(Nie Nie on Oprah. She is an inspiration.)
I've been reading Nie Nie's blog for some time now and, I have to say, sometimes her blog bugs me (I'm a jerk, I know)... and then I check myself and realize just what she has been through. For those of you that don't read her blog... she and her husband were in a plane crash and both survived (the pilot died). Nie Nie was burned over 80% of her body and spent more than 8 months in the ICU with little chance of recovery. But she is alive and she is thriving. Seeing this video of her skiing is inspirational to me. I sometimes forget just how lucky I am to have all that I have... my health, my mind, my husband, my family, my job. Seeing someone who almost had all of that taken away is eye-opening and puts things back in perspective. Thanks Nie Nie for such a wonderful post.
