PowerPhrase 300This one comes from Nora Hooper. Her friend told her she had won the lottery. What she meant by a winning lottery ticket was that her son had bought her a house.

Nora replied, "It sounds like you won the lottery when you had your son." Her friend responded, "I won the lottery with all my children."

Since then, Nora has been using:

  • I won the lottery

as a PowerPhrase. She prefaces references to any blessing or mention of something she's grateful for with that phrase.

I think Nora won the lottery when her friend treated her to that PowerPhrase.
