I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears, behold I will heal thee.

Repeat after me. . . .

Ever feel like you're just kinda stuck? I am stuck. I am happy, and I keep busy. . .but I am stuck. I sleep in every morning cuz frankly, I don't have a reason to get up early. Nothing pressing, nothing too important to do. Routines are comfortable, safe. . . but they get old after a while. I am stuck in a daily routine. Ahhhhhh!! I need to figure out how to spice up my days. However I do not want anything medical suprising me~ I will take repititious over sick any day :)

I seriously can't wait till November when Bryan will be done with school and I wont be alone 12 hours or more each day!! That will be nice~ But for now I just need to figure out what I can do to keep from going insane. Well I don't want to sound like I am in a downer mood, because I am not, I am just contemplating what I do with my time. . . .how can I use it better. . . .and what do I do that makes me happy?? I am not sure if I will ever figure out all three. Let me end with this quote I really, really like and 100% agree with:

"People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project. Always have something ahead of you to "look forward to"-to work for and hope for" -Maxwell Maltz.

You should volunteer somewhere J! You are so inspiring and there are probably tons of people out there who could benefit from you!

I have to agree ..... I sat at home for the first year kind of "waiting for the other shoe to drop". I was healthy, strength was back so I went to volunteer one day a week. Plus trying to talk to people every day about the benefits of organ donations. All of this gives me some purpose. I also try to help other on TxBuddies. I'm also looking very hard at volunteering with my OPO. Just a few thoughts from the peanut gallery of life.

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
