Keep singing...keep acting...keep writing and keep loving.
That is worth MORE than a million dollars any day.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
(Patricia (Pat) Pascale 2:37pm November 20, 2013)

Good for you. I hope your daughter is in some kind of contact with her
father if she wants to be, but you made the right decision. She might have
ended up resenting you, but you left that door open for her. You're a great

What would I do with a million dollars? After I revived myself from passing out, I would pay off my house, buy a little house in a warm climate....Arizona sounds nice...hmmm. The rest would go into the bank for living....retired and never seems to be enough money does it? It sounds like you have done very have turned out a great daughter, have a career as a writer that you worked hard for and you have a good sense of humor...Have a great Thanksgiving.

I would share it with my family first
Patricia Lambert 11:24am November 21, 2013)

Susan. My daughter does have a relationship with her father. I
am friends with him as well, and so is my current husband. I
truly wanted what was best for HER! Thank you for saying that.
Kathy Wheeler 12:36pm November 21, 2013)

Thank you, Pat Pascale. I will indeed!
Kathy Wheeler 12:50pm November 21, 2013)

I guess, the usual things. I never really think about it. Pay off the house, take a trip, money to family.
Callie Hutton 1:02pm November 21, 2013)

Wonderful post. I love getting to know you. And now I understand your drive. Wishing you the best and I hope all your dreams come true.
Jessica Ferguson 2:31pm November 21, 2013)

Oh, Kathy. What a wonderful glimpse of what has made you the strong, confident, talented woman you are today. Thank you so much for sharing. And thank you for marching ahead toward your dreams until you finally reached them.
Anna Kittrell 2:36pm November 21, 2013)

I would like to help out my sisters and brother, take a few trips (Hawaii, Australia and Ireland), make sure my kids (both adults) have a solid bank account and then I would quit my job and follow a dream of being a writer. Thanks for letting me dream a little. By the congrats on the degree, that is something to be very proud of.
Annetta Sweetko 3:28pm November 21, 2013)

Thank you everyone. Annetta, You'll reach your dream too. It's
a day by day thing.
Kathy Wheeler 3:50pm November 21, 2013)

I congratulate you on the grit and determination that you had to raise your Daughter. I'm sure that you instilled those same qualities in her, and she'll go far in life. That makes her a survivor, no matter what she does!! After my Husband lost his job 6 years ago, and we lost everything we had trying to save it, along with losing everything we had (literally), if I had a million dollars, I wouldn't be parting with too much of it. We're still in the process of rebuilding our lives. The only things that come to mind is that I would get a second vehicle, because our current vehicle is 14 years old. I'd also purchase some furniture, because we had to leave ours behind after losing the house. I would also pay off our debts, and give some to charity, and probably bank the rest, in case of emergency. I'm sure my husband would have a ton of ideas, but I would sooner put the money in a CD or Money Market than spend it. It's an interesting question, and I enjoyed having a peek into your life. I'm sure that your Daughter is proud of you, and your ex is jealous. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

What a great dream! I would help my grandchildren and pay off their home loans and buy me a place in the country that is nice and quiet. I would donate some to veteran organizations and homeless shelters. Travel would be a nice perk.
Linda Harrison 8:30pm November 21, 2013)

I would build temples in my home country (Laos) and use most of it
to invest in land, gold and others ventures that'll make more
money. Some tiny part of it, I'd build a house for my parents so
they can have the house of their dreams. Something comfortable
with lots of graden space and a yard to walk around on.
Lazydrag0n Puff 10:55am November 22, 2013)

My dreams would include fixing up my house. I used to laugh
about a DIY saying that if you go in any room in a house,
there's always something needing to be done or fixed.
Alyson Widen 3:08pm November 22, 2013)

I think I would prepare for the future.
