Yet Another Jay and Deb Production.
So I thought I would start the Tuesday Tribute that Jay and Deb are intiating this week....what a great idea!
This weekend I was completely enthralled in the story of Stephanie Nielson. I had never heard of her blog or her story until the other night while blog surfing, and I was completely saddened by the tragedy that befolded her family. I have to say it just really saddened me that such a great wonderful mother has suffered such a huge tragedy, and I pray that she finds strength as her struggles continue.
Stephanie and her husband, Christian, were in a private plane crash in August of 2008. Both survived, which was truly a miracle but with severe burns. Stephanie body was burned more than 80% and Christian over 30%. The flight instructor on board was not so lucky and died from his injuries.
Please remember all of them in your thoughts and prayers, and check out Stephanie's love letter to her family...her blog. It is an amazing blog and I spent all day reading about her life. What an inspiring blog!
Oh, and I should also mention that not only did she and her husband survive a plane crash...they have four children, which is an inspiration in survival at its best!
You can check out updates about Stephanie and Christian via her sister Courtney's blog, you can also check out the website, http://web.me.com/andrewtbagley/NieRecovery/Home.html which is a collection of news about the Nielson family. You can also donate money to their recovery fund if you feel so inclined, I am sure every little bit helps.
Stephanie Nielson, I don't know you personally, but you have truly touched me, and I wish you and your family the best in the New Year as your healing continues.
