A Michigan woman who'd been having an "unusually lucky day" turned that good fortune into a windfall.
The 60-year-old, who was not named, said her string of luck started with a visit to the eye doctor, where she learned that she didn't need to buy new contact lenses.After that, she appreciated that she and her daughter finished yard work they needed to do in half the time they thought it would take.
But the luck didn't end there.
"When I left my daughter's, I left my cellphone on my car trunk and realized when I got about five miles down the road," she told Michigan Lottery officials. "I backtracked, and found it laying in the middle of the road unscathed."
It was at that moment she said she knew she needed to buy a lottery ticket.
The Jackson County woman told Michigan Lottery officials she decided to buy the Bonus Cashword scratch-off ticket from a BP gas station in Jackson after a string of lucky events.
And thankfully she did: The woman took home a $100,000 prize, which she plans to use to purchase a new home with her husband.
"Winning is awesome!" she said. "We've worked so hard our whole lives, it feels like we finally got something we deserve."
Good for her! Here's hoping all of us have some "unusually lucky days" ahead!
