    Bummed that you didn't win Wednesday's massive Powerball drawing?

    That single mom Marie Holmes captured an estimated $188 million share of the jackpot might make you feel better about it.

    Holmes, a 26-year-old from Shallotte, North Carolina, has four kids, one of whom has cerebral palsy, Fox 8 reported. She recently had to quit her jobs at McDonald's and Walmart to take care of them.

    Holmes purchased her winning ticket at a gas station convenience store. When the numbers in Wednesday's drawing were announced, "I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I saw the ticket and checked it," she told WECT.

    She hasn't been confirmed the winner yet. If you won would you be flashing the winning ticket out in public? I wouldn't be surprised if she's not the winner.

    I know a few black people that are very good with their finances...own homes where they rent out the apartments...etc.

    Granted...none of them are or have baby daddies/mommas
