dejected whining comment always makes Mr. Frank laugh. So then I laugh too and....duh! Yes exactly, thank you very much, nothing at all wrong with a whole bunch of money in our pockets. Thank you very much. Tahiti is our fantasy, maybe mine but Mr. Frank will tag along too. Recently we have considered a European cruise, discussing a first class ticket for one of the flights. Fantasies and dreams and desires and goals. A bit of a trickle down effect to be sure. We are allowed and encouraged to handle our fantasies, with a whole lot of reality. Precious dreams are not to be squashed. Our desires are usually right there in front of our noses. Goals. Those are the ones we have to be very careful with. I believe the power of my voice. Saying makes it so. Oh yes, what does come to mind? "Be careful what you wish for". So, what if I SAY I do not want to die here? I know this for my fact. A goal. Discounting the bus and the plane theory, ( ok yeah and any other wild 'if/whens') I cannot fail at my goal. Right? Absolute power. Excepting that I have no power. I could be in Tahiti and get hit by a bus. Ta-Da! I could be on a cruise in the med and get landed on by a plane. Ta-Da! There is a very real comfort in all of that for me because I have this behemoth faith. I hope when I go, I can get in a..."ok, fine, here works for me". I am an optimistic realist. An over the top positive person that is smart. I hope either your face is all squirreled up or you are laughing. I don't know what it means either. I have bad moments, sad minutes. I see most all things bad as a movement towards better. I don't do heaven or hell. It's all right here for me so I'm taking care of it now as best I can.
222 million in a power ball we are a part of. Someone in Ohio I think got it. We have no idea who participates in it. Thought is was just adjoining states, shared borders or something. With that kind of moolah, I would be tempted to try to save Haiti..........or something?
My Dad always said you have to play to win. We forget that part alot.
