$200,000 Powerball Win "A Blessing" for Indy Mother

Tracy DavisINDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis woman can breathe a little easier after winning $200,000 in the April 7 Powerball drawing.  Tracy Davis matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number, in last night's drawing.
"It's a miracle," said Davis.  "It's a blessing.  That's probably a better word to describe it."
Although she was one number away from the $125 million jackpot, she isn't concerned.  She is more excited about what she has than what might have been.  Davis said her win is just the icing on the cake - the latest in a string of meaningful things to happen in her life. 
"In the last year things have been going so great. I got divorced last year, but I've met somebody and now we have a house. I got a promotion last week and now this!"
Davis works full-time at Apria Healthcare and goes to school where she is pursuing a degree in Health Information Technology. She does it all while raising four children between the ages of 4 and 15 that she and her boyfriend have between them. She said her win will let her breathe a little easier. 
"I'm so excited!" said Davis. "It's stability.  I can get a stable car, pay off my bills.  It's going to make a difference in my life."
Davis purchased her winning ticket at Village Pantry #0593 at 3131 E. Troy in Beech Grove.
The winning numbers on April 7 were: 4-36-40-44-52 PB:33.  Saturday's Powerball jackpot is $150 million.
