RICHMOND, Va. - A Virginia woman had a Mother's Day she won't soon forget.

Lakeshia Wallace of Fairfax won more than $237,000 playing a Virginia Lottery game on her phone over Mother's Day weekend.

“I like playing in the comfort of my home,” the mother of three told Virginia Lottery officials. "I didn’t sleep that night. I tossed and turned. I kept thinking, ‘Is this real?'"
