Christmas Eve. .Eve :)

It's pretty much here! I am so incredibly excited. Today I chatted with Susanne on Facebook. . . she got the green light for some ice cream today! What a Merry Christmas this is indeed :)

I try to put on a tough exterior, because in reality that is the only way to survive sometimes. I am missing my family,the parties, the laughing and the memories. This is our 4th Christmas being a long ways away from our families. In 2007 we were in Pittsburgh and I was still confused and suffering from dementia that I didn't know where I was & I thought I had presents stacked in my room(which ended up being the med cart) haha. In 2008 we had just moved to Phoenix that November. Bryan started school the first part of December. Then there was 2009. . .still in Phoenix, although we did have a lot of family come to Phoenix after Christmas and 2009 was a fun Holiday Season. This year however, we are going to be quite alone. But Bryan and I enjoy having each other. We don't need much more than that to be happy :) Bryan will get a 3 day weekend for Christmas. I miss home that's for sure. But home is where your heart is right...and my heart belongs to Bryan.

I thought I would share a link to a beautiful video that always brings the Christmas spirit in my soul. Not sure I will blog again until after Christmas...so Merry Christmas 2010!

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
