Do You Read Nie Nie?

I haven't started reading Nie Nie. For some reason, I just haven't. I really don't know why. Maybe because I am a total softy and reading that might just make me too sad? Who knows. I do, however, know the story of what happened to Nie Nie and Mr. Nielsen. And I was inspired when I heard that they climbed up to the Y in Provo. I haven't even done that. But, when I stumbled upon this video yesterday, via Mormon Mommy Blogs, I felt so blessed. What an amazing man and woman, to come out of a trial like that and to be grateful for all they have. I suddenly realized how often I complain about my stomach or thighs getting a little flabby or my hair not working with me, or some other silly, petty complaint. What on earth do I have to complain about? Absolutely NOTHING when compared to Stephanie Nielsen. She is an inspiration to us all. And I think I might just start reading Nie Nie.

I read her occasionally. I actually saw her at the mall a few weeks ago and she is still beautiful!

I got chills watching the video. Its amazing the outlook that she has on family and life in general! I totally agree with you that we have nothing to complain about. She is truly inspiring!

Really random... do you still have a Rebel T1i? Chases mom bought me a camera case for mothers day and it came with a battery for the T1i model, and we have the T2i. So if you could use another battery then let me know since I have no use for it! Call me when you come into town next and i'll give it too you!
