Do you know Nie Nie?

Posted on: September 10, 2008

Have you heard about the Nielson’s (Christian and Stephanie Nielson? It’s really an amazing and touching story of love, family, and the kindess of www/strangers. Their story was recently featured on the Today Show (see it here) but can also be regularly chronicled on 3 blogs:

C Jane Run – Nie Nie’s Sister, Courtney’s updates
Nie Nie’s Dialogues – (Where it all started – currently running favorite articles from her archives)
Nie Recovery – A great place to see how the worldwide web has come together to help this family.

I just can’t seem to get them out of my mind… my prayers are with them and their kids and I’m trying to come up with a way that I can help.  At the very least I hope you’ll use these links to get to know and care about them, too.

From C Jane Run:

Send cards to decorate our patient’s room!

(No flowers please!)
(Though Nie would love them . . .)

I found 2 more quote gems to share:

“Wonders never cease, if you never cease to wonder.”  ~ Ziggy

(pretty wise little cartoon dude, huh?)


“I wish I had treasured ‘the doing’ a little more and ‘the getting it done’ a little less”  ~ Anna Quindlen

Good one for us moms (yes, me) that rush through the day just trying to get it all done, enjoying little of it, and never getting it ALL done anyway! 

Can I hear an, “Amen!”.


Lunch box Joke: 

Why didn’t the dog want to play football?

(insert Jeopardy music here… Do, do, Do, do, Do, do, Dooooooo, *DUNT*, d-dunt, dunt, dunt, dunt, DUUNT)

Because he was a boxer!  (I can see you smiling)


Now get out there and improve the day of someone else ~ BONUS ~ it’ll improve your day, too!

They say that muscle is heavier "by volume" than fat is, which means 5 lbs. of muscle takes up less space than 5 lbs. of fat within a body. I'm a believer. This totally explains how your clothes begin to fit better even though the numbers on the scale aren' t moving very fast.

This is GROSS. I know. But I'd rather see the fat HERE than on my body...

Each time we “resist” an urge to fall off plan or not exercise we strengthen our “resistance muscle” and each time we “give in” to temptation we strengthen our “give in muscle” making it easier to either "resist" or "give in" next time.
