Moms Winning The Lottery Ain’t No Big Deal?
It’s a big deal when women, especially mothers, win the lottery and personally, and I’m not a feminist, but I think they deserve it for doing the most challenging work in the world – caring, loving, cleaning, cooking, washing, feeding, educating, listening and what not. The list goes on and on, and so when mothers win the lottery it makes me so happy I want to party! This article is dedicated to all those amazing mothers, all of you whether you’ve won a lottery jackpot or not! This is to give you hope and to let you know that you’re never too late to begin playing the lottery!
Lottery Winner #1 – Marie Holmes
In February 2015, this mother was watching cartoons with her children when she won the lottery! Marie, however, didn’t know that she would be bringing home $188 million until a friend posted the winning lottery numbers. When she realized that she had the winning numbers, she couldn’t believe it and so to make sure, the 26-year old immediately requested her mother to double check. When she was sure she said,
“I scared my kids because I was jumping up and down in the house. This is going to make a huge difference for them. They’re going to be able to go to school, not have to worry about paying for it. They’re going to be able to live a comfortable life and not worry about struggling. I don’t know if I want to cry, smile, what, I’m just grateful for this moment. I’m thankful that I can bless my kids with something that I didn’t have.”
Marie has four children aged 7, 4, 3 and nine months. After all the necessary deductions, Marie would be bringing home a lump sum of $87.9 million! Amazing, isn’t it?!
Lottery Winner #2 – Kesley Zachow
You might think that Friday the 13th is supposed to be a bad day, but not for this mother, nope! Kesley, a 25-year old single mother, bought a lottery ticket on Friday the 13th, June 2014 and that changed her fortune! She won a whopping amount of $66 million, and after all the necessary deductions she brought home a lump sum of $27 million. With that money, the mother wishes to buy her dream house, cars and go on a vacation with her boyfriend. She also plans to save college money for her son and her boyfriend’s child! She was quoted saying,
“I jumped in my car and locked the door. I couldn’t breathe! I pulled in the driveway [at home] and got out screaming. My boyfriend thought I was in a car accident.”
Lottery Winner #3 – Thuan Le
This mother of four children won the lottery by mistake! Thuan usually purchases lottery tickets worth $5, but one lucky morning she dropped an extra dollar by mistake and decided to take her chances. This accident led her to become $14 million richer! When she found out she’d won, she immediately rushed to the California Lottery’s Santa Ana and claimed her big fat check. With the money, Thuan stated she would buy a house, travel and visit her family in Vietnam. Lucky mother!
Lottery Winner #4 – Lacey Katona
Early March 2015, Lacey won the lottery for a solid $5 million from an instant lottery ticket! The mother of three stated that she hadn’t told her children about the lottery because frankly speaking, they were too young even to understand what it’s all about. Working as a retail manager, Lacey said she wanted to continue her job and didn’t know how she would be spending her fortune yet. She added,
“My family just feels truly blessed. I feel truly blessed. I’m still in complete shock. It doesn’t feel real at all, because we all know that this stuff doesn’t happen to normal people.” Aww… good for you woman!
Lottery Winner #5 – Laura Nunez
This mother won a whopping $1.4 million in the Powerball lottery mid-February 2014. When she found out that she won the lottery, she immediately called her mom to tell her the good news! Nunez, who has a 5-year old daughter, stated,
“I’m going to help my family. I’m not the only one who’s going to benefit. I’m going to buy a house. It would be the perfect opportunity to own a home.”
And she also plans to use some money to spoil her daughter! Why not! You deserve it!
