First time riding Pixydust


Today was well. . . not AS cold, so we decided to take the horses over to the outdoor arena! Pixydust has not been ridden for about a month now since she was picked up from the trainer. I was a little nervous around her as well as getting on her and loping around. A few years ago I wouldn't have needed to be so cautious but with the new lungs and all. . . My mother was great as always and rode her for me to warm her up for about 10 minutes. It eased my worries to watch her ride. My saddle also had some work done to make it more comfortable and it made such a difference!

I rode Pixydust for about an hour or so and it was so much fun! It is a pretty good work out due to her being so young and she is not neck reined therefore I had to litterally pull her around and kick her ALOT to get her to lope. My arms and legs are going to be really sore, and I will probably feel like I got hit by a truck when I wake up, but it was an amazing moment that I looked forward to since my transplant. I couldn't ask for a better behaved and willing horse~ I am truly blessed by the Lord.

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
