I need help with a moral decision.
Today, after coming home from the barn, there was a letter waiting for me. It was a heartfelt letter from my uncle that talked about how much my aunt loved me and wants me to be happy and do what I love. My aunt was an amazing woman who always put others before herself. I loved her, and it broke my heart into little pieces when she passed away from ovarian cancer four months ago. Her will said that she was going to give a large chunk of her money to all of her nieces and nephews to pursue whatever they wanted. The envelope I received contained a check for $2500...
I really don't know what to do with this money. The note said to do anything with it, and the first thing that comes to mind is a tack trunk and cover. I've been wanting this for a while, but $800 is just too much to spend for the pair. Now that I have this money I kind of want to spend it on the trunk. For some reason I feel like its wrong. Should I put it to something more meaningful? I just feel guilty that it would be spent on something I was planning to save up for...I really need help.
Any response is appreciated. Thanks.
