Day 18 of a 30 Day Blogging Challenge: What Would Happen If I Won the Lottery?

January 12, 2020 0 Comments

Isn’t this everyone’s dream? Yet, we hear all kinds of reports about how lottery winners are quickly broke again. I’d think it would be hard to not start spending money on so many things you’ve always wanted.

I, too, have a long list of “if I had the money, I’d…….” But in reality, I’m not sure very much would change. I would still be raising these children. I’d still be surrounded by my wonderful family and community. And I’d still be working and speaking and praying about how we can all make this world a more whole and healthy place.

I think there are some ways that more funds would make things a bit easier… a car that’s not on the brink of extinction (and one that’s big enough for all of us together), a cleaning service (please!) that would give me more time for self-care, and a chance to give back or give forward all of the wonderful financial support I’ve received over the years. This support has included (but not exclusive to) extra gifts for the kids, scholarship money for classes and camps, and folks pitching in for physical help – babysitting, driving, yard work. All of it has been crucial in many ways, but it would be a joy to be on the giving end of things!

Short and sweet… I have never lived for money. In fact, choosing to add more children to my family was a very conscious decision to live lower income instead of furthering my career. It’s been a journey of faith, hope and gratitude!
