4th weekend fun.....

Being home in Idaho for the holiday was such a good thing for us. Number one...Bryan really needed the break from his stress from Phoenix and from me being sick. He had a blast at the lake! I however tried to stay out of the sun because I had a painful rash on both of my arms (probably from all the antibiotics) But it is much better now. We rode jet skis that Bryan's brother rented and went out on the boat.

Bella really enjoyed the water. . . . she is our little 15 pound Labrador :) She was running through the water with her tail strait and hopping like a bunny rabbit. She was cute when she submerged her face completely to fetch a stick. It's funny because everyone else was taking a bunch of pictures of their kids playing in the water and sand. . .and I was snapping like 100 pictures of Bella~ they probably thought I crazy. Oh and Bella even took a ride in the boat, but didn't want to ride the tube :)

I have been riding Princess a lot and finally I don't get so sore I cant walk for week. I am getting some nice muscle definition in my back and legs because I ride bareback (no saddle). Also my Pixydust was taken to the trainer~ I should be able to ride her next time I come back to Idaho. The trainer workds with her for 30 days. Woohoo!

I have been working a lot on a very special scrapbook. I have completed about 6 or so pages. . .I still need to finish about 6 or so more pages :) So needless to say I have been keeping myself pretty busy~ and spending a lot of time with my sister Nikkii.

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
