Life is truly unpredictable. Some days are very good, some days are ok, some are bad, some days are boring and full of irritation and some days are truly magical and mesmerizing. These beautiful and magical days of our life make life worth living. Even the remembrance of those beautiful and happy days brings a smile on our face. One such day of my life was 31st December 2010. It was the happiest day of my life. That time my Christmas Holiday was going on and I went for shopping with my mother to a shopping mall.
There at the entrance of the mall was a man who was selling lottery tickets, the gifts for prize winners were also unique- first prize was a car and a special card with which one could shop up to one lakh at the same shopping mall, second prize was a ten day holiday trip to Europe with family and Rs. 50,000 cashes and the third prize were 3 days Goa trip and Rs 25,000 cash. I don’t know why but my sixth sense told me I have better chances of winning the first prize, so I ask my mother to get a lottery ticket for me.
At first my mother was reluctant to buy the ticket, but later on she agreed when I continually irritated her by my requests and kept on saying her please, please, please all the time! After purchasing the lottery ticket, I came to know that the winners will be announced today itself. And when I inquired about the time of the announcement they said within half an hour the winner will be declared. Luckily I was last person buying the ticket, as after that the counter was closed.
While my mother was busy shopping, I was waiting for the announcement of the winners and visualized my name being announced as the first prize winner. It was truly a magical moment when my name was announced as the first prize winner within half an hour. Neither I nor my mother could believe it. We both were ecstatic. It was really the most beautiful moment of my life. Everyone was clapping and cheering for me. But the adventure did not end here after winning the car and the card we came to know that we have to shop for 1 lakh in one single day!! So my mother called my Dad and brother.
All four of us shopped like mad, I brought all my favorite toys, my favorite dresses and even a party dress for the evening new year party, my mother bought cosmetics, perfumes and dresses for herself and my brother also bought some toys and book and few dresses for himself and my father got a watch and a perfume and some shoes and shirts for himself. It was not only the best day for me, but also for my entire family. We all came out from the shop with smiling faces and filled our brand new car with our shopping bags, while my father drove the car. We still could not believe what had just happened.
My one single decision had really bought fortunes in our life. Everyone at my home thanked me and said that they are truly blessed to have me as a part of the family. Next we all got ready for our new year’s party. My mother was looking stunning in her newly purchased dress and makeup and so was my father and we kids. We all were looking fantastic plus the smile on everyone’s face added the extra glow. At the party, I danced a lot and enjoyed great food and my parents told everyone that I had won a lottery. Everyone at the party congratulated me. We even played games at the party.
As fortunes were already favoring me, I won Rs. 1000 from the house game as well. It was amazing. I felt as if an angel has waved the magical lucky dust on me. We cut the cake at midnight, and the cake too was super tasty. Thus, 31st December 2010 is by far the happiest and most memorable day of my life, on that day I felt as if I was floating in the air, till date whenever I see my car, a smile automatically comes on my face reminding me of the best day of my life. I won the lottery, shopped everything from my wish list, got a car for my family, danced and ate great food and celebrated the New Year.
