Just look at Gawd! If we must say…  Meet Marie Holmes, 26yrs old  single mother  of 4 from North Carolina who is one of three who  hit the Powerball $564 million jackpot a couple of weeks ago for $188 million {Wow Just look at him.. Gawd that is!}, See how the rich Mom celebrate her win and what she have going on in her life now that she is a millionaire!!! Videos inside.








Okay here the snap report abcnews:

Holmes said her mom, who purchased the winning ticket for her on her way to church, was the first person she called. Once they double-checked the numbers on her mom’s phone, Holmes had the exact reaction you would imagine a newly-minted multimillionaire would have.

“I started screaming outside,” Holmes said.

While her mom was convinced because she saw the numbers in person, Holmes says the rest of her family did not believe she had won the $564.1 million jackpot, the fifth largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

“I called my sister and I told her…she was like, ‘Stop playing with me. I’m asleep. You didn’t hit the lottery. Send me a picture,’” Holmes said. “So I sent her a picture and then I called my uncle and told him the same thing. He told me, ‘Man I’m at work don’t be playing with me.’

Holmes had been living with six other people –- including her four children, ages 9 months to 7 years –- prior to her lottery win.

“I don’t have to worry about staying with my mom anymore. I can have my own place,” she said. "We're going to have our own everything."

“They can have their own house and stuff so it’s going to impact not only mine but the people around me," Holmes said of her family.

Holmes accepted a check yesterday for $188 million from North Carolina Education Lottery officials. After taxes are taken out of her lump-sum payment of $127 million, Holmes will take home $87.9 million.

“I still don’t believe it,” Holmes said. “I don’t know when I’m actually going to believe it.”

Holmes says she plans to travel, put away money for her children’s education and use the money to continue her own education in nursing.

She also plans to donate money to her church and to organizations associated with cerebral palsy, the neurological disorder that afflicts her 7-year-old son.

“He can get all the help he needs,” Holmes said of her eldest child. “He gets one-on-one time now but he can get more help.”

And though life will certainly change in some ways for Holmes’s four children, she says she plans to keep things as normal as possible.

“They’re not getting everything they want,” Holmes said. "I was told no so you’re going to get told no. You have got to learn.”

“You’re not going to get everything. I can buy you everything but I’m not,” she said of her lesson to her kids.
