Yesterday #42 started out in 1st position … and soon fell back to 2nd,
much to voter’s dismay.
Here is what #42 (Betty) had to say in an email to me:
“Honestly, I was thrilled to have hit number one, and was excited to
think that I might be the winner if my kitchen could remain in the
number one position. Then, today, I was a little 'down' about the
dip, but I thought....new kitchen or no new kitchen, it's been a great
blessing that so many people whom I don't even know have taken their
time to vote for me every day, over the last several days.”
I sensed she was bracing herself for disappointment, as her strongest
competitor (#83) had held 1st position for a long time. I received
emails from many of you, letting me know that she’d slipped back and I
felt the upset. My thoughts were that folks had not gotten around to
voting yet and sure enough, #42 moved back into 1st place once again!!
That ‘scare’ really demonstrated a need not to fall into complacency
and slow down, figuring there are enough other people voting to carry
her through. Thank you to all who continue to vote, and special
thanks to those who’ve asked more of your friends to join in. It is
making the difference.
As I was getting ready to send this off I checked
and unfortunately #83 is back in 1st place and #42 is in 2nd
We have today, Thursday and Friday until 4:59 p.m. CDT to go.
I wouldn’t want to interject anything negative into this contest……but
I am declaring ‘joyful’ WAR. Please everyone, ask just one other
person to join us in voting. The battle is on!!! Let’s see #42
through to victory!!!
Thank you, thank you,
