Saddle Sore

I have been in Idaho for 10 days and I have crammed a lot in those 10 days. I have been able to get quite a bit of horse riding in, hooray! My first ride on Pixydust was a little stressful. . .she was a little 'frisky'. She forgot that she was a horse and I was in charge haha. She thought about bucking but wasn't too serious about it thank goodness. The thought of taking a hard fall to the ground just doesn't sound fun. I also rode my 21 year old mare "Princess". . .she is such a dream. She is challenging but I don't have to worry one second about her hurting me. My mother and I worked with Pixy and yesterday I got back on her and rode her for about an hour. It was much better and I was able to relax a lot more. I LOVE riding & just being able to have the health and strength to do it again is so amazing!! Every time I ride Pixy I know my Donor gave me that gift.

I am enjoying my vacation yet I miss Bryan like crazy!! He is such a key part of who I am. He is my best friend and I feel incomplete without seeing him. Every day the longing to be back home with him grows and it's tough to stay happy when I miss him so much. Being apart makes me realize how much I absolutely LOVE him. Okay, before I gross everybody out with my gushing I will say goodnight!

Love to hear riding stories!!! Makes me excited to get transplanted and be able to ride again someday :)

I get the same way when I leave Peter. I am so excited to see my family but then when I am there I miss him so much all I want to do is go back home!

The joy and happiness I get when I am riding my horses really just reinforces how much my Donor gave to me and how the little joys in life is what make life worth living and fighting for.

I am fighting the urge to move my flight up by a week to go home to Bryan sooner. . .I am really trying to be tough :)

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
