Nie Nie on Oprah today and a WINNER!

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Nie Nie is a real life inspiration. She is a woman I have admired for a long time. Last year, she and her husband were in a devastating plane crash. Watching the way their families and the blogging community rallied around them was truly a miracle. Her painful journey back to ordinary life with her four children has been a blessing to watch. So, try to catch Oprah today or DVR it! Nie Nie has fans all around the world but this appearance has not been hugely publicized and I know I would have been so sad if I missed it.

And big THANKS to all of you who are helping to bring Isabella home (See post below). You are wonderful! Congratulations to Trena for winning the bracelet. Let me know what size and which pattern and I will have it sent to you. I used to pick a number:)

Here are your random numbers:

    I am going to take one to school today with a little hand towel in in for a teacher in appreciation.
    I chose the one to take called " I love Lucy" for we love teachers too! I thought that so approiate!

    One for Kate would be beautiful with her outfit!!
    I think I will give mine away but one and then I have one I think I will keep for me and give the other to away for appreciation gifts!

  19. I love your recent posts. You are so amazing to share such personal stories with us. Thank you! I finally figured out how to go private and will be back blogging this weekend. This week was my Makenna's 10th birthday and my Brady's first reconciliation so busy busy. Miss you! T

  20. OM Goodness....I'm just spending a lazy evening blog hopping and was sucked into her blog for the last 20 minutes! What an amazing person she is! Thanks for sharing her blog.

    (Although I'm feeling a little sheepish as I've been wallowing in my "poor me" attitude today....even, knowing how incredibly blessed we are. Thanks for unknowingly giving me the kick in the pants I so needed!)


Thank you for your kindness.
