I have never actually met NieNie, but she happens to be the sister of my good friend Chris. I found her blog through her siblings, and I was immediately impressed by the joy and radiance that exuberated from her posts. Having four children myself, I felt a connection to her as a mother and I was also drawn to her love of beauty. I know she has been a wonderful example of a faithful and devoted mother and wife to many women out there, and more than one friend of mine has admitted to me that NieNie is the reason they started blogging. Since that fateful day in August, I have followed her story through her family members, and I have been overwhelmed by her ability to endure. Hearing about her journey has reinforced my own testimony. Of miracles. Of family. Of a Father in Heaven who blesses us with more good things than we could possibly receive. I am grateful to her for her courage and for allowing the world to be uplifted by her beautiful spirit. I hope that many more women will continue to be inspired by her story. Thank you, NieNie, for never giving up!
