Writerly Wednesday – A Win-Win Situation

unnamed (26)

I sat at the end of the table watching our extended family as they laughed and dined. This year, Peter and I had our annual get-together catered so we could visit without the worry of food preparation and clean-up.

My stomach twisted with excitement. The grin on Peter’s face was as large as my own. I looked down at the envelopes beside me.  I could hardly wait for the meal to end.

“Could we please have your attention,” Peter finally announced.

The laughing and talking quieted and all eyes were upon us. I smiled nervously. “I have something for everyone,” I said and passed out the envelopes. “Open them when I tell you.” I sat back down beside my husband. “Okay,” I announced. The silence was cut by the sound of tearing envelopes followed by cries of joy.

We had won the lottery and now, so too did our family.
