The grand prize

Red and Warren, September 2007

I stayed up Wednesday night missing Red, watching TV, and playing computer solitaire while waiting to see if I had won $1 billion. The numbers were drawn, and what do you know, the 292 million to 1 odds did not shine in my favor.

I went back to missing Red, and I realized that I have already won the lottery once in this lifetime, so I shouldn’t be greedy.

Twenty-six years with this sweet, smart and compassionate woman are worth more than a billion dollars anyway.
