Power Ball Winner - Why Not Me?

You know they're out there, those people who win the Power Ball and spend all their money on booze, partying and drugs... So, why can't I win the Power Ball and do something good with the money? I would, you know!

I would help other people, buy a house to live in, help others accomplish their dreams and give to the greater need. I'd be constantly helping others, showing them the heart of one who loves to give, and sharing the blessed wealth I'd have. Why? Because that's who I am.

This past week, my daughter shared with me that she and her husband were invited to stay with a friend after they moved out of their military housing. The friend didn't indicate they owed them anything for staying there, until her husband was off to his duty in the Middle East. But now, she has to pay half of their housing allotment which she needed to buy her plane ticket home, to her friend for staying there, after already buying groceries, several meals and other benefits while she was there. It's okay, she paid up. Her plane ticket is purchased and she's on her way home with her little boy.

She said, "Mom, I'd invite anyone to stay in my home under these circumstances and never charge them a dime. I don't understand the thought process that goes through people's greedy minds. If you're spending it all to accomplish something of value, someone will decide they need it more than you - EVEN when you've already given something to help them."

We talked for a while, her realizing that she'd already given something more. We understand the concept of giving, and we do... constantly. It just seems we give more than our share, even with a grateful heart.

So... About that power ball thing? Why not me?
