3 weeks tomorrow....

May 20th will be my first day of class, which is exactly 3 weeks from tomorrow :) I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. I NEVER thought I would ever be taking any type of college or tech college classes. I'm hoping I'll be good at it and that I can make good home based business out of it. Bryan is very supportive which is soooo nice. With the help of friends and family and others buying decals & bracelets I'm close to having my money for school. I'm only a few hundred dollars away. :) I'm so happy that it is becoming a reality.  

One reason I'm fascinated with nails is that my entire childhood I would bite my nails....every single finger was chewed down to nothing....and not only that but I obsessed over my clubbing as well. I LOVED press on nails despite the fact they never fit right. 

After my transplant my clubbing reduced significantly and for one of the first times I was able to wear acrylic nails...my hands were so beautiful. I'm excited to be able to help other women feel beautiful and pampered.  I will be done with school the first week in August! It will be a long summer and lots of work but I'm hoping its fun and that I pick it up easily :) WISH ME LUCK.

  Save a Life...Be Someone's Hero...    Be An Organ Donor!

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
