This is just amazing. I think at one point or another, most of us have been where this woman was just a week or so ago. Penny Pompa, a woman with four children living in Monroe, Connecticut had fallen on some pretty hard times. She had contracted Lyme disease and as a result had a lot of debt mounting from medical bills, and she was just about to lose her house. 

Penny prayed before she went to sleep for a miracle and in the morning... it came. At 8 a.m., she was awoken to a knock on the door and when she got there, it was the crew from Publisher's Clearing House! Yes, I guess someone really does win those prizes. Penny was the winner of $1 million!

I think one of the really cool things is that besides the oversized cardboard check, she also got a REAL check that morning for $25,000 to use as soon as she could get to the bank until the rest of the money is processed. I can't even imagine what it must have been like for her to have that enormous amount of stress lifted from her in an instant.

Fortunately, we don't have to imagine because the Publisher's Clearing house posted a video of it for us to watch. Check it out:
