Just Imagine

Feeling chatty?

Welcome to my blog! Pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and read what's on my mind. I've a vicious sense of humor, an apprecation for romance and a mad addiction to writing.

Stephanie Nielson. Plane crash victim. A story of survival. If we could all be like her.

Welcome. Every once in a while I have a day to myself here at A Writer’s Mind. I debated whether I should share this or not but in the end I thought, my readers NEED to know about this. So here’s the story…

Have you heard of STEPHANIE NIELSON, mother of four and PLANE CRASH SURVIVOR? I hadn’t heard of her until I watched Glenn Beck. Yep, I’m a fan. But moreover, who he talked about during one of his programs this past week REALLY touched me. Made all of my problems seem so very small… almost non-existent.

SHE became my hero. Who is she? Stephanie Nielson. A woman who has persevered through so much. A woman who got in a plane with her husband and should have died when the plane crashed. But she didn't. Instead, she was burned on over 80% of her body...

Christian and Stepanie Nielson. The romance. Before the accident…

Trouble viewing this? Click HERE.

The first two interviews with them after the accident are shown below and how she looks now. I watched all of the program. Was simply amazed at this woman’s endurance… how much she truly 'survived'. How peaceful and happy she looks. Could I do that? Could I be that strong? Sighs. I highly doubt it. Could you?

At this point they grow lumps on her back to use her own skin to replace what they can. After all, our bodies will only accept our own skin so they had to grow hers...on her. Now, can you even imagine what she’s gone through thus far?

Have a spare sec? Check out her blog Nie Nie Dialogues Blogspot. A good blog to keep an eye on. I've already bookmarked it.

I do hope a few of you head over and check out Stephanie's blog. Truth told, I'd like to think I can sit here and say I'd be half as courageous as her, as top-notch. But I don't know. She is one very amazing woman.

God bless, Stephanie.
