NOTE FROM THE MAMAS: Congrats to Jenny Ellis of Fayetteville! She just won the Samsung washer and dryer, and she is PUMPED! She said it’s the first time she has won any kind of giveaway prize. If you didn’t win, please remember that we host awesome giveaways almost every week here on the website so please check our Giveaways category regularly. You’ll get it next time!

Cue the singing angels! It’s that time of year again. We’re giving away a front-loading Samsung washer and dryer! And they are NIIIIIIIIIICE. This giveaway is courtesy of our friends at Metro Appliances & More.

Samsung giveaway set Nov 2015We all know that laundry is a BIG part of a mom’s daily life. (Is it just me or does anyone else feel like she is constantly behind by at least two or more loads of laundry?)

This daily chore is a lot easier to face when you’ve got two brand new machines that come with all the bells and whistles. Suddenly your laundry room goes from chore dungeon to a sleek, clean, high-tech laundry command center.

nwa boutique show 2015 sized 220SEE THEM IN PERSON: If you’d like to check these machines out in person, we’ll be showing them off at our booth at the Northwest Arkansas Boutique Show on Friday and Saturday of this week (November 6th and 7th) at the NWA Convention Center in Springdale (next to the Holiday Inn.) Come by to say hello and see the washer and dryer because you can sign up again for the drawing while you’re there and that will earn you an extra chance to win. (Plus, we’d love to visit with you in person!)

ABOUT THE APPLIANCES: Ladies, these machines are FANCY. They’re made by Samsung and packed with all the technology you’d expect from that name. The 3.6 cubic foot washer has 9 preset wash cycles, and the added feature of a steam wash to help remove stubborn stains. (Raise your hands if your kids get stubborn stains. Yep, that’s just about everybody.)

Get this: The washer not only washes the clothes, it also washes itself, removing dirt and bacteria without using chemicals. AND… it will remind you that it Laundryneeds cleaning every time you’ve done 40 loads. All you have to do is turn the dial and push a button.

The 7.3 cubic foot Samsung dryer has 9 different preset drying cycles, including everything from delicates to heavy duty. It also has 4 different options for temperature settings as well as dryness levels. The door is reversible so you can adjust it to work best in your laundry room layout, and it has a see-through door (which comes in handy when a toddler wants to watch his favorite “blanky” tumble around in the dryer.)

ABOUT METRO: We’ve been partnering with Metro Appliances & More on cool giveaways like this one for more than six years now. They are simply THE BEST store we’ve ever worked with when it comes to customer service and product knowledge. And we have always really appreciated how their sales team is metro appliances and morehelpful and attentive when you have questions but also respectful of those times when you’d rather just browse alone and plan your dream kitchen or laundry room.

Whether you want a top-of-the-line appliance or a scratch and dent model at a deeper discount, the people at Metro will find what you want and you’ll end up going back again because you’ll be so impressed with the service, just like we were.

And guess what? Metro is building a new showroom soon that will be HUGE and feature even more kitchen showrooms, washer and dryer sets and lots more. They hope to open the doors on the new store sometime late next year. We’ll keep you posted on the details.

HOW TO ENTER: In the spirit of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, toss your name in the online drawing by clicking on the words “post a comment” below and then tell us about a mom in your life who you’re thankful for and why. (Is it your own mom? Or maybe a mom friend or a moms’ group that keeps you sane on the tough days? Or maybe a woman who was “like a mother” to you when you needed one?)

We’d also love it if you’d be so kind as to give a shout-out to Metro Appliances because their generosity will make it possible for one local mom to get more than a thousand dollars worth of appliances at absolutely no cost.

  1. I am thankful for my step mother. She was the one who raised me to be the person I am today. She taught me how to cook, clean and do laundry. I am now married with three kids and she has a big part of that!

    • I am thankful for my friend Lacey who has 2 precious girls, works full time and works with single moms who she has such a heart for. She is not only my coworker but best friend of 10 years!

  2. It would be completely amazing to win this washer and dryer set! Our dryer is currently working, but starting making this horrendous screeching noise. Good thing my husband is handy, but a new one would be outstanding. Thank you so much for offering so much cool stuff for us to try to win!

  3. I am most thankful for my mom. She is irreplacable and a true inspiration to me and other women who know her.

  4. I’m thankful for my a couple of Mom’s in my life. These are friends of mine (Christy and Tonya) met through work. They inspire me to never lose faith and are a fountain of resources when it comes to different mom issues, like those tough conversations with tweens.

    I think their directions and actions have definitely influenced my mothering skills and taught me better ways to handle situations- with family and everyone else.

  5. I’m thankful for my mom. This year, she lost her mother, and we all struggled through that challenge and pain. She’s been a rock and is always present to do what needs to be done, even when she’s drained completely.

  6. The single most grateful thing I can think of as far as my mom was concerned was that back in the 60’s, she had this belief that I should be able to choose from a wide array of toys and not only pink Barbies and dolls and “girls toys.” So, growing up, I had Tonka toys that I used to rip up her grass to make my highways that connected my Barbie cities and I had matchbox cars that I used to get from city to city. I really wasn’t a “Tomboy” per se, but I was sometimes labeled as such because people were so rooted by the black and white dichotomy of gender roles. I think she was a real trail blazer for her time. I later got married and had two boys and raised them pretty much the same way and I raised two amazing young men who are very comfortable with their sense of gender. I owe that to my mom.

  7. I’m thankful for my mom Jan Grossman that took me in at age 17 and made me her own. She is kind, generous, and loving!

  8. I’m thankful for my mom! She was widowed at the age of 39 and raised 2 kids through rough teenage years. She was and is the best!!! We will be at GNO Friday night! See you there.

  9. My mom cause she was always there for me and raised me right in church and showing me that Jesus is the only way:) She always pushed me to do my best and loved me very much. Thanks mom:)

    Jerissa

  10. I’m very thankful for my mother, Rose. She was always there for me and my brother. She always did without so that we could have the things we needed. She is the most selfless person I know. Now she is my best friend.

  11. I am thankful for my coworker at church, Jo Stross. She and I work in the infant room for the KDO class. She is always there for me as a friend & mentor. I love her like a momma. She fills that mom void in my life since my momma passed away when I was 21. Metro Builders thank you

  12. I’m so thankful for my mom. She has taught me so much. She still helps me so much and she will always be my best friend 🙂
    This is such an awesome giveaway! My washer and dryer are ancient and are on their deathbed! Hope we win! 🙂

  13. I am thankful for my Grandmothers (Meme & Mamaw), they both have the most beautiful souls. They have always been my inspirations for how I want to live my life. And a BIG THANKS to Metro for this fabulous prize… it is awsome!!!

  14. I am thankful for my daughter Megan Shannon who is a wonderful mother to her two children! She is also a teacher who has a big heart for kids and taught for five years before getting to stay home with hers. She teaches Sunday School and just has a big heart. She could use a new washer and dryer since the ones she has are hand me downs.

  15. My Grandmother, Words can’t explain how much I love that women , she means the world to me, Thank you for teaching me, loving me, being my best friend, my mother, my EVERYTHING. If it wan’t for my grandmother I would not have become the person/wife/mother I have become today. Thank you Nanny, I love you , and will always. Can’t wait to see you again.

  16. Woohoo to Metro for this great giveway……….My mom is always there for me when I need her and even when I do not. She checks on us almost everyday and we have all been grown for years 🙂

  17. My ‘adopted’ daughter Sara has had a hard young life. She’s a wife now thank goodness to a wonderful guy, 2 beautiful kiddos the eldest with his own set of set backs but she never lets it get her down. They work full time. They parent full time. This young man has actually taken the boy and adopted him! She’s always running around for them, making them whatever they need from whatever they have. She’s dedicated to her family. They’ve fallen upon hard times and had to move in with family and now they finally have the money to move out on their own but don’t have a washer or dryer. Please please think about selecting this young family for your contest!

    Thank you!

  18. I am thankful for my mother. She has been such an inspiration through everything with me. And now she’s such an amazing mimi to my little one! This washer and dryer wouldn’t be for me…. It would be for her! Metro Appliances is doing such a good thing helping out someone who needs it!! I’ve shopped there before and have never been disappointed!

  19. My mom is who I’m most thankful for. My first husband passed away when our kids were 4 and 6. I would have never made it through his illness and passing and all that goes along with that without her support and help. She was there for us every step of the way, whether it was watching the kids while I worked, to running loads of laundry. I can never thank her enough. My kids are now 21 and 23, and she is still always there if we need her.

  20. I am thankful for all the Mom’s of my students. They work tirelessly to support me as a teacher and keep their student prepared to learn everyday.

  21. I’m thankful for my mother-in-law. She was the first person to hug me and really mean it and also the first person to say that she loved me and really mean it. She has shown me what unconditional love was. I never understood that or felt that kind of love from anyone else until I came to know God. She is truly a mother to me. And I’m very thankful for everything she has shown me.

    • I just started following you on Pinterest! I’m not sure why I haven’t done that yet! Can’t wait to see what you pin!!!

  22. I am actually nominating my grandmother, no matter how sick she is ever. She always thinks about herself before others. She never slows down she is always on the go and helping others. She a very loving person who loves her grand kids!!!

  23. I am a mom with 83 years of experience. No, I am not 100+, but I have three daughters whose ages total 83 years. Ask any mom and they will tell you, each child is so different from the siblings, hence 83 years! All of the labor, delivery, hours of rocking, fixing scraped knees, taxi driving, endless meals and laundry not to mention all of the conversations on why you have to be nice to your sister have paid off. I now have a daughter who is a mother and she is an amazing mommy. There is no bigger joy that to have adult children who are well grounded, loving people. I just happen to have three. What I don’t have is a working washing machine and a second hand drier!

  24. I am thankful for a couple “mom” figures (outside of my own mother) in my life who have shaped me into the mother I am today. The 1st is Linda who lived up the street from me as a kid. She was and still is a child care provider. Her children were my friends and she was also there for advise when I needed it. Even 15 years later asking her for potty training advise when my daughter hit that time in her life. The 2nd is Sharon who was a supervisor of mine at the job I had during my early 20s. She became so much more then a boss over the years, even after I left the company for another opportunity! Shew taught me about taking care of myself and always supported my decisions and just listened! I am almost 35, a single mother myself and still look up to each of these women.

  25. I am so thankful for my mother. Although she was married, my dad was abusive and never involved. She raised us as a single mom and had us all in church. We all have families of our own now and are serving God. She is now remarried and a missionary in Israel.

  26. I am very grateful for my own mother! She has provided my sister and I with an abundance of love, respect, and raised us up to do the same for others. She is not only my mom but one of my best friends!

  27. I am thankful for my momma!! She is my very best friend and I don’t know what I would do without her!!! She lost her mom, my Grandma, just this year and it really made me realize even more just how special they both are to me!!! I pray for many many more years with my mom!!!

  28. I’m so very thankful for mom. She was given the daunting task of raising my sister and I after a tragic accident causing us to lose our father. She has taught me that in life you can’t count on tomorrow and be the best you can be. A new washer and dryer would be fantastic in my family of 5!! Thanks metro for the opportunity of being able to win a great appliance.

  29. I am so very thankful for my own mother. She has stuck by me, even when I have not been the best daughter. She was there with me when I gave birth to my own daughter. She is always available when I need her.
    I receive the newsletter, I follow y’all on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook. 🙂 I could really use a new washer and dryer. We have a lot of cloth diapers we wash. 🙂

  30. I am thankful for my little momma! She is a great mom and grandmother! And now she is coping with my dad who has Alzheimer’s and is in the busing home. She goes to see him every day! I want to win this for her!!

  31. I am most thankful for my wonderful husband! He has been there every step of the way as I have been battling brain cancer for the last year and a half! He jumps in and helps with taking care of the kids, laundry, and dishes! I am so thankful for him!

  32. My three daughters are amazing moms and I am so proud of how they love their children and husbands well! Just the greatest blessing to witness!! Love them all!

  33. I am thankful for my mom. She is amazing.

    Thank you for this amazing giveaway! Four kids – this would help a TON!

  34. I am SO thankful for my mom who taught me so much but unfortunately I lost her to MS several years ago. My big sister has always filled the role of a second mom to me. There are 13 years separating us. From advice on cleaning or cooking to kids or just someone to listen to me she’s always there. I love my big sister so much!

  35. I am so very thankful for my mom!! Even more so today than yesterday or two years ago. My mom just battled uterine cancer and as of today, she is cancer free. Going through this battle with her has made me appreciate her and our relationship even more than I did before. She is my best friend and I could not love her more.

  36. Thanks to Metro for this awesome prize- hoping to win for my daughter whose washing machine gave it up awhile back.
    I’m thankful for my Mom who was always there for me.

  37. I am thankful for my mother, who had the courage as a young woman, to get out of an abusive relationship in order for me to be raised without being in fear each and every day. Young mothers sometime feel trapped in abusive relationships for fear they cannot do it on their own. Thanks You Mom for your sacrifices in order to give me a great upbringing.

    I am also thankful for my step Grandmother, who has been like a mother to me since I was born. Some of my best memories, as a child, involve this women. She has always loved me like I was her own. Thank You Grandma Sally for being the grandma you didn’t have to be.

    Thank You, Metro Appliances & More of Springdale, for help those in need.

  38. I loved my Mom very much, she was the best,but she has been gone now for 2 years. I am thankful I had her for 59 years. The moms in my life now are my two beautiful daughters who are absolutely great mothers to their children. i am very thankful to have them in my lives and the have both given me two amazing grandchildren to love and spoil. Life is grand but I sure could use a new washer and dryer.

  39. So grateful for my grandmother who was a second mom to me. She taught me how to cook, pray, sew and too many other life skills to list. I hope I am half the mom she was!

  40. I am thankful for a mom that was not my blood mom but a leader in a local mission in my neighborhood when I was growing up in New Orleans. She helped me make some decisions that were better for my life than I would have made without her influence.
    She is gone now but never forgotten. She mothered many children but never had any of her own.
    I really could use the washer and dryer too!!

  41. My mom, of course! We have been through ups and downs, but she is mine and I wouldn’t change her at all. She is hardworking and a good role model as to how a women can multi-task and provide for her family. She has always been there for me and now my kids!

  42. My mother in law just passed away this past weekend, and I am so grateful for her and the impact she had on my husband, my son, and me. She was an incredible, Godly woman.

  43. I am so thankful for my mother. She has given up so much for my siblings and I to have things and has always been there for us, no matter how stupid we have been 😉 now she is a fantastic grandma to my kids and I am so blessed to have someone like her in my life!

  44. I am thankful for my mom. She is the most generous, loving and supportive person I know. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago and fought like a champ. She was courageous, brave and upbeat through the whole process. Quitting was never an option and she is cancer free! I am thankful everyday for her.

  45. As a single mother to a 3 year old, a full time employee working 40hrs a week, a full time student at the University of Arkansas taking 12hrs of classes this semester trying to graduate in the spring I HEAVILY rely on the ladies of my life. My oldest sister mother of two, and younger sister (a prek teacher) who help nurture and grow my little lady all the times I’m frantically studying for exams, or at a work event, or occasionally when I just need a break. These ladies are my saving grace I could not pay my bills, or earn my college degree without their support. They build me up and help my little lady grow in ways that even a mother can’t. With TIME being my ultimate “frenemy” an efficient washer dryer set would help in so many ways!!!!!

  46. Besides my own mom, I am very thankful for my Grandmother, who has always been there to listen and help with anything I needed … She’s recovering from surgery in the hospital right now so prayers for her!

  47. I’m thankful for my pastor’s wife, Sheila. She also happens to be a fellow homeschool mom and one of my best friends. Love her to pieces. ❤️

    Commented on FB post.

    Also an email subscriber.

  48. After going through a divorce, I was super blessed to come across a single mom’s ministry at my church. Single parenting is really hard and these moms are a lifeline for each other!! Thank you, Metro Appliances, for the opportunity a much-needed gift! What a blessing!

  49. I am so thankful for my mom because she is my best example and role model for being a mom. She taught me to be strong person when we have difficulties. I am sure she will be smiling and happy and reminds me to be thankful and grateful if I win these washer and dryer.

    Thank you nwamotherlode and Metro !!!

  50. I am so thankful for my Aunt. She has loved me unconditionally and has always been there for me, even though she has three kids of her own. I can’t imagine my life without her.

  51. My sweet mom! She is a great cook and taught me so much about cooking. She is kind, funny, and loves me unconditionally!

  52. I am thankful for a best friend who is always there to listen when I need a shoulder or to help with my boys when I need it!

  53. I am so impressed with the mother that my daughter-in-law has become. She is so nurturing and loving to her girls, guiding them every day. I would love to win this washer & dryer and give them to her to replace her really old ones!

  54. I’m grateful for all of the strong women in my life. I have been blessed to be raised in the south by classic southern women who still go to the beauty parlor, wear their hair in rollers and say the blessing at supper. Picking one woman would be difficult and unfair to them all. But I have my own group of Steel Magnolias and I love them all dearly.

  55. I am very thankful for my mom. She has 6 kids and 7 grandkids and 7 step grandkids and she helps take care of all of them. I don’t know what we’d all do sometimes without her. Love you mom! So greatful there are companies like Metro Appliances that want to help show appreciation for mom’s and all they do! Thanks Metro!

  56. Thanks so much to Metro Appliances & NWA motherlode for the giveaway. My answer would be my own Momma, who is now passed but I keep her alive in my thoughts & my heart. She was a one woman wrecking crew who worked so hard as a single Mom in the 70’s & 80’s but she always put a positive spin on everything & was a tremendous homemaker at the same time.

  57. I’m very blessed with friends who are great moms and role models for me to follow! Being a working mom is challenging and seeing others do it successfully is such an encouragement.

  58. I’m thankful for my best friend who helps me to figure out the hard stuff before it even comes along…. And when things come up before we’ve talked about it, she’s patient, giving, understanding and helpful!

  59. I’m thankful for my own mom. She was a single mom and always put her needs above ours. She now does the same for her grandchildren.

  60. My mom. She is the cornerstone of our family. She does family dinners on Sunday’s and helps anyway she can. She loves my kids and most importantly

  61. I am very thankful for my mom. She was the best. Since she’s been gone, I’m thankful to have a very sweet mother-in-law who would do absolutely anything for me.

  62. I’m thankful for my sister. She’s a single mom who works so hard to provide her family and still astounds me in how generous she is with others.

  63. I am thankful for my mother & mother-in-law. They have been wonderful help with our newborn son!

  64. I am thankful for my mother, who has been there as my main supporter thru thick and thin. My Mom inspires me to keep on fighting, no matter what life sends our way. Love my Mom!!!!

  65. I’m thankful for the moms I’ve met through a local moms group. It’s great to be able to come together and create lifelong friendships.

  66. I’m thankful for my Mom. She was the best Mom!!

    Thank you Metro for the chance to win a new washer & dryer. My last two sets have been from Metro…great products & service!

  67. I actually have 2 mothers that I would like to talk about. One is my mom, Paula. I honestly can’t think of any other mother that “out-mothered” her when I was growing up. She provided for me and my brother and sister daily, even signing a sweet song to us as we woke up in the mornings. I always had yummy food in my tummy and I had nice clothes on my back. She hugged us, but also disciplined us as needed. She has been my rock everyday for 35 years and I don’t know what I would do without her. My other mom is my mother-in-law, Lynne. Even when my husband and I hit a rough patch financially when we were first married, she was there for us with financial aid and loving arms. She goes above and beyond for my husband, myself, and my 2 boys. Since she is retired, she comes up to NWA from North LR anytime we need her, day or night. She means the world to me, and we love her so much.

  68. I have two. My own mother for loving me despite my mess-ups. She is supportive when she could have been disappointed and judgmental. And my Aunt Shirley. I always felt unconditional love from her, and she taught me so much about cooking, cleaning, mending, and making.
    It is great to read all the comments here!

  69. Im thankful for my mom because she has also been a rock in my large family of 8. She is reliable and always made sure the house was clean and there was dinner on the table. She is kind and has a large heart. She never judges others! She’s an amazing and strong person and someone that i have always looked up to.

  70. I am thankful for my mom! She is a wonderful person and I can only dream to be half the mom she was to us!

  71. I’m thankful for our local La Leche League. I’ve been going to meetings for quite some time now, and have been so grateful for the support and comaraderie.

  72. I’m grateful for the moms in my life who are doing this parenting thing alone. I’m inspired by them and grateful for the commitment they show their children!

    Following on Pinterest and Twitter! (@channynn)

  73. I’m most thankful for my step-mom! She’s the mom that honestly raised me & my brother (and her own daughter). Our family has blended so much so, most people don’t even realize we’re a blended family. That’s pure love & commitment. We couldn’t be luckier!

  74. Honestly, through my line of work, I am always most inspired by single moms. When I become overwhelmed at the amount on my plate, I am always thankful for the amount of work they do and it gives me perspective.

  75. I am following you on pinterest, Facebook, and receive your newsletter as well. Thank you for doing this giveaway!

  76. I”m so very thankful for my mom! She is a very busy person taking care of my dad and everyone else who is in need, she sometimes forgets to take care of herself! My mom, shows me what it means to be a person who puts everyone else before herself. I couldn’t make it without her! She is my sounding board and sometimes my kids taxi and she always does it with a smile!

  77. I am so Thankful for my mom and my mother in law. Both ladies tough me so much and gave me so much love. I miss both of them every day.

  78. I have bought all the appliances in my house for the past 10 years from Metro. The are a lifesaver for a single Mom without a truck. All the box stores charge a lot of money for delivery and hook-up. My grandmother Bertha was probably the best Mom in my life. I lived with her a couple of years and it was great. She has passed on now but you can still meet her when you eat my cooking.

  79. Here’s my annual attempt at winning this! WE are a family of 5 using a 15 year old STACKABLE washer and dryer because they just won’t quit working. Even after cloth diapering three sweet babies. 🙂

    My mom is the strongest and kindest woman I know. She’s currently recovering from her second hip replacement in 15 months and silently works hard to get better. her main goal is to be active for her grandkids. She’s my hero!

  80. I’m thankful for my aunt who is also my godmother. She loves me like I’m her own and she’s been a wonderful grandmother figure for my son.

    I follow you on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook!

  81. I am grateful for my Mother-in-Law, Doris Willyard. My mother is very far away and she has always been there for me, encouraging me and feeding me the best food on the planet! She is very attentive and loving to her grand children and is well known in the community for her kindness and generosity. She welcomed me, my daughter and even my daughter’s father warmly from day one. She raised three very fine gentleman, one of whom I have the privilege of calling my spouse. He is kind, hard working, generous and just a wonderful husband, father and friend. I am blessed to have my mother in law and cherish her highly. I am incredibly thankful for her.

  82. I am thankful for my mom because she has been there no matter what and has never judged. She is only there for me no matter what the situation.

  83. So thankful for my mom and everything she does for our family! She is a great example for her daughters and now granddaughters.

  84. I have many moms in my life that I am thankful for! My mom to start. She has always supported all of her children in what we wanted to do. She knows how to guide without overstepping, and holds her tongue far more often than I probably even know. She recognizes that each of her children are different, and now that we are parents, we parent differently. To respect all of our wishes for our children shows great love. Love my momma!

  85. I’m thankful for all the moms in my life – my moms, my aunts, my grandmothers and my mother in law. All have had a significant influence on me! I also follow on FB, Twitter and Pinterest!

  86. I am so thankful for my mother- in law. She has helped me through many rough times in my life. She has a wonderful heart!

  87. My mom is the mom I’m most thankful for,and both of us could use a new washer/drawer. Our is leaking oil as we speak, and I just hope and pray it doesn’t give out until we can afford to replace it. Winning would be even better! Thanks Metro for offering this giveaway!

  88. I would love to win this washer/dryer set. Ours is sooo old 🙂 I am most thankful for my mom. She has always been my biggest supporter. I am thankful for every day that I have with her.

  89. I am thankful for my finacee’s mom. She has been great at helping us plan for blending 2 families and with a house full of 5 boys, we could really use this.

  90. I’m thankful for my mom. She’s adventurous, caring and always there when I need her!
    I follow nwamotherlode on fb, Pinterest, and Twitter and the newsletter.

  91. My daughter Catherine Brown is an amazing mother. She has two daughters works full-time and does all things mothers do. She does it flawlessly and enjoys being a mother. I’m very proud of her.

  92. I liked and commented on your Facebook. I followed you on Twitter and Pinterest.

    I am so thankful for my own mother who is selfless beyond belief, giving to me, my kids and the entire family all her time, love and attention. She is always there to take care of us even though we are grown and she loves my babies better than anyone! Thank you Metro Appliances for this give-away.

  93. I am so thankful for my Mom who has worked so hard her whole life and been a beautiful example of love & humility. I’m also thankful for my best friend’s Mom, who loved me as if I were her own! What a blessing loving mothers are!

  94. I’m so thankful for mom. She’s the most patient and supportive lady I know. She keeps life moving in a positive direction. And she taught me how to do laundry.

  95. I’m thankful for my children’s mother. She takes amazing care of our kids and ALWAYS puts them first. Thank you Metro Appliances for this give-away.

  96. My mother. She goes above and beyond to help others and has been a lifesaver after the birth of my 4th child

  97. My mother was the GREASTEST mother in the world, I can only hope that I am half the mom that she was. After she passed away my mother-in-law has been awesome and has been a second mom to me, even letting us move in with her as we are transitioning from one house to another. She has been amazing helping out with my boys and even having dinner ready every night. I’m not sure how I would do it without her, so grateful that she is in my life.

  98. I’m so thankful for my mother in law. She raised my husband and his brother as a single mom, and she did a fantastic job. My family lives in Little Rock, but luckily she lives about 10 minutes from us and is always willing to help out and watch my children. I don’t know what I would do without her.

  99. I am most thankful for my mom..not only is she my mom but she’s my best friend and my inspiration ..having 3 girls and 1 boy..she has always showed us each the true meaning of unconditional love..she has endured the greatest heartbreak having to bury two of her children yet she shows so much grace and compassion..I have no idea where I would be without her..she truly is my hero

  100. I’m thankful for my adopted mom who taught me to take care of our home and encouraged me to find a career where I could support myself and family.

  101. My mom always gives me a break when she comes in town by washing clothes and dishes. I thank God for her many talents.

  102. The mom I most admired was my mom’s mom, AKA Granny. Words cannot express everything she was to everyone around her. She was the most caring and giving person I have ever had the privilege to know. She grew up with very little but would do without just so those less fortunate than her could have the necessities. She took care of everyone and always had a smile and a funny story to share. When it came to family, she always put herself last but we all held her up on a pedestal. When she developed Alzheimer’s, the lives of our entire family changed. Life hasn’t been the same since she left us. She was an amazing lady that I strive to be like every day.

  103. My friend Shelly Parker….. I am recently divorced with a wonderful 8 year old daughter…. Single Parenting has been a huge challenge. She has been there with encouraging words and advice from her own journey as a single parent….. I so appreciate all the single mom’s out there!

  104. My mom is the most SELFLESS person I know. She gets true joy from giving to and taking care of others. She’s my hero!

  105. My mother became a widow at the tender age of 21 with a 2 year old and an 8 week old to raise. She did it all by herself, she never remarried. I remember her working up to 3 jobs at one time just to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. So when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, I knew that she was already a fighter and would give cancer a heck of a fight. And fight she did, for 2 years. She did all the treatments and medications that were ordered for her but in the end the cancer wore her down. I promised here before she died that I would continue the fight for a cure. My Mom raised me to be the person I am today and if I can be half the person that she was, I will feel honored.

  106. My dear friend Natalie has shared the best and worst of motherhood with me. She’s been a true blessing to me!

  107. There are so many mothers that I am thankful for and they are perfect…most of all my own because I wouldn’t be any kind of a mother if it weren’t for her but today, as rude as this might sound, I am thankful for a different mother today. I could have an emotional breakdown, but I choose to hold it together. I could go back to my emotionally abusive and mentally ill husband of almost 20 years whose blatant disrespect of women was starting to rub off on my 4 daughters all under the age of 10 before I left last month but I choose to keep myself from taking that step. I could give up and not try to get a job after 17 years of being a stay at home mom because I will probably fail miserably at being a success at anything, but I choose to go out there and support my children anyway. Right now, I am at the end of my rope but I keep a smile on my face and laugh and play with my precious angels that deserve so much happiness and goodness out of this world. My daughters deserve to know that they should be treated with love, honor, and respect and not be controlled, manipulated, and man handled…for me to stay with their father would mean they would marry someone just like him and I cannot let that happen. I know I’m not the only one…so to all the mothers out there like me just barely hanging on…in a not so perfect life…we can do this. Don’t give up…I am thankful for you and your sacrifices because of you, your children will have a chance in this life. Thank you for being strong…no one else can do it for you..hang in there. Its just got to get better…muah!!!!

  108. My mom always strived to spend quality time with me. At times I felt she was too intrusive but now I know it meant she truly cared. Thanks to Metro Appliances for a chance to win something awesome!

  109. I am thankful for my mom. She raised five daughters with love and patience everyday. She is a breast cancer survivor and is truly the toughest/bravest lady around!

  110. I am thankful for my mother. When I was a single mom (now remarried) she was a big help babysitting so I could work and take care of my kids. I am thankful to Metro Appliances for this giveaway as well. My dryer is going out and I could really use the washer and dryer.
    Thank you,
    Joanne

  111. I’m thankful for my mother because she raised us alone for several years after my brother and I lost our dad in the line of duty. I couldn’t imagine life without her!

  112. My mom! She takes care of my daughter for me every day while I work. I can’t thank her enough!!

  113. I am thankful for having my Mother in my life. She helped to shape my life and later became my best friend. Although she is no longer here physically, she is forever with me.

  114. I am most thankful for my mom. She is the strongest woman I know. A wonderful woman. Plus, she taught me how to do laundry 😉

  115. Thankful for my mom who raised us in her own while going back to school. Love metro!! About to buy all our new kitchen appliances from them!

  116. This is a difficult question for me because I can think of three “best mom’s” (first and foremost, my mother). Second would have to go to my aunt who has always been a second mother in her caring and generous ways throughout my life. Third, would be my neighbor who fills in at random times when I don’t realize it’s a mothers wisdom that I need. It takes a village and I love the ladies I call mom.

  117. My husband and I are closing on our house November 23rd, so this would be amazing to win!

    My mother has been a rock in my life. She has endured so much trauma, yet still manages to be kind and caring to those who have done her wrong. I am now and will forever be great full for having such a strong role model. I have overcome so many of life’s challenges with my mother in my corner. Her tuff love when I was off my path and her comforting hugs to show her sincerity has molded me to the mother I am today. I can only strive to be a wonderful mother like her. ❤️

  118. I am thankful for my mom and all she did for me growing up. I am also thankful for all the mommy friends in my life.

  119. I had the best mother in the world. She was the rock in our family. She gave and gave then gave some more to support us in everything. She always worked to help Daddy make a living for us. She was room mother at our school. She would have extra people over to eat all the time. She believed in me and my brother. She raised us to live the Lord. She helped raise my kids after a divorce. I’ve always known my momma was so special. I just lost her 2/21/15 just less than three months shy of 92. I miss her so much but will see her again one day. When I was growing up we had no washer and dryer. Had to go to town to a laudromat. She would have loved this washer and dryer and I would also. Metro is the best place to shop for appliances.

  120. I am thankful for my own mother. She was always there for me and always put others before her own needs.

  121. Everyone knows their own mom (or a person who filled that role) is most special to them – and I’m
    No different! My mom is the best! She was the perfect mom for me growing up and now we are best friends as adults! I’m so very blessed that God placed me as her daughter:)!!

    And a huge shoutout to metro for making the giveaway possible!!

  122. I am most thankful for my own Momma!! She taught me everything I know about being a woman and being a mom. She’s the best!

  123. I am very thankful for my mom! She was patient with me while I was a terrible teen and has become my best friend and the best example I could ever hope for as I learn to raise my own kids!!

  124. I am so thankful for both my mom and mother-in-law! They are both amazing examples of what a Godly mother is all about! Shout out to NWA Motherlode for being an amazing resource for Mommies in NWA and to Metro Appliances for this giveaway!

  125. Every holiday is special since we spend it with family but even more so since my mom has been fighting cancer. She is so brave and continues to have an ” I can beat this” attitude. I’m thankful every day I call my mom and can hear her voice.

  126. I am grateful for many women in my life as they all taught me different things. Some taught me what not to do while others taught me what to do. The most influential Moms in my life though were my Great Granny and my Granny, one on each side of my family so I always had one or the other. As a child I didn’t fully appreciate them, oh how I wish I could go back and tell my Great Granny, but I do make it a habit of telling my Granny. They taught me to have faith, to pray, to be creative, strong, to use my manners and be patient. I’m still working on the patience part but I hope that by the time my baby is old enough to notice I’ll have it down. I also look forward to passing down the lessons I learned to my little girl. In the end, my Great Granny taught me the hardest lesson of all, how to let go. That one still hurts sometimes years later, but the memories I have of her will always be with me (I wrote them down just in case, that’s something else they taught me: to be smart and prepare).

  127. I am most thankful for my grandmother, Edith. She passed away in 2014 but gave me 30 plus years of love, encouragement, and joy. She was the rock of our family and is missed very much.

  128. I’m thankful for my own mother. She never fails to be there when I need her. She’s one of my best friends.

    I’m a newsletter subscriber, and I follow you on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook.

    Thank you and thanks to Metro Appliances for a great giveaway!!

  129. I am so honored to have my friend Clare in my life. She doesn’t judge, is compassionate and is such a positive influence in my life.

    Besos Sarah.

  130. I am Thankful for my mother who passed away when i was 20. I give thanks for having her 20 years of my life and for teaching me so much, and helping me grow into a mature, independent lady. Would love to win this washer and dryer my husband and I are in the process of building a home and will soon need to purchase a new washer and dryer.

  131. The mother I’m writing about today is not my own mother or step mother or mother-in-law. The mother I’m writing about is a friend. A friend who only deserves THE BEST.

    She gave birth to her first child a year ago. Her baby was born early and with many special medical needs & has not had one day outside of the hospital. Not only has her gorgeous baby girl been through many many surguries but this mama also had complications after giving birth. She has stayed so strong for her precious little girl, traveling back & forth to the hospital (3 hours each way for MONTHS), trying to keep a home running while her heart is left at the hospital.
    She NEEDS this new washer & dryer as all of her extra money is going toward medical care & travel expenses. She is an amazing mama & deserves an amazing reward for showing such strength, courage, faith & love through all that she’s been through this past year.

  132. I am thankful for my mom because she is the most selfless person I know. She is my inspiration to always try and be better than I am. Thanks Metro for this contest. Love the store!

  133. I am thankful for MY MOMMA! She is at home taking care of my 2 month old baby now that I’m back at work. She’s a great mother and grandmother.

  134. I am so thankful to for my sister-in-love. I have never seen such amazing strength as she has shown for almost one year while watching her baby girl go through much more than any mother ever should. I have watched her strength and standing tall and strength in falling completely apart and just being okay with that. She will need a washer and dryer that is dependable and will keep baby safe, clean, and allergen free!

  135. I have been blessed with the greatest mother a girl could ask for. She does everything in her power to help all her children and grand children, she never ask for anything in return, she is a perfect example
    for myself and my daughter of what a true lady should be.
    I love you Mom.
    Tina “BOP”

  136. I am so thankful for my mom. As someone who lost her own mom when she was young, she has been an amazing mom to me and my brother! She has been my rock and kept me going through the hardest of times.

  137. Thankful for my mom, all that she does to help me with my kids. The special things that she does for my kids alone can fill up paragraphs…

  138. I am thankful for my mom, without her I don’t think that I would have been able to make it as a one parent home. She raised 6 of us and did the best she could. It’s because of her that I work and try so hard for my children. I didn’t intent to be a one parent household but sometimes that is the way that it is meant to be… I have taken a lot of what she taught and didn’t teach to make a brighter path for the great loves of my life, for that I will forever be thankful.

  139. My mom taught both my brother and I to be independent–including doing our own laundry early on. I’m grateful to her for that and so many other things she taught me.

  140. I am so grateful for the my mama friends who are so willing to help me and each other out with our kids. We take turns picking the kids up from school and look after each other’s kids when needed. My mama friends make my life easier and more enjoyable.

  141. I am thankful for my friend Stephanie, she is a mom of 3 who came along and has invested in mentoring me both spiritually and in “mom things”.

    I am also thankful for my mother who got to be a part of the births of all 3 of my boys. As a mom of 5 her advice was quite helpful for me.

  142. I am very thankful for all the Moms in my life! My Mother, My wife and my Mother-in-law. Could not make it without each of them!

  143. I am so very thankful for my mother! She is truly an inspiration. She does so much for my brothers, sisters and I. She is one of a kind and would do anything for anyone. We are very blessed to still have her in our lives and I, out of all my siblings, do not know what I’ll do when the good Lord decides to take her home, to be with my loving father up above.

  144. my mom and I don’t get along well. but I am thankful for her. she has done the best that she could.

  145. My mom— if it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t be who I am today! Very, very thankful for her and pray that I can be the same kind of momma to my two girls!

  146. I am thankful for my own Mother. She is the most amazing, kind, compassionate woman. Sometimes I think she is secretly an angel. She is very soft spoken and I’ve never in my life heard her yell at anyone. She is always volunteering to help those in need, taking care of the elderly and up all night sewing or making things for the kids in our family. She truly is amazing and I look up to her everyday!

  147. First of all a shout out thank you to Metro Appliances!!!I am super thankful to my own mother, Lori Holyfield, for all that she has done for me. She has sacrificed in so many ways.she has played a major role in teaching me to be the woman I am today!

  148. Moms are are wonderful, but mine truly is the best! She shows me unconditional love every single day. Love her more than life itself!

  149. I’m thankful for my friend and mom of 5, Mary. She’s my voice of reason, hope, uncommon sence, and she keeps me grounded.

  150. I am thankful for my mom, who along with my dad raised four children. I am also thankful for my husband’s mom, for raising an awesome man for me to marry and also for loving me as much as my mom loves me.

    Thank you Metro Appliances!

  151. I am thankful for my own Momma! She raised 3 girls and always sacrificed so us 3 girls could have the best she and my dad could provide!

  152. I am so thankful for my mother. She is so strong and full of joy. I remember when she found out that she had breast cancer. She told the doctor I don’t have time for this. I have to finish my masters degree so my grandkids can see my named stamped on the sidewalk at the U of A. And she is cancer free as of 10 years and her name is stamped on the sidewalk. She is still going strong. She’s the best, and she inspires me to push through anything that I have to face.

  153. So grateful & thankful for my momma. She has the biggest heart, always putting other’s needs before her own. She’s not perfect but she certainly has unconditional love for my brother’s family and mine. She’s a jewel! Also want to give a Huge Thank You to Metro for such generosity!

  154. I am thankful for my mom who not only sacrificed anything necessary to make sure we had everything we needed and most of what we wanted, but also taught me how to use a washer & dryer, how to iron, and how to cook for myself all by the time I was 12! She taught me self-sufficiency which is a priceless gift!

  155. My mom is my best friend. She has been there for me so many times and continues to be with my brother in the loss of his leg in a motorcycle accident in August. She is a true blessing from God.

  156. My mom — is a hero,. she married very young, dropped out of school and entered into an abusive relationship, desperate and broke she got herself out of that marriage after her husband caused her to miscarriage. She remarried and was a hardworking, christian mom who not only loved, cared for and sewed for 4 daughters–but our entire life welcomed foster kids and older college kids who had no place to live while trying to go to college. My mom sacrificed everything that she wanted professionally — until I (the youngest child) was in high school — she received GED, then she received her BS college degree and then she graduated with her Masters– with me.

  157. I’m thankful for my own mother. In the 19 years I had her in my life, I could count on her for anything at any time. She gave me the best childhood, provided the best home and created wonderful memories that make me smile even as they make me cry. I miss her so.

  158. My mom was a single mother and raised three of us on her own with no financial assistance from anyone. She was both the mother and father and raised us to be strong and stand up for ourselves and what we believe in. She also taught us to give to others less fortunate. Even during our own financial struggles, she gave to others. I’m raising my kids to do the same.

  159. My mama has always been an awesome mom. From letting us eat popcicles for breakfast on the first day of summer vacation to choosing to move to NWA after retirement to be close to her kids and grandkids. I’m grateful for her advice, guidance and hands-on grandparenting.

  160. I am grateful for my sister-ma. She took care of me as a child when my mom worked evenings and as an adult when I had breast cancer. She is who I go to when I have problems. She rocks!

  161. I am thankful for my mother in law. She is always so great with my kids. She tries to help out as much as possible, and they love her so much.

  162. My momma, Janet and My sister, Amy are both mommas I am thankful for. They both are giving, strong, and supportive of not only me but every life they touch! Love them

  163. I am thankful for my mom. Even though I am a mother myself now, she still goes above and beyond to help me every chance she gets. I am a single mother trying to hold down a full time job plus take care of my kids and hold down the house, my mom taught me the strength and perseverance it takes to survive this world. She is busy healing from a massive stroke that took part of her cerebellum but she is a fighter and has taught me even more during this so very difficult time. I am so thankful that she is alive and that she is MY momma! Blessed! Thank you very much to Metro Appliances & More for giving this opportunity! FANTASTIC IDEA!

  164. I am SO very thankful for my own mom. She is a loving, giving, helpful, protective mother to 4 daughters and 7 grandchildren. She helps us all as much as she can. As a single mother I rely on her heavily! Now, she is relying on us as she heals from a massive stroke that took part of her cerebellum. So thankful she is still with us and proud to have learned how to be a great mom from the best Momma I know! I love you Momma! Thank you very much to Metro Appliances & More for this opportunity!

  165. I am very grateful for my own mama. She raised me by herself, and did a great job doing so. Now, she’s a wonderful grandma to my children!

  166. I am thankful for my mom … She gives selflessly so much and so often. I see it more and more as an adult and as a mother myself just how much she gives away for the sake of others.

  167. I have lots of Moms in my life. My Mom is always there when I need her and my work Mom’s are always looking out for me!

  168. My Aunt Elaine is my second Mom and I am so thankful for her! She was the person I talked to when I needed someone other than my Mom to confide in. She has also been a room mate and a landlord (with crazy cheap rent) in the past to help me get on my feet after college and after a big life change.

  169. I am super thankful for the group of moms that have been my friend since junior high (obviously long before we were moms). But with every stage of life we have been there for each other…especially motherhood.

    And Metro Appliance IS amazing. We’ve purchased many appliances there and both my husband and myself have worked with them on commercial projects. They have great products and a great staff. Thank you very much for making this donation.

  170. I’m most thankful for my mom. She raised my brothers and I with such love and grace. She has been my rock! I’m so lucky to have a perfect model of how to raise my three girls. Love you mama!!

  171. I truly feel that mothers are one of life’s blessings as well as gifts from God. The mom I am most thankful for would definitely be my own! It’s hard to just give one single reason why I am so thankful for my mother because she has definitely shaped me into the person I am today ❤️ Encourager, supporter, advice giver, amazing Mimi to my son, and a giver of unconditional love are just a few things of many that my mom has been/given to me. I truly have been blessed to have such an amazing mom!!

  172. I’m thankful for my mom. She’s a strong women in Christ and a prayer warrior. She taught me through our troubles God is always in control and to pray, pray, pray. I’ve had some difficult situations in life but it’s nothing God couldn’t handle! Thanks to my mom for always reminding me of that.

  173. I am thankful for my own mom who raised me to stand on my own and do things myself, with or without a man by your side.

  174. I am so thankful and grateful for my own mother. During those hard teenage years I swore I never be like her. WELL….guess what?!?! I am just like her and so glad I am! 🙂

  175. My mom Pam Garvey is amazing! She raised three great kids. My sister is mentally handicapped and my mom has done so much to help her and never limit her. She has retired from Child Protective Services after 12 years and has helped bring many families back together and healed.

  176. I am thankful for so many wonderful ladies.. My momma, My Grandmama, Karen Lee Watts, Gayle Honea, Molly Lewis, Tammy Watkins, Kimberly Schaap, Pam Selby, Shelia Paczowski, Lisa Hamby-Hastings, Pam Hooppaw, Stephanie Wirges, Meloney Barnes.. At some point in my life, each of these women have guided me through a problem or just been by my side when I needed a friend!
    BUT I am most thankful for my wonderful Momma!! She instilled kindness and generosity and selflessness in me from an early age.. She showed through her actions that I was her greatest treasure. I have been blessed with many great ladies throughout my lifetime who have taught me many lessons.. I hope someone can say the same thing about me one day!! I would love to win this set!! Metro Appliances and NWA Motherlode ROCK!!
    Good Luck to all the Mamas out there !!

  177. I’m very thankful for my mom. She has been through a lot the last year and half in loosing my dad but she has been a pillar of strength for me. I admire her courage and her resolve to start a new journey!

  178. My grandmother was a true blessing to have. She taught me how to be positive in life, what true happiness is, how to possess strength and how to laugh. Her stories were inspiring. I miss them and her dearly. Thank you for this opportunity. Woohoo Metro is the best!!!!

    I follow you on facebook Pinterest and instagram

  179. My mom and mother in law are both truly the most beautiful and graceful ladies I’ve ever been blessed enough to meet and I’m so grateful to have them as examples on what a mother and lady of life should be like. They both have the most generous and giving hearts and do it all selflessly, and often anonymously, and without ever hesitating. They always have a kind word, a loving smilie and hug, help whenever needed and love more than I deserve. It’s not just family they do this for though, it’s anyone with a need who is fortunate enough to cross paths with them. They’re angels on earth in my eyes.

  180. I meant to add that I follow on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, get the newsletter, shared on Facebook and Twitter. Oops! Thanks!

  181. I’m thankful for my Mom friend Amy. She always has my back and is an amazing friend and mother.

    I’m also thankful for Metro Appliances for doing this awesome give away!

  182. Good morning! My mom is amazing! She has always been there for me through not one but two divorces. She has always sacrificed for me and my sister, along with all her grandchildren. She would give you the shirt of her back. She is our Pastor’s wife and my best friend. We talk about everything and I always know I can trust her. God knew what he was doing when He gave me her for my mom.

  183. I am thankful for my mother. I’m thankful she is able to see another year, because of her gift of life. This past January she received the kidney she so desperately needed. I am thankful not only for her, but also for the donor who died to give this gift of life.

  184. I am thankful for my mom. I am thankful she is able to see another year. My mom had been on dialysis for the past 7 years and in January she received a kidney. I am thankful for not only my mother, but to also the donor who died and gave this gift of life to my mother.
