A woman from Clarkston, MI was on the verge of losing everything when she won BIG!

With all of the constant bad news, it's so uplifting to hear stories like this.  Imagine being a 50-year old woman taking care of your sick mother full-time while you're having the roughest year of your life.  And then the most amazing thing happens!  That just happened according to WXYZ.com,

Shawna Donnelly matched the five white balls that were drawn on January 15th in the Lucky For Life drawing by the Michigan lottery.

The 50-year-old purchased her ticket at the 7-Eleven on Sashabaw in Clarkston.

“I woke up in the middle of the night and had a feeling I should check my tickets,” said Donnelly in a news released. “When I saw I matched five numbers, I must have refreshed my phone 100 times to make sure I really won!

Donnelly will receive a one-time lump sum of $390,000.  A new home, a new car and a savings account are all in her immediate future.  Congrats Shawna Donnelly!

Now, I need to check with a Michigan Pastor that can see the future before I play Thursday's lotto.
