Headed Home Again :)

I have been given an opportunity to go back to Idaho the first week of Sept. and visit my family again before it gets cold in Idaho. It will be a bit of a short trip and once again I have to leave Bryan home. It breaks my heart and his too. He hasn't been home in almost 2 years. It doesn't feel fair by any means. I enjoy going home this time of year because my hometown hosts the Eastern Idaho State Fair. I get to see people I haven't seen in YEARS and I make a little money working at a booth.

The fair isn't the only reason I am excited to go home, but I get to be home for my little sister's birthday. Nikkii is my best friend and I miss having her close every day. I love spending time with her and her family so every chance I get I take it!!

MJ, my niece starts kindergarten on Monday. . .I probably miss her the most. She is growing up so fast and I love that little girl so very much. I wish every day that I could be closer to spend more time with her. It's hard cuz the reality is I don't know how long my lungs will stay healthy and rejection free. I am planning on many more years. . .I pray she will remember her Aunt Jamie when I am gone.

I have so much that is dear to me and that I love in Idaho. I don't love Idaho winters, but all that I love is in Idaho. . .so in turn I will always love, miss and treasure Idaho :)

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
