Getting Settled

We have been in Oklahoma a little over a month. . .doesn't really feel like it's been that long. I am happy to have already made a friend! It took me over a year to make my friend in Phoenix. I mean I had friends, but ya know the 'friend' you can hang out with and spend time with. We have a lot in common and I think we'll spend quite a bit of time together :)

Bryan likes his job and he gets along good with the other guys at the shop (I knew he would). Bryan is an easy guy to like and get along with. We have spent the last couple nights hanging out with one of the guys from work and his wife. It is nice to have them to do thing with. So all good things!

I meet with the vocational rehab worker tomorrow. . .not sure what that is going to be like, but I should get an idea if and how much they'll help me with school. I am kinda leaning towards going to the University because apparently we get automatic 'resident' status here. So no out of state tuition!! But like I said before I will make that decision when I have to & right now I am still unsure.

Also, if you remember about a month ago my friend Susanne got her new lungs in Pittsburgh. She is doing great with the lungs, but last week she fell due to the weakness of her body from the surgery (it's common to lose muscle strength after surgery). She apparently broke her leg/knee and has been admitted back into the hospital where she is under supervision and physical therapy. Please keep her in your prayers that she will recover and that she can stay positive. I can only imagine how frustrating a set back like that could be. 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
