Nie Nie Dialogues

The Nielson Family
(This image was borrowed from the Nie Nie Dialogues)

For the past several weeks I have been closely following the blog: Nie Nie Dialogues. The author of this blog, Stephanie Nielson, and her husband, Christian were critically injured in a plane crash in August. (For detailed information regarding their story go here. The article is lengthy, but worth the read. Warning: kleenex is a must.) I can't quite pinpoint why I am so eager to read updates regarding this precious family. Maybe it is because the Neilsons are parents of four young children, and my heart aches for these babies. While reading the Nie Nie Dialogues, I have learned that Stephanie Nielson loves her husband and children with a great passion. I have been touched and inspired by her posts in regards to her family. It's worth spending a few minutes reading this blog for inspiration. It certainly has inspired me to strive to be the best wife and mother that I could possibly be. Thank you, Nie Nie.

For updates on the Nielson's recovery, etc. you can go here: C Jane Enjoy It. Courtney Kendrik is the sister of Stephanie Nielson, and is a gifted writer. Her posts are just as refreshing as Nie Nie's. This blog is a definite must-read.

Between Nie Nie Dialogues, C Jane Enjoy it and all the other bloggers attached to them, I have come across quite a few interesting and enjoyable blogs. It's amazing how large the blogging community really is. Almost EVERY night I am up reading these blogs, when I probably should be posting, sleeping or cleaning while the boys are sleeping, etc. etc. etc. The Hubbs has dubbed me the blog queen. I thought posting about my blog addiction would be a great way to sign off for the night. So, sweet dreams to you.

As for the Nielson family, God bless you. You are in my prayers.

My Fellow Blog Stalker, :-)
I have loved reading Nie Nie's and C Jane's blogs as well. The story is so sad. Nie Nie and Mr. Neilsen's children are adorable, and I love the daily updates by C Jane.

Hi, Monica. I've been lurking here for a while. Sam probably told you (I commented on his photo blog because he's soooo good! You're lucky to have such a great photographer in the family).

I was planning on doing a post about Stephanie and Christian on my blog, too. I got a headache from trying to read her entire blog the day I discovered it. It is so sad to see what their family is going through.

Love your blog!

Leah - I can't tell you how many times I have checked for updates on Stephanie's condition! We sure have it bad: We're talking like we know them personally. LOL It almost sure feels like we know them, huh?

Michelle - I am so thrilled you came out of the woodwork to leave a comment! It's so good to hear from you! Thank you for your compliments of Sam's photography. God has sure blessed him with talent. As for the Neilson's, I cannot imagine what their entire family is going through. When I think of their babies, I just feel so sad to think they are wondering where in the world is their mommy. Isn't it amazing how their story has touched so many of us?
