I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears, behold I will heal thee.

Just called to say. . . .

Tonight I got a much needed phone call from one of my most precious and favorite person in this world. I answered the phone not taking much notice to who the call was from. My heart lit up when the smallest cutest voice with so much excitement and conviction spoke.
    "Hi Jamie!! I was watching Despicable Me and I was missing you so we are going to come see you tomorrow before I go to kindergarten. I miss you a lot. Hey, guess what? Despicable me says 'OH YEAH' and blows up it was really funny' I love you."

There is nothing more precious than having someone so sweet and innocent love you so much they think to call you and tell you the moment they had that thought. My niece is very special to me and I do really miss her. I hate that I am away and when I get to come home, she has grown up so much and I have had to miss some of it. A child's love and admiration is more powerful than about any other force on earth. . .that's why Jesus loves the children so much because when you are loved by a child, it is the purest form of love and it's miraculous.

I don't have children and I don't know if we ever will. My sister's kids have a special connection and place in my heart. Tonight MJ made sure I knew I was loved by her and missed. How can that not brighten anyone's day! Love you too MJ and miss you every day!!! It's for moments like these that I fought for my transplant.

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
