My son is so excited about the Powerball being so high, he keeps asking what I would do if I won. I told him the first thing I would do is not tell him because the whole world would know. I told him I would buy a rancher he looked at me and said that is too much work to take care of that. I told him it was a one floor house like Grandmom’s. He thought I was talking about a farm. He cracks me up sometimes. Really though if I won I would open a place where teens could go and hang out like we used to have.
I really feel part of the problem in this world is with us parents all working to survive there is no one watching the teenagers. I know some towns have boys and girls clubs or other organizations, but what about when they are closed. Think back to when we were kids, we were never in the house if we wanted to play we had to go to the local arcade. We played, tag, baseball, or even just walked around. We had to use our imaginations to get things.
I can only hope that I have instilled in my children enough so they know that in order to have nice things and to be able to survive they need to work hard.
