How we can learn from others

Today, if you catch yourself wallowing in the Monday blues, or feeling kinda down over your daily nonsense, take 10 minutes and read this series of articles about Stephanie Nielson.

Part I, After fiery plane crash, a sister is held even closer
Part II, Husband, sisters welcome Stephanie back

What a gift this life is. What a gift are our families. What a gift is freedom, and health, and strength, and love, and forgiveness.

I am so grateful to Stephanie and Christian's families, who have shared so much of themselves during this ordeal. I have learned so much from watching them have grace and dignity and love and humor, and showing us how it's done.

I am so happy for them that so many blessing are being poured upon them.

I love them, even though I've never met them. I wish them all the joy in the world.
