BUG HUGS and so much more

It's officially kicked off. . .BUG HUG bags have arrived and turned out really cute! Now I just need to start getting them filled but I cannot do that on my own. Anyone have some great ideas on how to get items 'donated' or discounted? I need gift cards for stores, restaurants, and anything that might help transplant patients through the toughest road ahead of them. Any one who makes homemade items are welcome to send them to be put in the bags. I will be putting decals and bracelets and handmade quilts/blankets. Even the simple small items can make a hard day a little better for a patient in the ICU. Email me at

Okay. . also, I rode my Vespa for the first time last night!! I did pretty good. I just went up and down the street in front of our house practicing going and stopping and turning.  It's coming back to me . . . .but after 5+ years since I have been on a scooter (which was significantly smaller) this Vespa will take some time to really get the 'feel' for it. My custom white leather seat turned out super freaking awesome and I LOVE it. I can touch the ground with both feet (toes only) but I'll be looking for a pair of boots that will give me a little more height :) Here are pics of my seat!!

Doesn't she look so gorgeous? I think so ;)

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
