  1. I’m thankful for duplos and thrift stores and families together for at least some of the holidays. <3

  2. I have so much to be grateful for, my family, my health, our new home, my friends and having so much love in my life.

  3. I am thankful for my God, and redemption in Christ! I am thankful for my big, wonderful family,for grandbabies; and for the little things, like diet Coke with lime, and fall weather, and chocolate!!

  4. I am thankful for my family and friends. They all mean so much to me. We don’t always agree but in the end we stand together as family and friends. Thanks to all of you!

  5. I am thankful for my tiny, stackable Kenmore Washer and Dryer that my husband I purchased in 2002 long before we had children. In addition to the routine laundry that my husband and growing children (ages 6, 5, and 2) create, those machines have helped me wash 3 children’s CLOTH DIAPERS, and countless spit ups, throw-ups, and bed time ‘accidents’. The dryer has quit on me twice and I kid you not, once it was fixed by me praying over it and another time my handy husband unplugged it and plugged it back in and it worked (I had already tried that by the way)!

    BUT – as the children’s clothes get bigger a new and large capacity washer would be PHENOMENAL. But until I hit the jackpot with this contest, I’ll continue to be thankful for what I have. 🙂

  6. I am thankful for my family and friends who have encouraged and loved on me during some trying times in 2012. I am also thankful for God and the peace and comfort only He can provide.

  7. I am thankful for a God who sacrificed His son for my transgressions, a husband who loves his family more than himself, a daughter who brings laughter and joy everyday, and the child God is forming in me now to add one more to our family. Each new day is a blessing!

  8. I’m so blessed in this life that being thankful doesn’t scratch the surface! My healthy 3 yr. old daughter, amazing husband of 7 1/2 years, supportive/loving/caring parents, my health, my puppy dogs! I’m thankful for all of these (and more!) and because of them, I’m reminded every day how blessed I am that I can begin each day knowing they’re a part of my life!

  9. I am very thankful for a hard-working husband with a huge heart to make an impact for The Lord in NWA with his financial ministry, and I’m also very thankful for four healthy, sweet, and smart kids who are growing in their love for Jesus and heart for others!!

  10. I am so thankful for my kiddo. He is the most wonderful light in my life. My dryer just went out (the second one in the last year – ugh!)so I’m thankful that I can run to my mom’s or sister’s house to dry my clothes!

  11. I have so much to be thankful for! And I do not take any of it for granted! The birth of our newest blessing and her big sister- who is the best big sister I could have ever dreamed of!THe gift of sight to see how the room lights up when the two of them see each other! My amazing husband, who tolerates all I put him through and who works so hard to support all of us! The health of our family, the arrival of two other sweet babies this year from my siblings, more amazing friends than I could have ever hoped for! Family who loves us and is always there for us. Oh, the list could go on and on! I know how blessed we are! Caffeine, ice cream, salt and vinegar chips, and diet cherry limeades also really help make life more wonderful! 😉

  12. I am thankful for my wonderful family, especially my baby girl. I am also especially thankful Ghirardelli squares….mmmm

  13. So thankful for my niece and nephew. They may be the greatest blessings God has given me. They are a constant reminder of His love for me and His grace in my life!

  14. I am so thankful for my mother, who took my daughter, dog and I in 2 months ago when my husband put us out of our home. I’m thankful for the amazing amount of support from my friends who have opened their hearts and homes to support us through this incredibly confusing time. Most of all though, I am thankful for my daughter who reminds me that we are worth so much more than we’ve been handed and inspires me to keep building our new life, even on the toughest of days. Even though none of this is as we planned it, we truly are so very blessed. 🙂

  15. I am thankful for Jesus, my family that He has blessed me with and my friends that He has blessed me with. I’m always weary of my mountain of laundry, but I’m thankful that we have those clothes to wear and wash. 🙂

  16. I am thankful for my amazing husband who works very hard to allow me to stay at home with our 3 amazing (and hyper!) children. I am thankful that they are healthy and happy. For family and friends who laugh and cry with you. For food on the table and a roof over our heads. For the 35 pounds of baby fat I’ve lost (10 more to goal!) For family dinners, family movies, and family get togethers. To the wonderful people who will be giving this to a mom. And lastly to God who has seen fit to give me such a wonderful family :))

  17. I am thankful for redemption and grace. I am thankful for the family God gave me and the Family I got to choose(my dear friends who know me better than my family).

  20. I am thankful that Emerson started kindergarten this year. I am thankful for the extra job that God placed me in that has me home until Emersons bedtime and brings me home as he gets up in the mornings and that the washer and dryer still work when I need them too for the many messes we clean up from Emerson and his pets.

  21. So much to be thankful for but today, especially I am thankful for the men and women that have fought for our liberty and freedom. The right to vote and my heavenly Father that is the ultimate authority over all! God bless America!

  22. I am thankful for my two healthy children, my loving husband of 12 years and the fact that we both have jobs that we truly enjoy and that make a difference in the lives of others. Thank you to Metro Appliances & More for sponsoring this giveaway! My washing machine is just about on its last spin cycle 🙂

  23. I am thankful to God for living in this country, where we have freedom to vote and we still are free to worship as we please. I am very thankful for the soldiers that maintain our freedoms. I am thankful for my family – a great husband and fun kids. I am so thankful for our good health. I could go on and on about my wonderful life. I’m just thankful for it all!!

  24.

Love the partnership they have with Hoping I win. : )

  86. Thankful for my salvation, family and friends and the opportunity to win a new washer and dryer! Thank you! 🙂

  87. I am thankful for my mother in law. My husband and I have 2 special needs children and finances can become hairy at times. In November of last year my husband changed jobs after 9 years with his company. Layoffs were happening left and right. My husband was sure he would be next. My husband started with a new company after a 2 week notice to his former employer. So we wouldn’t lose medical coverage on our children we had to pay $1000.00 to Cobra each month. We just didn’t have the money. My mother in law paid it every month until Feb of 2012. My husband was sure with the pay raise he received we would be able to pay it on our own. Things got very tight after that. In June we had to put my youngest special needs child in childcare. This cost us another $600.00 a month. My washer also crashed in June. We are currently renting one. In August my mother in law found out we were still paying the high insurance and decided to take over the payment for us until my husband became a permanent employee, which took place in October. Every so often my mother in law (Pat) will send us little gifts, inspirational cards and cash without being asked. My dryer is dying and I can only dry 1 to 2 loads a day now. I don’t want to ask my mother in law for anything more. Winning this contest would be a God send and will lesson future financial burdens. Thank you.

  88. I am so thankful for my family! I have the most wonderful husband and son, and I just don’t know what I would do without them. I am also thankful for the many wonderful experiences and travels I have been blessed with in life. The world is amazing, and I am glad I have been able to experience a bit of its diversity and offerings. I am always and forever thankful for coffee! I don’t know how I would get through my day, function, and react to the world around me without it! I think that each and every morning, I would be grumpy and lack a sense of humor if I didn’t have a cup, and would certainly speak in mumbles and grunts for the first few hours.

  89. I am thankful for my incredible husband, my 2 kids who remind each day what really matters, my yorkies and Diet Mountain Dew :).

  90. I am thankful for God, my husband, and our daughter. I am thankful for my dogs (who are my “children” since our daughter is married) … and for clothes so that I NEED a washer and dryer. Thank You, God, for all of these.

  91. I am thankful that I have running water with which to do my laundry and that I don’t have to haul it in a bucket from a dirty river

  92. I am thankful for my warm home and the opportunity to vote! Oh, and I’m super thankful for coffee every morning-Ha!

  93. So thankful for being healthy. I’d like to split this with my neighbor who is very ill if I win. I need a new dryer; I’ll give her the washer!

  94. I am thankful for my health! I went through a tough year of losing a lot of my mobility due to slipping 2 discs in my back while giving birth to my son. I can finally walk again and without pain. I am also thankful for my husband and children for being my GREATEST support system. I am thankful for my Faith-without it, I would have not had the strength to make it through those tough times. I am also thankful for chocolate, my morning cup of coffee, for my hot bath, wine, a good book, pretty days that I get to spend outside with my kids, and for my camera-I use it everyday! And last but certainly not least….I am thankful for Metro Appliances & More for giving this Mom of 4 a chance to win this BEAUTIFUL washer & dryer that is much needed in our house! Thank you Metro Appliances & More, you’re the BEST!

  95. Wow! I am thankful for so many things I don’t know where to start. I am thankful for the opportunity to win fun prizes! Thanks Metro Appliance. I am thankful for live and all the beauty it entails. My creator who made not only me but all the beauty that surrounds me. The relationships of family and friends that He has given. And through His sacrifice, the relationship I have with Him as my Creator, Lord, and Helper. Thankful for growth, second chances, smiles, hugs, sunshine, seasons, sweet surprizes, sweet smells, sacrifice, love, trees, babies bottoms, laughter… I could keep going on.

  166. I’m thankful for the hilarious personality my (and I guess my husband’s) genes have given to my son. Although he can be a bit of a crybaby, he’s dramatically funny and animated. He’s also a marvelous dare devil, and at not-quite-three, his tumbling and acrobatics are hard on clothes. This new washer/dryer set would be ideal for his upcoming adventures!
    Thank you, Metro Appliances & More for providing such an awesome give-away!

  167. I am thankful for my wonderful daughter-in-law and son-in-law. They have enriched the lives of not only my son and daughter, but of the whole family.
    Metro is fantastic – I have bought many appliances and lighting fixtures there!

  168. I’m thankful for many things this year including the health of all in my family, employment and a place to live. These are things we have always taken for granted in the past. It has been a year of reflection and for many opportunities to be grateful for these simple blessings.

    Metro has been the only place we have purchased appliances over the last 10 years. The customer service is excellent. It is time for a new washer and dryer at our house as ours have been repaired many times and will not make it much longer. Our family would be very grateful to receive a new set!

  169. I am thankful that our home sold last week. We have been trying to move to Dallas for two years. Our family lives there and we need to spend more time with them in retirement.
    It would be wonderful if we could win this contest because our washer and dryer will stay with the house!

  170. I am thankful for my daughter and the light and laughter she brings to our lives, we waited for her for almost 10 years and it was well worth the wait. I am thankful for my friends, without their help I’m not sure how I could have gotten through the last few months. And most of all I am thankful for my husband, who even when he was diagnosed with cancer he still kept it together and went through the surgery and kept attending the UofA full time. He has been cancer free for 2 months and will be graduating this December.

  171. I am thankful for everyday that I wake up to my two wonderful childrens faces. If it weren’t for those faces everyday making me laugh and light up what would I be doing everything I do for. I live for them and work for them to be happy. I thank God everyday for the wonderful blessings he bestowes on my family and I even though it is not much it is the little things that really count and make life worth living. 🙂

  172. I am thankful that my 12 year old washer/dryer, 11 year old car, and 32 year old self are all holding up…. Sometimes just barely 🙂

  173. I am thankful for my friends, family, and good health. We have a friend that is without a washer and a cook stove and I would LOVE to be able to give this W/D set to them. They have a far bigger need than I do!

  174. I’m thankful for so much this year – my two healthy kids, my wonderful husband, my loving parents, lots of great friends and family, my job … the list could go on and on!

  177. I am thankful for everything I have been blessed wirh especially my family, home, vehicle, job and friends. If I win I plan on blessing someone else… Happy Thanksgiving.

  178. At this moment I am so thankful for my current church – Vintage Fellowship in Fayetteville. Last year after deciding to close the church we were at since 2002 we quickly found the place for us. We had our challenges but I see each of us thriving in various ways and I see my kids blessing others all the time. So very thankful for less stress in this department and for growth.

  179. I am thankful for my family. I am alos happy we are healthy we will be able to celebrate Thanksgiving together as a family.
