Thirteen Years

13 years ago I found my best friend who could see past my CF and see me :) He has loved me through the best of times and the worst of times. He sat with me for endless hours keeping me company when I had to do "clean outs". He comforted me when I was scared, and when I hurt. He carried me when I couldn't walk. He watched as CF slowly stole my life away and he was there to be my strength to endure. He was by my side every moment of my lung transplant. This is our 5th wedding anniversary since my lung transplant and I couldn't ask for a better life with a better man.

When I was young, I wasn't sure if I would actually live long enough to fall in love and get married. . .then I did. . .and I was afraid of letting someone love me, only to know he would lose me. . .but he told me it was worth it. . . .CF hasn't kept me from living my life and sharing it with my husband.

I'm looking forward to another 13 years! But I'll take as many years and I can get :)

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
