So since we’re in town for a bit, I decided to check out news from the area. We have this thing in my family – a tradition that was started by my great, great-grandmother. Wherever we are, we are not allowed to leave without learning something about the place. Jayden is now just about old enough to appreciate and enjoy this.
Well, it was sure perfect timing as that morning in the local newspaper, the Post Register I read about a disabled man from Idaho Falls who’d won the lottery, cashing in $200,000! Winner Donny Jones was said to have been “in shock” and of course delighted at the news. His plans are to pay off his bills first. What lovely news. This really was just what we needed. I feel like there’s so much bad news around the whole time that this was just lovely.
I shared the whole thing with Jayden. I asked him what he would want to give someone with a disability if he could give them anything in the world. He paused for a while and then said, “something to make them really smile.” Well, this lottery winning ticket sure did that for Jones. Just keep these great feel-good stories coming Idaho Falls!
