Talking with my hands

I was sitting here on my computer pondering what I could possibly think to write about that I haven't already blabbed on and on an on about all ready. It's quite amazing how many things our brain can think of at one time. No sooner had I thought that thought, my brain found inspiration. Random, but I think I will take it :)

I talk a lot about my transplant, and my life after transplant, and my goals, dreams and aspirations. . . blah, blah, blah. So upfront I am apologizing for another post of similar content.

I can't even really recall how many years exactly I have been facinated by this. . . . but I still am to this day and I think I should finally learn it. Now maybe I have your attention?? You might be thinking "oooh, I wonder what fabulous thing it is?" or you could be saying "Psshh, I don't care enough to read on". . . . . your choice.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Congratulations for choosing to listen to me :) So. . .thank you! Okay, I have always been facinated with sign language. I stare when I see people sign out of pure interest! It's captivating! I went to my cousins ASU graduation and I wasn't even bored out my head cuz the entire thing was translated in sign by a woman who had awesome hair (just a side note) :) Well needless to say I want to learn. I know the alphabet and a few basic words, but just enough to make me want more!

It's hard after a transplant to find a purpose in a sense. I mean, like for example: I don't work, I am not in school, I don't have kids to raise, I sit at home a lot on my computer, I don't feel like I am "doing" much with my life. Don't get me wrong, I know my life has a purpose and I am loved and all that jazz. But really? I think I am happy when I am learning. So purhaps now would be a good time to learn. I could take it farther and say "I want to finish learning all the random things I have once started." But I don't have a drum set anymore, or a piano, or the banjo . . . .well those are just the other 3 things I started learning and never mastered. I will keep you posted on my journey to learn to talk with my hands and have it actually mean something :)

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
