Where Are You From?


I was visiting over at Mommy Life (and loving my visit!) and discovered this and it looked fun. If you go here you'll find a Frapper - a special map that shows where my readers are coming from. When I check my statistics, I can see there are some on every continent.

You just add your zip code and a simple comment in "Shout It Out" and you get mapped - you can do a picture too if you want (that really would be lovely). Please don't be shy!

Barbara goes on to relate a story about how insecure she is. I'm not going to relate a story (I'm too insecure to do that) but I will tell you that I am definitely insecure!!!! Did I mention that I. AM. INSECURE? So, if you don't want to be guilty of sending me into a deep psychologically depressed state, PLEASE fill it in!

Maybe this would be the perfect time to tell each of you how special you are to me! When you take the time to comment it allows me to 'know' you a little better every time. It's like a giant quilt spread out across the world made up of different hues...some of you are serious, some of you are extremely funny, some of you are very wise, and ALL of you are much loved! You bring a brightness to my day as you drop in for a visit or I pop over to your place. So to each one of you who have taken the time to make yourself known, thank you!!! I think blogging is wonderful because if I was to walk into a crowded room, filled with all of you, I would miss out on the richness of getting to know you because I am very shy. Now that we ARE friends I wish we could meet face to face and share a meal or two together. What a rich experience that would/will be!!! May God richly bless your day!!

Shy? My Claire Bug is shy? I wouldn't have thunk it.

Gayla said...

BTW, you need to put that Frapper thing on your sidebar, so people can access it when this current post is way at the bottom of the page. Think I'll do it too. :)

Pilot Mom said...

Well, Gayla, I am! Not so much once people get to know me. You have no idea how long I've read blogs before I ever posted the first time! Ha!

Pilot Mom said...

umm...how do I do that?

Gayla said...

I don't know, but we need to research it. I'm sure there's a way, b/c I've seen similar things on other blogs.

Clair is shy? Shy and insecure? Our Claire? Are you kidding me?

So all this giving of great advice and guidance and insight into God...this is all going to waste on people that don't know you? Are you kidding me?

Oh Claire! That you're not spreading this wealth of God knowledge every where you go is unbelievable to me! How can you hold back? You're SO outgoing on blogs!

Well call me done and turn me over.

Pilot Mom said...

Yes, Jules, as a matter of fact, I am. Now, when God leads I do obey...but the blogging is so much less threatening, so I have become much braver! :)

Actually I clicked the link to Frapper before I read far enough in your post to know what a "shoutout" was. Then I found out...too late.

Pilot Mom said...

Hey, Wendy...do you have a blog? Let me know so I can pop in and visit. I would love to get to know you. :)

Becky said...

Hi Claire..it's been a while since I've heard from you. Just wanted to pop by and say hello! And leave a hug...Becky

Pilot Mom said...

Becky, I'm so GLAD you did! Thanks for letting me know you dropped in!

Melissa said...

I'm thankful daily for wondering across your blog!...or you wondering across mine...which ever came first!

Pilot Mom said...

Melissa, I'm glad too! I pray your day is filled to overflowing with our Father's love! :)

As you well know, I went and got me a frapper thingie, too! I think it's very cool!

I was AMAZED at the detail of the maps, tho! Very detailed and precise if you zoom in a lot.

Thanks for letting us know about this thing. (now I guess I'll hafta post more than I did about it to get people to actually go put themselves on there!)

~hugs~

Pilot Mom said...

You are most welcome, Geannie! And, yes, I think you need to post a little more on it to alert people. Lol! Did you look on mine and see how close you and Melissa are? It's fun, isn't it?

Gina Burgess said...

Now I will probably have to frapper but where does the time go these days. I am convinced that the hours are shorter and the minutes are shy several seconds. It can't possibly be my time management! Oh, I know it's my slow dinosaur dial-up. That's it!
