Living the Dream

I kinda feel like I am living the dream that I have held on to for the last 25 or so years. I just wrapped on the movie I was in and that was an amazing experience all around. I am still in awe at the blessing I have been showered with the last few years. It is incredible. I know the decision to get a lung transplant for Cystics can be a difficult one. After so many exhausting years of fighting CF and eventually you feel like you cannot fight another day and force your lungs to take in another breath, going through the unknown and the fears of a transplant can be too much. . .

But if I had decided I was done and I could not fight any longer then I would have missed out on so much life that has awaited me. I got to ride my horse Pixydust, I got to celebrate 4 more wedding anniversaries with my husband, I got to travel across the country, I have made some incredible life long friends, I was reconnected with my best friends from my childhood, I have gotten to watch my niece MJ grow up and this year she starts kindergarten, I have performed on stage again, I have done Professional Improv, I got to see Bryan follow his dream of being a motorcycle technician, I have worked in a casting office, was in a national commercial, got to know famous actors, and just finished being on a film set for a month. . . I am sure I could add a ton more stuff but as you can see there was so much life waiting for me to live and there is more ahead of me in my future.

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
