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

I haven't posted in a few days mostly because I was getting as much Grandma time is as I could :) This weekend was fun and I swam at their Hotel pool almost every night. I noticed how completely out of shape I am for swimming. lol.

I am really starting to HATE shopping though. We went to the mall (mostly I wanted one on one girl time with Grandma) and did some shopping. I cannot stand the clothes that I have to buy.
hopping Pictures, Images and Photos
I am so 'petite' that I have to shop in the Jr.'s section & I cannot tell you how much I despise the freaking styles right now. I already did the whole "super skinny jean" back in the late 80's and frankly I don't care to do it again. They only look good if you wear a pair of heels, which I cannot tolerate heels anymore. If you LOVE skinny jeans and you can look fabulous in them congratulations, I however cannot. Oh and I refuse to buy jeans that are so worn out and holey that I know they will be completely falling apart in just a few months! I remind me of my mother when I would shop with her for school clothes. hahaha. Another frustrating thing. . .I am skinny, but apparently I am not skinny enough for a size 1 in one jean, but the next size 1 will be too big?! What is with clothing manufactures. . oh that's right they are all made in foreign countries. Needless to say I was unsuccessful at finding anything I loved enough to buy it & I have to really LOVE something in order to spend money on it. I need to start a 'realistic' clothing line for women who don't want to have to peel their pants on and off :)

So that's my rant about clothing. Sorry. I think the whole daylight savings time finally caught up to me cuz today I slept in AND I feel extremely lazy and lethargic. I am hoping I can find some energy to fit in a run/workout today. . .I ate out with my grandparents and I may have a few extra pounds to burn off now :)

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
