Whoever said it was NUTS!!
It would buy me a lot of happiness. Get a new house that Terry doesn't have to worry about repairing. Likewise for the car. Several family members need stuff and I would be so HAPPY to give it to them. Medical help for Terry that is out of out financial reach. My grands can use some of that too. My daughter could use a house...no more renting and moving and single parent struggling. How about the Pet Refuge? I KNOW they would love to share my HAPPINESS!! I would be so HAPPY to make some little kids happy...and some elders too.
Recently the large Mega Million jackpot was won by someone around the Indianapolis Indiana area. The winning number was drawn the day my brother in law passed through on his return trip from visiting family in Tennessee. We got a lot of mileage in joking about him being the one that won and keeping it a secret from us. It was during the time my father in law was in the hospital so I saw him everyday. One day I brought him a picture of a house blueprint from the paper and asked him to add it to our wish list. Sometime in the conversation each day someone would pop up and say Glenn will buy it. We even planned to tell him that he had a great disguise when they showed the winner on TV. DANG WINNERs had an agent accept it in order to conceal their identity.. You can do that in Indiana if you accept the prize as an LLC. So, we had great fun teasing Glenn. It's always nice to dream about how you would spend that kind of money. For me it's mostly about how I can make others as happy as I would be.
How about you. Do you play the lottery and dream about how you would spend the money? It seems like those jackpots increase to high values pretty quickly now. Do YOU think money can buy happiness?
On second thought, maybe money can't buy me happiness, but ENHANCE my happiness!
