I won $7 on my ticket...not remotely close to the $500+million, but a bit exciting when the bells rang. No doubt that amount of money would be life changing. I would be completely humbled--wouldn't change much on a daily basis, wouldn't spend recklessly...would set up family members for life, and would be generously philanthropic to the organizations I currently support. I might just splurge on a fantastic family vacation!
