I'm Baaaaack

Today I had to say my goodbyes to my family and friends. It was hard to hold back the tears. It's a little easier knowing I was leaving and would be going to be back with Bryan!! My flight was nice. My mother in law who is really a very special person in my life offered to drive me to SLC to the airport and even bought me lunch at the 'Training Table'. Idaho is such a beautiful place to be this time of year, it was hard to leave. I made sure to give loves and kisses my horse Pixydust before I left. I am so happy when I am riding her.

Bryan picked me up at the airport and what a great sight! My heart still skips a beat when I see him. I came home to a very clean apartment & Bella just about came unglued when she saw me walk in the door. I am hoping to rest up good from my crazy busy vacation. I am hoping to return to Idaho again in September to do some more riding and catch the Eastern Idaho State Fair! We'll see, I am not promising anything :)

One thing I do find interesting is my micro-spirometer numbers always go down about 5% when I am in Idaho. . .but as soon as I get back to Phoenix they jump right back up! I think my lungs really like the lower altitude and warm weather (a little too warm right now though).

Back to Jester'z tomorrow night for 2 shows & also gotta get back into a workout regimen. :) Tomorrow I will probably escape the heat at the swimming pool!

Night everyone!!!

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
