3 Million Hits!

Today, we hit the 3,000,000 mark. We continue to be amazed by how God is using our story and that anyone, much less tens of thousands, would be this interested in our lives. Thank you, as always, for helping to make this journey what it is.

And, maybe even more amazing...Anne, the person who was the 3 Millionth hit, actually took a picture of her computer screen and sent it to me.


How cool is that?

And another amazing thing is that you've already had 18,000 hits since you hit a million! Love it. I'm a mother of a 2 yr old with CF, and I'm so glad you're getting the word out!

Yipee!!!! 3 million!!!
And wow, thanks Anne that was a great idea to take the picture!

Just gotta add 'cause I didn't yesterday that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures of Tricia feeding Gwyneth. Glad to see Gwyn enjoying her many new outfits :-)
Isn't it fun when they reach the stage where you can dress and undress them several times a day.

Rhea said...

That's great! Some of my former CF patients are doing super great after transplant! Hoping the same for Tricia. Continued prayers.

What a mighty God we serve who is using your open and honest heart to increase awareness and therefore cure for CF and organ donation. Also, to turn their heart toward Jesus! Tenille Rauls

I just found your blog today through another's, and I wanted to say that you truly do have an incredible and amazing family story to share. Your family is just beautiful, and what a blessing it is to have both of your girls doing well. May God continue to bless you 3, and I look forward to hearing about the exciting things that await you all! ......A reader in Ohio

amy said...

This may be a stupid question, but does your total include people like me who subscribe through a blog reader (like bloglines)?

Sue said...

I think Anne deserves a prize!

april said...

so cool Nate!

btw I signed our state donor registry the other night! All because of this blog and Tricia's story! way to go!

Julie Stanton said...

Way cool move Anne! When I first saw the picture, I was wondering how Nate captured that. I had visions of him sitting on the edge of his seat with his computer in front of him pushing the refresh button over and over - like when you hit redial over and over to win a radio station contest!!! I especially like the picture of Tricia right next to the 3,000,000. It looks like it was like that on purpose!

twin power mommy said...

pretty cool. like that the 3 mill. pic shows tricia's beautiful face. how perfect is that?!

The Adoption Of William said...

Very Cool! So much to go through and Tricia still has such a beautiful smile. I cannot wait to see all of you home together.

God is GOOD!

With Love,

William's Mom

Yay! I'm glad you got that shot. It's just kinda cool to have. You know?

Karen said...

And the hits just keep on comin'!

What a testimony... proof positive that you all are loved!

I checked in yesterday afternoon and was 1,999,696, and really wanted to be 2,000,000! Way to go, Anne!

Praying, praying, praying!

John & Michelle said...

How awesome!!! Anne is too cool! Your story is renewing faith in so many and showing how amazing faith is to countless others that might otherwise not be witnessed to! God is using your family in miraculus ways every day!!!! Still praying in Illinois,
Michelle

erin said...

I am sure you have considered this already since you are a master blogger :) but why not consider running ads since you have so many hits you could make some serious money to help off set all of your time out of work and to raise money for CF? I dont think anyone here would judge you for doing that I would still support you and Trish. One of my co workers makes a lot of money and he does not have nearly the hits you have. Anyway I know you have thought of this I just wanted to give you my 2Cents which I know you dont need! :) Glad to hear all is well in your world.

Julie said...

Lots of cool updates! I especially think the CF connection thing is interesting. There's so many times people are connected by a common thread, but they just don't know it.

The Tranas said...

Aww, that is so sweet! Congratulations!! I'd imagine your heart is just full of all the good thoughts and prayers coming your way. I remember feeling that way many times myself, but, of course, on a slightly smaller scale.

hemidemisemiquaver said...

Ha Ha!! That ROCKS!! Anne that was so cool of you to take a pic!!

Candy said...

WOW! I just looked at it and you've already hit 3,030,000-some hits. 30,000 hits in one day. You are reaching so many people and it's all in God's plan to send your story far and wide.

JoythruHisGrace said...

Praising Him for how you have allowed God to use your lives to bless and educate so many.

Sara said...

Good job Anne!

mom2izzyandallen said...

Anne, you are so smart! I wish I could think of this stuff.

Anne, you are so smart! I wish I could think of this stuff.

Emily said...

That is cool! So is this- I teach remedial reading, and shared your blog address with my students as an option to do some reading during their computer lab time. I was amazed how many of them were glued to the screen! So how's that for you- improving the reading skills of rural North Carolinians, nice.

Twinkletoes said...

Holy cow - beyond cool! So glad that you are back! So glad to hear your girls are on their roads to heading home soon!!! Keep up the great work!
