I am one of the many people who has never met Stephanie in person but became deeply affected by her beautiful life. It was actually on a day that I was feeling pretty sorry for myself that I read about her accident. After perusing her blog and realizing what an amazing person she is, I immediately made some changes in my attitude about being a mother. It's still very hard for me sometimes to watch Rick go off on his great medical school adventure, while I feel stuck here at home with an endless to-do list of monotonous chores. But Stephanie's example gives me the hope that I can love what I am doing.
So, happy Nie Nie Day! You can read about it here.
P.S. Rick did well on his test! 89; exactly the class average. Woo hoo!!
