I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears, behold I will heal thee.

Home is wherever I am with you. . .

My lip has healed up nicely and there doesn't seem to be a scar! That makes me very happy~

We have some crazy things happening in our life right now. Good things can come from change. One thing about life is that I am still healthy enough to spend time with Bryan. It doesn't mean that life is always going to be what I want or be 'easy' but it's always good because I get to spend more time with the ones I love. Money, work and "things" are all come and go but family and friends are forever. 

No matter where we move to or what job Bryan or I work we end up getting incredible people who become a big part of our lives. In Phoenix we made life long friends and it was hard to leave and say "goodbyes" and here in Oklahoma we are surrounded by so many awesome people who have shown us so much love. My employers the Mills are such incredible and generous people I love them like family. We have some neighbors down the street who we adore and have grown close to in just months. I have been able to re-connect with a childhood friend and I LOVE spending time with her. But as one chapter ends another one begins. Life is made up of a lot of adventures and journeys with a lot of characters and my book of my life still has many chapters that will continue on and tell our story. 

Change should be something that can be looked at with optimism and hope. It's rarely easy and can be overwhelming however, I have found  every 'change' in my life leads me to good things, good people, and good memories. 

One of my favorite quotes which I think describes Bryan and I's life is "Home is wherever I am with You" and that sums up why I am happy. I don't care honestly where I live or what I have as long as I am with Bryan. He is my world, my purpose and my priority. I will follow him to the ends of the world if I had to. 

This post may be confusing or all over the place but I have things on my mind that connect all these thoughts into one continuous thought. I promise. I'm just hanging on to what I know is important and also keeping my anti-anxiety meds close by. hahahaha! All I have to say is that in the last 5 years life has taken me to places I never thought I would be and it's not going stop keeping me on my toes and teaching me new things. :)

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
