Not a MOMENT to be wasted....

Most of you have probably heard about Stephanie & Christian Nielson, or have seen the link to them on my sidebar.

(click on it) is a link to an article that I read today. It is amazing and beautifully written.
I love this family!
LOVE. KiNdNeSs. perseverance. FAITH. HoPe. Service.

The bond of sisterhood reminds me that I have been blessed with 4 of my own, plus a few step and more in laws. WHAT A BLESSING! Am I doing enough to show them my love? Am I doing enough to lighten their burdens? No, but I will try harder! I don't want to waste a moment with them.

My children. Do they know how much I treasure THEM? Do they know what a BLESSING they are to me? I hope they do! I will try harder to be sure!

My Ryan. Do you know how grateful I am that you love me? And even more grateful that I KNOW it? Do you know how happy you make me? Do you know that I fear that FOREVER won't be long enough? Do you KNOW how grateful I am for the FATHER you are to our children? For the way you provide and work so hard for us? Oh I hope so! If not, I will remind you, A MILLION TIMES OVER!

Don't let a single MOMENT go by without making sure the ones you love KNOW IT!

Wow. I love that. I have never heard the details of the crash. What an amazing family. Thank heaven for sisters. I don't know what I would do without mine. I want to move back to Salt Lake now. I am ready to be closer to all of you and right by my family.

I just cried my eyes out. I started at the first line and I didn't stop until I was done. I may not be done yet. Isn't it amazing how by surviving we have learned more about hope, love, service, the eternal nature of our families and relationships than if they would have died. I guess there really is a plan, huh. Anyway, thanks for the link.
