Yesterday my mom and I were talking about how amazing the blogging community is. There are some days when I find myself in the depths of NieNie or CJane with tears streaming down my face. Sometimes I'm laughing so hard I'm crying. Women, complete strangers who have no idea who I am or what separates me from Vintage Indie. I'm just a writer in Kentucky who has a blog and likes to support others with my words. These two ladies who also happen to be sisters are gifts, just like so many of you are. Your personal stories, your thoughtful comments they touch lives and speak to people who you will never meet. Have you ever thought about that?
Yesterday, Stephanie Nielson of NieNie was on the Oprah show. I've been a follower of NieNie even before her accident and fell in love with her writing. I loved her warmth and the love she has for life, her family and her husband it is wholesome and endearing. Sometimes I say to myself, I want to grow up to be like Stephanie and Courtney for that matter. After the plain crash that killed one of their friends and injured her and her husband with severe burns, she's inspiring me more than she could have ever imagined before.
I hope you'll watch the clip if you missed the show yester, and be inspired by Stephanie as much as I have. What an amazing woman.
