Going Home?

I am seriously in need of some "home" time right now. I am enjoying all the things that Phoenix offers me. I am enjoying my Improv stuff. I am also enjoying the weather here! However, I am missing my family along with several of my bestest girlfriends. I am going into "friend" withdrawal. I need nights of giggling and staying up all night talking about all the things that make us girls! I need re-charged and hanging out with my friends and family always seems to do the trick.

I am also really missing my neice and nephews~ I talked to Myriam on the phone and couldn't believe how well she spoke and she sounded like a little girl and not a toddler :( However I was happy cuz she remembers who her favorite is! I am missing out on so much. I do like doses of home life mixed with the advantages and opportunties the bigger city offers. I am ready for a dose of my small town love!

I am hoping to make a short trip home to Idaho in April to celebrate my 31st birthday. . . I will see if I can make it happen.

Idaho feels like "going home" to me, too, since I spent every summer vacation of my childhood there with my parents' families. It's really a beautiful place. I avoid it in winter but love the summers. I don't think I could ever give up city living but I sure enjoy a little downtime in such a beautiful, calm place! Hope you get to go visit soon!

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
