Jackpot!

A few days ago, Carolyn and Jim McCullar of Ephrata, Washington won $190,000,000 in the Mega Millions lottery.  Yup, that’s a lot of zeros…and, yes, they’re rich all right.

I, too, am rich, but I’m blessed with priceless things that all that money can’t begin to buy--an outpouring of love, care and concern from friends and family following my recent surgery.  With Facebook posts, emails, IMs, cards, and phone calls, and with visits, homemade meals, sweets, books, music, comfy jammies, and prayers for healing, my companions have come forth from near and far.  I am overwhelmed by the depth of their generosity and spirit, and I am truly grateful.

Although the McCullars may have hit the jackpot, ‘tis I who truly has the riches.
