Back where I belong

I flew into Dallas, Tx this morning and was greeted with lots of kisses from Bryan :) It feels good to be back home, however it was very hard to say goodbye to all my family and friends. My niece MJ kept asking me "why do you have to leave?" and then she clung to my waste and legs when I was trying to get my luggage in the Shuttle Van. It's hard living so far from so many things I love. I feel like I miss out sometimes. BUT, life has brought us to Oklahoma and we are making it by, I am healthy, and Bry is doing what he loves . . .can't complain about that. I sometimes think I would like to move closer to home yet I am torn because living away from our families has opened many doors for both Bryan and myself, so I am okay with being happy wherever life takes us.

Importantly I got to spend 5 weeks in Idaho, rode my horse quite a bit, spent much needed time with my friends & my sister. . .had some wicked fun "Girls Nights", did some camping and enjoyed being with my parents. All in all a very good trip. I missed Bryan and as much as I wanted to stay all summer, my heart wouldn't let me. I am back where I belong.

Though I am a bit closer to my family I know what you mean. I love going "home" and seeing my mom and dad, my brother and his kids and wife. But the whole time my heart aches for Peter. It tears you apart. I give you much credit for being away for 5 weeks! I can barely make it 5 days lol!!! <3

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
