Just finished reading Heaven is Here by Stephanie Neilson.
LOVED IT! The woven theme of motherhood is truly inspiring. I felt like her life and my life have been an inch apart and yet miles apart as well.
I was in AZ miles away from her plane crash when it happened. In fact, it crashed in the backyard of a friend's relative.
I had just begun blogging and heard from a blogging friend about the little family who needed help the day after it happened. I would read the updates on her from her family and saw the countless paypal and charity options in our area to help.
Reading her thoughts, I related to her love of Elder Holland, Cafe Rio and motherhood as the ultimate joy. She spoke my language.
I still follow her blog at www.nieniedialogues.com to see what her family is up to.
I admire her honesty and courage. Read it!
