I went RIDING!!!

I finally got to go riding! It was a freezing cold day (no joke) windy and crappy...but thanks to an indoor arena only a few miles from my parent's house, I was able to go riding! I rode my horse, (technically my mom's horse now), Princess~ and had such a good time. I am a little saddle sore, but not too bad. My mom is pretty amazing~ she caught the horses, loaded them in the trailer, saddled them, and after wards put them away without much help from me due to the weather and wind. She didn't want me to take the chance of getting sick! I will try to get some pictures posted in a few days...I will have to get them from my aunt who was there with us. She was the only one that remembered her camera. Hopefully next week after I get a little "un -sore" I will ride again!! It is so wonderful to be able to enjoy my horses again. I can ride with out getting short of breath, wheezing, or hurting everywhere afterwards!! It's a miracle.....and I am so grateful to everyone that helped make it possible~ EVERYONE!

I just want to mention.....The horse I ride is my Make a Wish Pony/Arabian from when I was only 11 years old. My Make a Wish has brought so much joy to my life and made my childhood and adulthood something really special... If you want a really, really great charity to donate money to, Make a Wish is an Amazing and wonderful program! You will truly make a big impact on a sick child's life~ Just wanted to let you know how many great charities and programs there are out there.

I am so totally jealous!!!!! I miss riding so much it hurts! I think that is what I look forward to the most post-tx........

That's so awesome you received a horse for make a wish. And that you still ride her!

At least now hurting all over is a satisfaction from riding and has nothing to do with CF =D

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
