4:30 am is way to late to stay up!

Last night I was having so much fun spending time with my friend Jennifer that we lost track of the time and didn't even make it to bed until about 4:30 am! We were preoccupied with making hand made jewelry. She makes necklaces and bracelets and what not, so she brought her stuff over for us to play with. We made several necklace charms that represented my causes :) We used Purple beads which represent CF awareness, green which represents Organ Donation/Transplant awareness and the one for me also has a metal "rose" charm for "sixty five roses" (Cystic Fibrosis) that's one way to help kids pronounce their disease :) It is amazing how time flies when your having fun~I am only here in Idaho for about 6 more days. . . .I have mixed emotions about that. I miss Bryan so, so, so, so, so, so, so, much and I am really getting excited to get back to warm weather and improve my Improv skills :) However, I know I only have a limited amount of day left to ride my horses, spend time with the rest of my family and. . . well that's all I do here in Idaho. Being able to be away from home living in Phoenix has given me opportunities that I never dreamed I would have. It has also made me learn to appreciate my small home town even more. I miss the quiet streets and open fields and farms, but above all I cherish the time more that I am with my family. I miss seeing my nieces and nephew grow up and recieve so much joy from seeing thier childlike inocence, I wish I could somehow capture it and keep it forever. I have MJ trained so well that when I ask her "who is your favorite?" she answers with NO hesitation "Jamie" that is a moment of true happiness for me!

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
