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

There's no place like home. . .

I sure wish I could just click my heals and be transported back home in Idaho. . . if only it was that simple (and cheap). I have been experiencing a pretty big void in my life and I have figured out what it could possibly be. I miss all the things that I have back home. I have not been home for about 6 months~ I know, kinda a long time. I miss simple things that bring me so much happiness. I miss my friends.

I miss spending time with my Sister, and my Mom. I miss riding my horses. I miss spending time with my niece Myriam. I miss my grandparents terribly, already. I miss staying up late and laughing and giggling with 2 of my bestest friends from my childhood. I miss having all our friends together for a girls night out party where we talk, paint toenails, watch chic flicks and eat junk food all night. I miss the encouragement and love I get from everyone at home. I miss my in-laws. I miss Rupe's Burgers and Hong Kong's food. I miss Homestead fries! (just mentioning them is making me hungry). I miss knowing my way around without the assistance of the GPS. I miss talking to someone other than Bella all day long. I miss my Dad. I miss seeing my cat Dafney. I miss getting my arms and back tickled/scratched for hours.

As you can see I am quite home sick. But one of the greatest things about going home to Idaho for a visit is coming back home to Phoenix with my 'life battery' re-charged. I also like that Bryan misses me while I am gone. . .and sometimes it's just nice to missed!

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
