Reasons for Thankfulness

It was almost 50 years ago that I started entering sweepstakes. My first big win was the services of a maid for a week. I had just delivered our twin daughters and I was thrilled to have this service to help me in the home. Each and every win since has been a joy and a blessing. Many I have shared with others and given to others as gifts. From the ton of 7UP which filled half my garage , to the high end computer, I never had one before, to the snowblower , paddleboat, lawnmower, cash, shirts, hats, gift certificates; they all seemed to arrive at a time when most needed. Sweepstakes are such a fun hobby who's benefits can bless not only you but many others. I am so grateful for this site that is such fun to navigate, enter the various sweeps and then dream about the next win whether its a big one or small, it doesn't matter. It's the thrill of the whole process.

I'm thankful for ...

... the wins I've had this year -- small stuff, but very appreciated -- but more so for the hope that sweeping brings me. I can't afford a kitchen renovation, but I have so many chances to win one, and I'm certain that one day I will.

What I'm grateful for! (Sweepstakes)

I am grateful for everything that I win, from the single Sobe to the trip to Egypt. I'm also grateful for the great sites that list all the sweeps, but most of all I am grateful for the friends I have met online. I have met some great people through sweepstakes, people that I would have never known otherwise.

Eating Thanksgiving due to $100. win

This has been a very rough couple of years for us. Family deaths, unemployment, foreclosure. A week ago, less than two weeks before Thanksgiving, last Monday my husband lost his job. No severance, no unemployment (they are closing the office and he was only hired less than four months ago) I had no idea what we'd do for Thanksgiving dinner and after crying for days we decided to "farm" the kids out to other peoples houses. I hated to split us up on Thanksgiving but I wanted the kids to have a traditional dinner and not really know quite how bad things are. (They are 12 and 15) THEN out of the blue I won $100 American Express gift card! I received the email and was so excited I could hardly stand it. Then after writing a note explaining the situation the sponsor Federal Expressed the card to us so we'd receive it in time for Thanksgiving and GUESS WHAT??!?!? We're EATING TURKEY TODAY. Together. As a family. It's the best gift I've ever received. Happy Thanksgiving EVERYONE!
