If you don't know the story. Cynthia Stafford won $112 million back in 2007 after doing lots of meditation about winning $112 million. Now, after filing for bankruptcy, I'm sure she's thinking, I can win again. My thoughts? NO CHANCE!

May the balls bounce in your favor!

      Oh yes, the Meditation Girl.  Well, we're all meditating on our numbers... somewhat... aren't we?

      But Cynthia, she will probably need to revamp her meditation practices.

         Cynthia is just one of many who meditate on their numbers and the jackpot amount.

         She split the jackpot with her Dad and brother. They helped her when she took in her deceased brother's children.  So she ended up with just $15 million.

         Cynthia is generous to a fault. A bit naive also. 

         Too bad she could not make the money last a lifetime.

         When you look at Bugattis, jewelry, private jets, donations to the arts she had no chance of life-long happiness with her winnings.

          I doubt it, she got lucky and treated the opportunity as if it happened every day rather than more likely once in a lifetime.

              Her chances of winning the lottery again are just as good as this guy.....

              Every day this man prays....."Please Lord, let me win the lottery".

              Morning, noon and night he prays..."Please lord, let me win the lottery".

              Many years later, the man dies and goes to heaven. There he see the Lord and asks why his prayers for him to win the lottery were never answered.

              The Lord said to the man...."You could have at least met me half way and bought a ticket!"

              Well, I have purchased my ticket, so PLEASE LORD, LET ME WIN THE LOTTERY!!!!! Big Grin Angel

                I've read a lot of lotto winner stories including Cynthia and a strange that I notice was around the date she won. Which was on May 11th and the next day was the 12th. Now when you combine those two dates you get 112 out of them without the extra 1. Also she said she visualised all her children around her when she wrote that number down. And then she won just a day before Mothers day. It could all be just a coincidence but it makes you wonder.

                    I hope she doesn't, she had her time as a lottery winner.  Now it's time for someone else to be a winner.

                          My guess is "No".

                          She had her turn. It's time for someone else to have their chance at managing millions!

                              Are any of them over 18 yet? I wonder if she set up a savings or something for the kids?

                              At least she got the brothers children out of the system and gave them some years of "the good life".
