But seriously, I am so happy to be a part of Project Run &Play. I am stretching, and growing, and making friends, and just so happy to be involved!
This is where I get a little sappy:
-thank you to every friend, family member, and follower who took the time to not only look at baby girl's wolfie outfit, but also vote for it.
-Thank you for all of the AMAZING comments that you left on the blog encouraging me through the weekend.
-Thank you for your e-mails and stories and comments from your kiddos.
-Thank you for walking with me on this journey; however long the road may be.
Last weekend was nerve wrecking as I tried to spread the word to family and friends to vote for me while trying not to look at the results (every five minutes ;op). By Saturday I realized I was dead last in the people's vote and finally forced myself to STOP looking at the votes... the voting is 50/50 - half the score coming from the people's vote and half coming from the judges. It was out of my hands and I wasn't going to change anything by staring at numbers. But here is the thing that really hit me on Saturday... I don't have 150 followers, I don't have 150 friends and family members who would vote for me on a sewing competition, I WAS getting part of the public vote. People were voting for ME, not because they know me or are related to me, but because they liked what I made. WOW, just WOW!!!
I also had some amazing encouragement from some of the other competitors (this is seriously an amazing group of women!!!)
Shannon sent me this verse:
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ
and I stumbled across this quote on FB:
'Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength.'~Corrie Ten Boom
I am so excited to share my next look with you all on FRIDAY. I hope you will all come back to see what I have made and vote for your favorite over at PR&P. Every single vote counts, and I appreciate every one that I receive!!!
Until then, HUGS!
