NieNie Dialogues

I was watching Oprah one day and came across an episode that featured a guest named Stephanie Nielson. I've never been so inspired and have felt so blessed after watching this show and listening to her story.

In August of 2008 Stephanie and her husband (Christian) were in a plane crash. The plane exploded on impact and caused burns on Christian's neck while Stephanie suffered burns on 80 percent of her body. I can't even imagine how she managed to keep her spirits up to want to survive. Luckily she had a huge support system in her family and was able to see the light at the end of this long and challenging tunnel.

Anyways, the point of my post is because I started reading her blog and every entry I read makes me fall in love with her positive and uplifting attitude. She is still not fully healed from the accident but she still manages to keep things in perspective. I love reading about her random stories about her kids and her awesome husband. It truly is an amazing blog and I think you should check it out.

I complain about so much and I have to catch myself sometimes and really think about how lucky I am. I pray that nothing like what happened to Stephanie happens to me, but if it did, I would hope that I have the same attitude as Stephanie to make it through. Giving up is not an option.

So anyways, check out her blog if you get the chance. You'll be hooked I'm telling you.
