NIE NIE DAY


Today is Nie Nie Day.
If you don't know about this,
kindly be directed here or here.
*****
Reading blogs are like my morning paper.
I can fill up on beautiful pictures,
funny or inspiring stories,
tips on motherhood, crafting, recipes,
and even current events.
Stephanie Nielson's blog has been a favorite
of mine, and it has been quite miraculous the way
people have pulled together and shown their love
for this sweet family.
*****
In the recent past weeks, tragedy or heartache
has also been looming in the lives of
several of our family members and friends.
When it rains, it pours.
Today I will pray for Stephanie and Christian,
and I will pray for our loved ones who need
some extra angels on their journey...
don't we all:)
*****
In honor of Nie Nie Day,
let's be thoughtful of family, friends,
or friends to be, and remember
how precious this life is.

That's totally cool. I agree with the morning paper bit.
Can't wait to see you. Let Addie know I am going to bring my sheers with me so I can cut her hair or whatever. We probably should trim yours up too. Do you want to refresh your color? Just let me know and I will bring the stuff. Love ya.

That's totally random that I've stumbled upon her and her families trials on just about every crafty website I know. It really makes you think about life in an eternal perspective. Crazy that it happened in Mesa and I live like 10minutes away now. Anyways, I'm glad you posted about her!

I hope they are able to recover from this accident.

Sara, Thanks for posting. Nie is so beautiful. Her family is so beautiful. I just spent the last hour reading about her life and I have to say I've just about emptied the kleenex box. My eyes are going to be swollen tomorrow at church. I just cant imagine what it would be like to have to go through something like that. I so happy we have the church and the gospel in our lives. We are so blessed.
