  100. I would gift it to my mom to use for the upcoming 5th anniversary of my father's passing. She finally has a boyfriend who she could use it with and I genuinely have not seen her happy in the 5 years since his passing, until now.

    ReplyDelete
  101. My mom and brother would never expect a gift like this. They truly would appreciate it after being the 24/7 caretakers of my father this year. I want to send them on a vacation and would be so gracious to win this sweepstakes. Only a true act of kindness and love can be expressed in giving. My mom dropped everything in March to be at my dad's side when he was diagnosed with stage four ademocarinoma with an unknown primary (cancer). My mom was there for my dad through 27 years of marriage and gave him all her. My dad passed away on November 25, 2014. Giving the gift of vacation and time for her to heal would be the best is this season of giving and bring joy to others.

  130. I would give it to my mother. She has worked so hard to allow my two sisters and I to go through college and has given us many other amazing opportunities. I would not be where I am today without her and I'm so incredibly thankful for everything she has done for me and my family. My mom is constantly working. She does so much for others and she's alwasy making sure her kids have everything they need. She deserves a break to go somewhere nice, relax, and do something for herself. Her favorite thing to do on vacation is to sit on the beach and read. This would be perfect and a wonderful way to thank you.

  138. This place looks delightful!! Would love to visit for my honeymoon next year!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I would definitely give it to my sister because she has never had a vacation, basically all her life and has been through hell and back. She has always loved and cared for me and the rest of the family, including the ailing adults. Ever since I was a baby, she was like a surrogate mother to me even though she herself had a turbulent childhood.

    Her never-ending continued support of my husband and I in our goals and dreams means the world to me. She's loving, kind, giving, and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. I know no one else like her--she's an angel who needs a luxurious vacation and a man who loves her for her. If I can win the first of those for her, it would be a great first vacation for my sister, who is now edging closer to 50 years old. There aren't enough words to describe how much she puts others first and is forgiving to even the most awful people in her life.

    I truly want to win this for her because I feel as if everybody else has failed her and I want to see her finally relax and enjoy herself. This would just be the sweetest treat and an amazing tropical getaway she has always longed for and highly deserves!
