1031 Signatures and beyond...

So 1031 is a big number...but not when you have all the support and teamwork from your friends, family and co-workers!! When I heard the challenge...I didn't know what to think. Sure it was a challenge, but how will thsi change my life? What impact could it possibly have just to get signatures? Well, I sure found out quickly the true impact of this challenge.

As soon as I got out of the radio station, I started texting people to see if they would help. It was my day off and I had planned on spending it with my son since I haven't spent as much time with his as I usually do in the past week. I quickly found out that my co-worker Pearl was on a mission and was talking about the contest and my challenges to everyone along with getting their signatures. My best friend Isabelle did an AMAZING job at getting over 300 signatures for me...and so many more helped out. The support was INCREDIBLE!!! I couldn't believe it! People went out of their way to help me conquer this challenge. I can't describe the feeling. But I would have never guessed what was coming next...

I decided that I would go out to the bars to get signatures. It's a great way to mingle with people and they are usually in a good mood...and besides, it was the only free time I would have to get signatures. My friend Isabelle and Sylvie joined me and off we went. The experience was beyond anything I could ever imagine. Tons of people had seen the article in the newspaper and were following the contest on the radio. Men and women were complimenting me on the picture, but even more so on how proud I should be of myself. People were praising me above and beyond anything I could have possibly expected. Complete strangers were behind me 100% supporting and encouraging me. I may have only been asking for signatures but got SO MUCH MORE in return.

It was amazing to meet so many wonderful people and feel people's genuine support!!

THANK YOU to all of you who took the time to sign and talk to me and share your thoughts and feelings!! You have all warmed my heart and made me that much more determined to conquer anything that is thrown at me!!

much love to all!!
