I was fantasizing about winning $500 million in the recent Powerball when a thought struck me…all the money in the world cannot guarantee happiness and another fantasy came over me where I could trade the millions to go back in time and have my Mom pre-dementia.  I always have a tough time around holidays as I miss her more at these times (she is still alive, but I mean I miss her being “herself” not fully dependent on me).  How nice it would be to go to her house with my kids and visit, with food and treats.  She was so happy to be a Grandmother and doted on my Son.  I miss those holidays.
