    I struggle to keep my house clean with 2 children ages 3 and 5, because I simply I want to spend time with them. At the same time, I know that I need to get things in order. I clean throughout the day, but somehow I never truly do the best job that I can do. Would love to get some serious deep, down cleaning done!

    I’m actually entering for a friend. She’s raising three kids on her own, and working multiple jobs to do it. I know she’d love to get a break from all the household chores!

    My mom would love to have her room cleaned.she is living with us and shares the room with a 9 year old. The room is always messy. This simple act of the room being cleaned will bring tears to her heart.

    Mom is still working as a first grade teacher to send me through college, just as she did for my sister(11 yrs older) and my brother(5 yrs older). Trying to keep a house as my sister and her family move into their new house, and are staying with us, and my brother is preparing to get married(also living at home), has become a huge stressor and very taxing. She really deserves to have a day off where she doesn’t have to do a thing, and isn’t worried about anyone not doing things to her standard!

    My wonderful mother is a mom of two teenage kids. As if raising teenagers wasn’t hard as it is, her health isn’t the greatest either. She was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at age 13 and has been living with it for 37 years now. She also has been diagnosed with pancreatitis, fibromyalgia, and depression. She has had 9 stomach surgeries since her teenage years and because of all the scar tissue is having problems with her food being able to go down from her stomach. Every time she eats, even the slightest bit, she gets violently ill and needs to take pain medication and lay down. Because of all of this she has a hard time doing things let alone get a job or clean. She is also dealing with the financial burden of my brothers hockey career and the $150,000 we have spent on it. She rarely gets to see him too because he moved to Colorado at the age of 15 to play hockey and live with a billot family. Needless to say, my mother is a great woman and I only pray that she gets this opportunity to show her just how appreciated she really is. Thanks so much!

    My 82-year-old mother fell last week and fractured her tibial plateau. She and my dad live independently very well, but of course she will have very limited mobility for the next 3 months. A cleaning service would be such a bright spot during this depressing time for her.

    I believe my mother deserves to win this wonderful prize because she has been helping me with my newborn daughter and I’m a first time mother who realizes how much she has done for me! Thank you for the opportunity! Plus her house needs it desperately! ;)

    My mom is a single mother that works long hours and then takes care of me and our 5 rescue pets. She really could use the help and use a little break.

    Our Mom deserves this house cleaning because she is always doing for others. She teaches Kindergarteners all day, volunteers for extra (unpaid) jobs at her school and in her community. She worries about and provides for her Mother who has Dementia. She sings in local choirs and practices & performs regularly with them. She loves a clean home but is hardly there and when she is she is too exhausted (mentally & physically) to clean as often as she would like. This would mean the world to all of us for her but especially to our Mother!!! Thank you!!!

    My mom really deserves to have her house cleaned. She’s 72, takes care of my 93 yr old grandpa and my 38 yr old, blind brother.

    My mom deserves to have her house cleaned because she cleaned mine and took care of my family effortlessly while I recovered from cancer surgery. She cleaned, cooked, ran my kids to all of their practices, helped me shower and stood by my side! Now I would love to give back!

    My mother just celebrated her 92nd birthday. She is still living in her home where she has lived since 1951. It is a tiny house and she does not have much room, but it is home and she loves it there. She is a retired math teacher and when her health was good, traveled all over the US and Europe. 2010-2011 were tough times for her. Starting with a pacemaker installation in May 2010 (on her birthday), then in Nov she was operated on for a meningioma (benign brain tumor). Following surgery was four weeks In a rehab hospital where she slowly got her walking and talking back. She was hospitalized two more times for dehydration in December and January and was becoming independent again when on Ferbruary 2nd, 2011 fell and broke her hip. Another surgery, hospital stay and rehabilitation for the new hip plus one more hospitalization for dehydration was in store.
    I shared all that to provide background and show how far she has come. She always kept a nice house, but with her brain surgery, although she is healed, her mind will never be the same. Her sense of organization and energy to clean her house are not what it used to be. Everyone says it is best for her to remain in her home and I think having the Merry Maids coming in would help her with things she cannot do anymore.

    I deserve to win. I have had reconstructive foot surgery seven weeks ago. I have not been able to vacume!! Hard to vacume from a wheel chair and I have min 6 more weeks to go. I worked two sometimes three jobs to be sure my children went to college. Now they have family’s of their own. They help me with money some but I won’t ask them to clean for me. One lives I’m another state and has a special needs child herself!!

    My mom really needs this, she had knee surgery so its hard for her to do a lot of house work, also she lost her husband, my father, last year due to a heart attack she can really use the extra help , this would be a wonderful gift for my mother, as I would love to see a big smile on her face when she sees a maid show up to help her out. Thanks

    Because I am disabled from a car accident my hubby works full time & when he’s home he does a lot for our kids & myself so our home gets neglected unfortunately. This would be a mothers day blessing for my family.

    Cleaning takes her away from the stuff she loves to do, spending time with her friends and family!

    because she’s the only one that ever cleans and it’s someone else’s turn. plus, a clean house always brings a smile on her face

    Because cleaning house is her least favorite thing to do.

    My mom deserves to have her house cleaned because she is always so selfless. Mom took care of her father, my grandfather, up until his passing in March. Due to so much of her time spent helping him at his house, the care of her own house went on the back burner. Mom has spent years remodeling and updating our childhood home and it just needs a little care to show off her hard work!

    My mother who has raised 5 children is on constant oxygen due to emphysema and chronic bronchitis. She is very often confined to her bedroom and for her to have a clean home would help to bring much joy into her life!!

    My mother in laws home is always sparkling as well – again she has a husband who likes to stay clean and helps out. As I said – my hubby is growing and getting much better in this department. But at the same time – no complaints – as I do stay home while he provides for our family – but I still deserve a break from the everyday. :P

    My moms home is always sparkling clean – she has a great husband who helps keep things sparkling, so she wouldn’t even use this. Me – I feel I deserve this and excuse my selfishness here – but I feel I deserve this as I have a pig of a husband who is so messy and although tries and has improved – rarely cleans up behind himself. I also have 2 boys – teenager and preteen – in home, who follow in dads footsteps. Yes I created it – but I clean up behind them all. all the time. I doubt that my children or husband would enter such giveaways (they don’t get on facebook – or internet)and I know my husband can’t afford to pay for a day like this as I know he wished he could. I doubt they even know mothers day is coming up, but I am sure last minute they will try to make my day, just wish I didn’t have to remind them when it was. :P

    As the Director of our local Emergency Department, Laura spends her days helping others during their time of need. She’s also the mother of 2 young (and very active) boys. Laura deserves this help to clean her house because she spends all her time focusing on others.

    My mom is a retired army wife who raised 5 children. After 30 years of raising kids and following my dad all over the world I think she deserves a clean house! :-)

    My Mom could really use some help. At 86 she just can’t do what she once could. She would really appreciate this prize.

    My beautiful mother more than deserves to have her house cleaned; she’s just flat out earned it. While the three of us children were young, my parents chose to move us to rural Texas. Ensuring we would grow up with rural neighbors, friends, and not get lost in the hustle of the big city. Moving to a small town also meant we could live out our family’s agricultural roots. However, as with most small communities, there are limited options for employment and other things. For 10+ years of grade school I watched both my parents sacrifice driving into the DFW metroplex (an hour drive each way without traffic) so they could provide for our family while still allowing us to grow up in a small town.

    With three children who played sports, showed livestock, worked in the garden, and did countless other projects – my mother never had a dull moment. But she’s never complained. She always rose early in the morning and was on the road about the time we would get up to head to the barn to start our morning; then she would make the drive home at the end of the day and between the three of us there was almost always an event, meeting, game, or activity to be at – and God willing she made just about every one. Never complained of being tired or weary or just wanting a day for herself. Because the sacrifices to her were all worth it – we are her children and her greatest pride. No amount of long drives, lost sleep, and piles of laundry could ever discount that. So sometimes the house would get left as the last consideration – because we were her first priority.

    Now let me be clear – my mom never let the house get dirty, which is exactly why she’s earned this prize. She deserves to come home after a long week and have someone else have to go to work instead of her. I know there are great moms every where, but I can’t think of a more selfless or caring person than my mother. She continues to put others needs before her own and does so with a smile and grateful heart. We are so blessed to have her.
