Liebster Award

It's been a while since I have been on my blog lately and I was surprised to discover that I have been given the Liebster Award by 2 different readers! Thanks guys :) Let Me Fly   and One breath at a Time

Liebster is a German word that literally translates to "favorite", "dearest" or "beloved". By one blogger giving it to another, they are essentially saying, your blog is a favorite of mine. I think it's great that I have been awarded this. I blog mostly to get things off my mind, it's like a journal to me. I find myself surprised people want to read it or find it interesting, but there is a few that do I guess.

The rules of the Liebster Blog Award are:
1) Acknowledge the blogger who gave the award by linking back to them
2) Give this award to 5 other bloggers (who have fewer than 200 readers), and let them know through a comment on their blog
3) Post the award on your blog
4) Best of all - bask in the glory, have fun and share the love!

I really hope that my blog helps others who are searching for hope, support, Faith and most importantly inspiration to keep on fighting and living life despite the trials we all face.

So the blogs that I have chosen to give the Liebster Award to are:

SUPERNINA- I have blogged about how awesome I think Nina is. She is an amazing Cyster/post transplant who is a dear friend of mine who helps keep me motivated. She has ran several races and done road bike races as well. She is a fantastic photographer and I recommend her blog with a 5 star rating :)

CF Fatboy- He is a Fibro who is a web designer. Him and his wife are preparing to soon be licensed Foster Parents. He is very inspiring.

My Journey with Cystic Fibrosis- Amy is a Cyster who is very honest and shares what life is like for her living with CF. She also Crochets and has an etsy store!! She is an inspiration to anyone that reads her blog. She is faced with many trials in her life and she is very honest about her life. She is in the process of planning her BIG Wedding in 8 months!

Nancy's Lung Transplant- I met Nancy in Pittsburgh about 6 months after my transplant. She is a Cyster who also had Cepacia pre-transplant. She is an amazing person who has published several books and inspires many. She has raised awareness of Organ Donation through public speaking. She has an awesome supportive husband and a beautiful daughter who is very involved in Irish Dance Competition.

This One Breath- David is a Man we met when I spoke at a CF education podcast sharing my transplant story. His wife Tiffany was just starting her journey towards getting a transplant. However, she was called home to be with God before she got new lungs. He continues her blog and he shares his faith and insight and honors the beauty of his wife. It's a great blog! His perspective is so inspiring.

Life of Riley's- I know I was just supposed to pick 5. . .but I couldn't just pick 5, So I am also HONORING my sister's blog. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE every one of her posts. She is one of my biggest fans and my very best friend. Her kids are the sweetest things and I LOVE them sooooooo much. Her blog helps me stay connected and updated since I live so far away from them. HER BLOG is definitely one of my FAVORITE blogs by far :)

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
