HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!


I am officially 30 years old...today actually. My little sister threw a GREAT party for me on Friday night before I left to come back to Phoenix. It was really fun! It meant so much to me to have so many people I love come to my party to support me! My friend Jennifer Gough spent a lot of time with me and came to my party- we had a good time. I had many people come that I have not seen in over 6 months. Everyone made me feel so loved and special. Thank You Everyone! My Edward cutout was a success also - he got his picture with most of the guests (female anyway). I didn't get a lot of pictures because I was busy talking....surprised? But I will post a couple of them.

We drove all day Saturday and Sunday & I am back in Bryan's arms in WARM, SUNNY Phoenix! It is really nice to see the sun again and get my daily overdose of vitamin D. He of course is gone to work, but is planning on taking me out to "Macaroni Grill" when he gets home. But he will have to leave again tonight for school...so I will put all my new scrapbook stuff I got for my B-Day to good use!

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
