Happy Triggers

This post is just gonna be a few things that make me happy in life. I am sure I am just repeating myself over and over in some of my posts. . .but right now I am happy, so I am going to keep the train on that track!

Baby animals: I have a VERY soft spot in my heart for baby animals especially kittens. I would definitely classify myself as a 'Cat Person' but I find much happiness with dogs as well. I have never been able to resist rescuing, bottle feeding, holding, loving, cuddling a kitten. . .they are one of my favorite things!

Dance Music/Club Music:
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my dance rhythm music. I get a little frustrated at the lyrics in most songs, but give me a nice beat and something catchy and I can't help but move my body! Which leads right into DANCING: I enjoy dancing, just dancing to the radio/CD in my living room where no one watches me!

Starry nights: A clear, warm, beautiful starry night is really breathtaking. It is a reminder of how wonderful and beautiful the universe around us is. When I look up at the starry sky I am reminded of sleepovers on the trampoline, playing night games, and sitting around a campfire. Those memories make me happy!

Laughing: If there is one thing that can fill my entire being up with joy, it's laughing. It's not only healthy for us. . .but I don't believe I can be stressed, sad, discouraged at the same exact time when I am genuinely laughing. We can't always control 'life' so why not find the humor and laugh at it. Laughter gives me a few moments (sometimes more) away from the pain that life can cause.

Just one more. . . .

Knowing that GOD loves me: Having Faith, a testimony, the gospel of Jesus Christ and knowing why I am here and where I am going after this life is over brings me not only happiness but peace. How wonderful it is to understand that enduring in this life will bring us so much more in the next. I could go on and on about this, but I just know that my testimony and knowledge of my Heavenly Father's Eternal plan gives me a purpose in this life. . . and is the foundation of all my happiness.

Those are just a few of my favorite things!

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
