Marie Holmes, a 26-year-old mother with four kids, was one of the three winners of Wednesday’s Powerball drawing in North Carolina.

WTKR reports that Holmes’ portion of the $564 million jackpot is roughly $188 million.

“I don’t think it’s really hit me,” she said of her portion of the $564 million jackpot. “I guess when it hits my account is when it’s really going to hit me, but I’m thankful that I can bless my kids with something that I didn’t have.”

Holmes had worked at Walmart and McDonalds previously but had to quit in order to take care of her children.

One of her four children has cerebral palsy. Now, Holmes has the financial help she needs.

Asked what she will do with the money, Holmes said, “First I’m going to pay my tithes because I wouldn’t have none of it if it wasn’t for God.”
