I have faithfully entered for many, many years into the Publisher’s Clearing House sweepstakes! In fact, I receive reminder emails daily and enter that way. I haven’t won as of yet, but you never know. My favorite line is “you can’t win if you don’t play,” right?
Growing up, my single mom worked hard to make sure my brother and I had the necessities plus some! Now, with my own 5 kids and a disabled hubby, we also struggle daily, but try our best to ensure that our kids always have a roof over their heads, clothes on their backs, and good food to eat. Sound familar? Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry so much about those things?
So, what would YOU do with an extra $5,000 a week for life?! I can imagine SO many things I would do with mine:
- Build / buy a house – our very own home. Living in an apartment complex for several years is not what I want to do.. but it’s affordable. One day I hope to have a home that my family and I can be proud of .. one that we can make our own with beautifully painted walls, carpeting, lush landscaped yard, and the ability to customize just about every aspect of our home. Man.. that would be the life!
- Purchase a trustworthy vehicle. I adore my 2002 Ford Explorer, but with over 250,000 miles .. it’s starting to feel the aches and pains. A car payment at this time would be a luxury that I cannot afford, so we keep driving and praying that “Charlie” keeps on keepin’ on for another year or so. Winning $5,000 a week would mean no issue with having a car payment – I could easily afford to purchase a car that is dependable, safe, and travel worthy – we can put some miles on our vehicles.
- Give money to help my family. With my mom and grandmother on a fixed income, and my mother-in-law on her own since my father-in-law’s passing last November, I would send them money regularly to help them live out the rest of their lives comfortably and without worry. I would also make sure that my children would always have a little nest egg to fall back on in hard times and for my grandchildren’s college funds and necessities as well.
- Share the wealth. I believe in Paying It Forward, and would undoubtedly share my winnings with some causes near and dear to my heart: Veterans Services, Cancer Research, Children’s Illnesses and Disabilities, Animal Welfare, and Disaster Relief.
- Realizing my dream. Last but not least, winning the Forever Prize would enable my family and I to move to Hawaii (my dream), set up our dream business right on the beach, and utilize all of our skills to make it successful and earn a good living. The hubby and I have many years of restaurant experience in cooking, serving, and bartending, so this would be the main focus of our “beach hut.” Next, we would put to use our daughter’s handy work with hair – corn rows, extensions, braids, etc. I have many more ideas for our business if and WHEN this dream becomes a reality.
I’m sure you’re familiar with the PCH television commercials where they pull up outside someone’s home with a big paper check and announce them a winner?! Well, a few days ago, a beautiful black limousine pulled up in front of our apartment, and I almost had a heart attack. Unfortunately, they weren’t there for us, nor were they the Publisher’s Clearing House folks, but what a beautiful fantasy I had for just a few short moments.
The Publisher’s Clearing House “Forever” Prize is set to be given away at the end of this month! Now are you ready for this?
