I have been more than touched my Nie Nie's story. http://nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/ The first time I contacted Nie Nie it was via e-mail. She makes beautiful silhouettes. She had posted on her blog that she was going to be making them for customers! I was thrilled with this news. I asked her if she could make them of my children. She did just that! They turned out beautiful, and hang in my front room. About 4 months later, I was able to take a class from her. She then taught me to make silhouettes. I have more fun creating them. I remember leaving the class, that Saturday afternoon. She walked me to the door, as I was to leave. She said to me...We will keep in touch. I can't tell you how many times I have visualized this memory.
The concert was wonderful! The feeling that filled the auditorium Saturday evening was so special. Steve, Sarah, her friend, Kellsie, and I, all went together. Steve is such a trooper! He loved every minute of that concert. He too is following Nie Nie's story. I have learned much from this sweet friend. I have learned from her tragedy. For a while that bothered me. I didn't want a tragedy, of such a special person, to be a lesson to me. Now I look at it in a way, that has evolved. Heavenly Father has his hands in everything. I know if I stay close to him always, he will continue to send me people, and messages that I need in my life.
This morning when I read this http://blog.cjanerun.com/ I got tears in my eyes, and sighed a sigh of relief. I also thanked my Heavenly Father for having his hands in all things.
