Everyone wants to win the lottery, and I am quite sure many of us know exactly how we will spend it.  The question that I have which I do not expect an answer to --- is that when you do win how much do you share.

For example, an extra 250.00 came in today.  Does all of that 250.00 get spent on yourself, or do you say let me share a little something with someone be it spouse, charitable organization (i.e. Salvation Army) a person in need, (maybe give them an extra $20) or does all that remain in your own hands. 

To those who give they shall be given.  I am only saying this because when we win too often, in my opinion, we fail to share.  We think about the bills, about what we have spent on the lottery, we always want more things, latest gadget, often our cars costs more than our homes, we want image.  But image does very little if there is no substance.  How many of you can define yourself without  using descriptives.  For example I am a female, but how about I am soft as a rose, who skin feels as soft as the rose petal.  The rose that I am.  Let us loose ourselves a little, in order that we may find ourselves.  Maybe think a little different, try something a little different. 

A new year is coming--fresh start, just like each minute of the day offers an opportunity for a fresh start.

    Dartiger, you brought up a good point.  There's a lot of ways we can share our good fortunes such as putting the extra $20 in the kettle.  And a little random act of kindness doesn't hurt in the Karma department....might even get you another win.

            Actually, you should keep it all because you're only getting back a fraction of what you've spent on lottery tickets.
