But my gratitude seems kind of trivial compared to that of others. For anyone familiar with the story of Christian and Stephanie Nielsen – an Arizona couple seriously injured in a plane crash last summer – go here to see a moving video of gratitude from Stephanie’s husband. It will make you weepy. (And it’s set to one of my favorite pieces of music ever.)
And for those who haven’t heard of them go here for a background. Or to her sister’s blog for updates. I have to admit that I didn’t know about the Nielsens until after their crash, but have since grown to really admire them and their faith and love for each other and for the Lord.
I am always especially motivated by Stephanie’s love of and capacity to find joy in the role of every-day motherhood. She captures it so beautifully.
