When someone obtains a significant quantity of money unexpectedly, they typically begin to spend it irresponsibly by traveling, gambling and buying lots of costly but unneeded stuff.
Our heroine, Marina Herdsman, always anticipated winning the lottery and was an expert at handling her money.
She was married at age 22 and gave birth to a son at age 24. Marina’s beauty salon became her sole source of income when she became a single mother.
Our hero took care of everything at the salon. Herdsman had the good fortune to buy a lottery ticket.
Marina cooked in the kitchen while watching television when the winning numbers were revealed.
The woman clicked “pause” on the TV, and six numbers appeared on the screen. She believed that two or three digits matched.
Nothing has changed in their opinion of Marina after they discovered that she now has $1,000,000. Visitors to the winning party paid for their own costs.
She only changed one thing in her life, maybe because she was modest: she quit working at the salon and started doing what she liked best, working with animals.
