Is that a lot of money?

I’ve mentioned before that my mom did have a stroke of luck and won a $100,000 on a scratch-off lottery ticket. Sadly, the winnings came after my dad was already fairly well-advanced in his dementia. We are very grateful for the extra funds that helped pay for his last year of care, however.

But when Mom showed Dad the winning ticket, and told him that she had won a $100,000, she says Dad looked at her with a wide-eye, child’s like innocence and asked, “Is that a lot of money?”

Mom answered, “To us it is.”
