Having to retire early (health reasons) and going from a lucrative career to living on disability has given me a whole new appreciation of the true value of money. I would build a new home suited to my physical needs and limitations (all one level, for starters!), then set up trust funds for my children, give money to my church and save what I could for future needs...and to help others in need.

First I would donate to our church, set up a scholarship in my son's who passed away 6 years ago honor. Then I might help our other son with some bills. We live a somewhat quiet life now, are needs are not as bad as others.

If I were to get a large windfall I would look for a new house to live. A ranch, instead of an older 3 floor home. The steps are a killer now that my back is bad and my husbands. Also room so my father who is almost 87 could live with us.
I would also help my children who needed it, grandkids, and great. I have some friends who need a little help too.
It would be nice to be able to pay someone to help with work around the house and repairs too. Also to make sure there is money to take care of my dogs if anything would happen to me and my husband.
Some money for the poor and bank some. I guess I'm looking for a lot.

I would pay off my bills, complete my divorce, see if I could get better health insurance and pharmacy insurance, buy a great condo or loft for me and one for my daughter, join a dating site, sign up for ancestry.com, hire a housekeeper, visit my son and his family in Virginia, take a fabulous vacation in Hawaii and bring all my family along, hire a personal trainer for yoga, find a solution to my neck pain and other illnesses, then do some kind of volunteer work, and set up trust funds for my kids and grandkids.  This would have to be a lot of money.

I was terminated from my job yesterday. There is no money in my account. We are behind on rent and facing eviction. This amount would come in handy. I have Diabetes and only have two bottles of insulin left..
