    Awww. I want to win because if I win, I’m gonna give my gift to Witchypoo so she can use it for her granny. I love the elderly and I hope to be one some day so I think we should all be nicer to them. Even when they are cranky (cuz that one might be me). πŸ˜‰

    Well, my message would sort of be for two people. I recently adopted our beautiful daughter from China. I would write a thank you to her birth mother for giving us life’s greatest gift. However, we don’t don’t who her birthmother is, so I would have my daughter hold onto it as a keepsake. Then she could someday add her own thank you, too and remember the special woman who loved her enough to let her go.

    I wish I could see a picture of the bottle (links aren’t working), but I would like to brighten the day of either my sister-in-law or my friend, who are both having some hard times right now.

  • I’d love to give this to my mother has been depressed lately. One of my sisters has been treating her coldly for no reason and I just want her to know that rest of her family loves her and appreciates her. πŸ™‚

  • My husband gave me a message in a bottle one year when we were apart due to a move. It was so sweet and romantic.
    Great idea!

    I’d LOVE to feature it on my blog close to Valentine’s day next year!

    I would give this to my nephew. He is only 7 years old and loves to get surprises. He currently wants to dig in the yard to find gemstones. I bet he would love to find a message in a bottle.

  • OK..mine is going to sound like a sob story…but it’s true!
    My husband is going on a mission trip to Romania in June. He will be gone 12 days. I have NEVER been away from him that long. I have never slept in our house without him for more than 2 days! He is my heart and I can’t imagine how hard it is going to be…although I know God is calling him there. I know there are wives whose husbands are away all the time…and I probably sound like such a whiner…LOL. but i am totally not used to this and it will be sooo difficult. Not only that but we have 3 children and a small farm going on! It’s going to be a lot to keep up with….along with my normal cleaning and cooking!

    So I told you all that to say that I would write a message to my sweet husband and put it in his carry on bag so he will find it sometime after he is gone! Just to remind him how loved he is and how proud of him I am that he is on a mission to help show others the love of Christ! πŸ™‚

  • I would give it to my nieces (9 & 13). They live in Mozambique and homeschool, and it would be great to brighten their day with something beautiful. They so often brighten mine by playing with my little girl and entertaining her.

    And the bottle would be symbolic – across the ocean, so to speak.

    (I do have a US mailing address.)

    I met my boyfriend when I was 12, on the bus. He was 15. We were best friends until I turned 21 and we started dating. We have been together for seven years now. Without him, I don’t know what I would do. I was in a horrible car accident and my ankle and foot were crushed. I was in a wheelchair for a year and this many years later (5), I am still struggling. He bought a new car so he could fit my wheelchair in his trunk and took me to college classes everyday so I could finish. Now, I am a high school English teacher, just completing my first year of teaching. It is hard on us, because he is unemployeed and has bad health problems (diabetes), so we are still struggling financially and emotionally, because it is very stressful to be a teacher in a city school. I try not to bring home my problems, but it happens. He is so supportive, and since he doesn’t have a job right now, I haven’t touched a dish (we don’t have a dishwasher), or cleaned much of anything since I started teaching. He is wonderful and I would love to have that message in a bottle for him. He is a very sentimental person, so I know it would truly touch his heart.

  • I would give this to my hubby, our anniversary is next month. πŸ™‚ I love him so much. I have a chronic illness and I’m really sick sometimes and really can’t do a whole lot but he has stuck by me and is always helping me and trying to help make me better.

    I’d love to make it for my husband. He could put it in his office at work. That way when things get rough he could look at it and know how much the kids and I love him.

    I would send this to my 12 year old daughter..who is my hero..and loves receiving surprises in the mail…She battles chronic illness daily..dysautonomia with pots…had to quit school to be homeschooled..had to give up riding her passion..but she still looks for everything beautiful and wonderful…like the quote says “life can not be measured by how many breaths you take ..but by the moments that take your breath away” Each day she takes my breath away..I love you Hannah

  • My message would be for my boyfriend. Right now he is in Arizona and I’m in Florida. We’ve known each other since we were 12, but just recently has it been a time when we could be together. I’m moving the end of the summer, but it’s really hard being apart.

    That’s a really cool prize.

    Thanks for entering me.

  • One of my best friends from high school decided that after graduating college, she was going to give up the many job offers she had to go to Africa and teach school. What she gets paid barely covers her living expenses, but even so, anything she can spare she gives to the street kids who are orphans living in boxes and eating out of garbage cans. I know that every day she’s there she misses home – the simple comforts of having a bed that is clean, electricity that is reliable, and showers that are warm – but she feels it is her calling to be there, helping kids who are less fortunate than even the poorest children in the United States. I’d love to send her a message of encouragement and hope.

    Great giveaway – its nice to see someone giving away something that the winner can also give away to pass on the love!

  • I’d love to have a message sent to my Aunt. She is more like a mother to me, and grandmother to my girls than my own mother. If I ever need anything all I have to do is ask her and she will drop everything to help me out. She just found out that she is going to be a grandmother herself a couple of weeks ago. I’d love to be able to surprise her with a special message like this. This is so up her alley.

  • As I was thinking about Mother’s Day, I thought about my friend Sarah who has a baby who turned 1 in February and has spent most of his life in the hospital. He was born with a genetic disorder and has multiple defects, the most significant being with his heart. I’d love to reach out to her this Mother’s Day as I can’t imagine being separated from my son for even 1 day let alone the amount of time her son has been in the hospital
