Nie Nie's story

If you have a moment (right now would be perfect) grab a BIG cup of coffee or whatever your feel-good drink is, get comfortable, and read Jamiee Rose's feature of Stephanie Nielson of the NieNie Dialogues. I don't care if you saw her on Oprah. This is a million times better.

You will need tissues. And you will need to read Part 1 and Part 2, every chapter:

Part 1
Chapter 1: The crash
Chapter 2: Surgeries and prayers
Chapter 3: She wakes
Chapter 4: In the mirror

Part 2
Chapter 5: The children visit
Chapter 6: Coming home
Chapter 7: A familiar voice
Chapter 8: A new promise
Chapter 9: Heavenly fire
Chapter 10: Perspective and peace

One last thing:
Do you do something special with your child that is unique to just you two? If you have several children, do you do something that is special for each one? Even if it's a different way to say I love you or give smooches on a nose or an ear that sets each child apart... do you do something that is "your thing" that they will always remember and know you by? I'm thinking about the importance of this today.
