Nie's Recovery

today is a special day. i know that my viewership is small - but it would be wrong for me not to share this story with you all:

Last week Christian and Stephanie Nielson were in a very serious plane crash. They are a young couple with four children under the age of six. They are in critical condition. Stephanie has third degree burns covering 80% of her body and Christian has third degree burns over 30% of his body. The recovery will be very long and very expensive.

If you are able, please consider contributing to this fund that will go directly to the family.

Today, several websites are auctioning off items for their benefit. Go here to see the comprehensive list: .

Updates about Stephanie and Christian here:


I thought seriously about holding an auction for one of my original paintings. But, the anxiety won out, and I decided that instead I would be sure to spend some money on some of the wonderful auctions. In fact I saw that a sister in my ward is auctioning off a photo session!!! Such a small blogging world.

It is so fabulously heart warming to see all support that has turned out for this family. I hope that if you see something you like, you will buy :o) and know the money is going to a very deserving cause.
