Happy Thoughts

I am feeling lately like I am in a bit of a slump. I get this way once in a while. BUT tonight I want to post something positive and up beat because I can't stay down for very long. It's easy for me to get side tracked   from all the wonderful things in life by the few hard things. I am quickly approaching my 3 year post transplant anniversary which honestly I find it hard to believe that I have enjoyed so much quality life already. Well, it's not quite here, but just a little over a month away. In the last 35 months I  have traveled to Pittsburgh, lived in Phoenix, and took a short vacation to California. I have been supportive to my husband's dream to work on motorcycles, which also lead me to performing with the Jester'z Improv Troupe. I have made some new life long friends (the Haratuku's) and now we are off to new places and opportunities. I have to try to not focus on the fears of moving to such an unexpected area of the country. . .and I try to see the silver lining.

If we get the condo that we have applied for, we will literally be within walking distance of the University of Oklahoma so I am considering looking into taking some classes and learning/expanding on some of my interests. I will also get to see Bryan more and spend more time with him which is a SUPER PERK :) I am planning on flying home 2-3 times next year just as I do now. I may be a little farther away from home but if I never leave my comfort zone than how can see the world. My stress isn't magically going to go away, but I have enough will power (most of the time) to push through it and see the glass as half full. I hope all is well with everyone.

If you can please include Supernina in your prayers. She is still struggling with some stomach complications from her transplant. She had surgery on her tummy/guts a week or so ago and is recovering. Thanks!

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
