Spending the Lottery

Do you ever think about what you would do with the money you won from the lottery that you never play? Yeah, me too! I have plans though for that elusive money...

I would first help my family out - buy my grandmother a car, she drives this old, oil hungry and it breaks my heart to see her have to drive that.. I would ask her is she wants a new home - she lives way out in the country and well, she says she could never live in town with people on top of her...

My daughter, Shelley, I would buy her a house, get a her a new car, and give her a cushion in life - maybe even pay for college for her

My son, Randall, if he is not using drugs, pay off his house, buy him a new car, and also give him a cushion (not likely to give him large amount of cash, too afraid of the temptation)

My mother, buy her a car as she too was left with a tired car and buy her a house and give her a cushion

This is me and my brothers and for them:

My brother Jeff, I would give him money - I suspect he would like a sports car

My brother Bradley - a house and small amount of cash

My aunt Cathy - pay off her mortgage

I would also give cash to a classmate that has had a rough life and she actually put a Go Fund Me account and my other classmates made fun of her privately - I would give her the money gladly.

My boss has a house for sale that I told her if I ever won the lottery I would purchase and donate to the rehab that my son went to for a half way house. This house would be perfect - it has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths - nestled way back in the woods with a creek behind it.

That is perfect for a halfway house - and it's elegant. Most of the time drug addicts, even recovered, have been treated badly by society because they have stolen and lied and did whatever it took for the drugs. I think it would be good to let them stay in a home that was nice and the peaceful. My son, once stayed a half way house that wasn't that nice but it was near the river and sat back and he loved it. He would say how felt closer to God when he went to the river to fish and just being away from all the reminders of the world just for a little while....

The house has a sun room that overlooks the creek - perfect for meetings and prayers

My son actually did the backsplash in here as well :)

I also have a couple of co-workers that I would help out and of course my bestie, Kristine!!
Then, I would start on remodeling my house - we will talk about that tomorrow. What would you do with lottery loot?
