Living LARGE! ((Is a lesson we all could use!))
Have you heard this story?
There was an article in People Magazine and in the Toronto Star. Violet and Allen Large, both in their late 70s, met each other in 1964 and fell in love.
The Canadian couple has purchased two lottery tickets every week since 1984. ((That’s a LOT of years and a LOT of lottery tickets!))
Last year, Violet called the lottery hotline to check out the winning numbers to find that they HAD WON $11.2 million dollars.
What did they do with it? What would YOU do with it?
They donated it all to doctors, their own country & family. They kept none for themselves. Not. A. Penny!
They say they are content with their ‘87 Dodge Diplomat Suburban & their 148 year old Victorian home,
Violet is quoted as saying:
“Money can’t buy happiness. We have everything we need-- I have Allen and he has me.”
You can read the rest of the story HERE.
Doesn’t this just warm your heart and bring hope to humanity!? I also love this statement:
“That money that we won was nothing. We have each other.”
