Link Request: Father Week, Day Two

My name is Leslie Poe from Memphis, Tennessee ( I did not start following Nie's blog or yours until after I saw you and your sweet siblings on the Today show. I promptly found her blog, spent two days reading its entirety, and immediately became attached. Nie challenges me to be a better wife and she has me taking notes on the kind of mother I want to be someday. One of the favorite characteristics I have gleaned from her way of life is her willingness to throw schedule and order out the window on occasion in order to make way for fun and memories. In one post, she described Mr. Nielson's love for music and included a picture of the entire family dancing in the living room. What a wonderful representation of that family's love for fun and their intentionality in living each moment. That post is my special request!
Thank you for taking the time to continue writing in the midst of such a stressful time in your life. I know I am learning from you as you do, and I can only imagine the hundreds of others who would agree with me. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours daily.
God Bless,
Leslie Poe

As this beautiful post (Father Week, Day Two) has been re-posted, we'll include a link with Leslie's sweet tribute. You can see the Nie's getting their dance on here.
