Around our house, the topic of winning the lottery comes up quite often. Matt and I talk about how nice it would be to not have any bills, or not to work, or be able to share the wealth with others. When life gets super busy, and overwhelming, it is not uncommon for one of us to say that we are going to win the lottery! Of course we know the chances are slim to none, but it's not a bad dream to have!
The other day, while the kids and I were hanging out in the living room, enjoying a lazy morning, the topic of the lottery came up. Anna told me that once, a long time ago, when they were all quite young, all three of the kids woke up in the morning before Matt and I, got dressed up in their very best clothes, convinced that that was the day when our family was going to hit the jackpot! She said they were completely shocked when it didn't happen!! Oh my goodness!!! I had no idea that they had done this many years ago. I love my kids and I love the way they are!!! They're older now, and understand that the chances are slim that we'll ever win, and they're ok with that!!! We'll always have the dream, and will probably always mention the lottery in the tough times, but we're good with what we have!
