Happy Pre-Valentine's Day!!

I am really glad that valentine's day falls on a Saturday....it would have really sucked to have to spend it all day and night by myself! If you haven't noticed I have posted a few videos...one is a recap of my transplant and my year after. You will need to pause my music player before playing the video though!

Ok so Nikkii laughed at my new song that I added...Garth Brooks...EVERYONE knows that I don't listen or like much country music. But this song has a very special place in my heart. It is the song that was played at a good friend's funeral...he died from CF about 6 years ago. Listen to the words- it's a really great message. And the song titled "angels in waiting" is a song written and performed by a woman who lost 2 brothers to Cystic Fibrosis and the song is to carry on thier memory! So that's why there is some country music on my playlist....

If you are wondering what I do all day, I spend a lot of time with Bella...although this is what she does all day.....

My Testimony

It's hard to put into words how I feel toward my Heavenly Father and the Savior. I have so many reasons to be thankful for what I have gone through & endured. Because of my trials in life I have gained a strong testimony of Faith. I have always had Faith in the Lord and in Prayer. As I faced the decision to get a double lung transplant I had to rely on faith to make the choice.....By listening to the spirit, I was guided to Pittsburgh where my life was saved. I believe prayers are answered. I have always tried to follow the philosophy of this: If I do what the Lord expects of me, he will give me what I want & need. That has always worked for me. I Believe in MIRACLES..........My life on this earth is a miracle- I prayed on my knees for years to be healed from my lung disease. I knew that through a priesthood blessing (if it was God's will) I could be healed. So many times I thought he would heal me instantly...my faith was tested as I continued to get sick and no cure was in my future. I turned to prayer....I talked to my Heavenly Father, I cried to him and he heard me and he healed me by guiding me to Pittsburgh and guiding the surgeons hands. I learned humility, and thankfulness. I realized that we need others to lean on and we are supposed to strengthen each others testimonies. I learned that the hardest things we'll do are usually the greatest blessings in our life. I was able to experience a lot of things during surgery and I know I had comforting angels in my ICU room. THe Lord knows each of us by name and he will never leave our side. We need to remember to stay close to him and have Faith that he is watching over us. I know this for a fact! I know that following the gospel will bring us true happiness- the world will tell us otherwise, but I know I am truely happy & living the gospel has brought me that. Amen
