Moving Up...I guess?

It's been a while since I posted...So here's an update. 

Bryan was offered a good job with a new Yamaha Shop back in  Norman, OKLAHOMA. YEP, you read that right...we are back in Oklahoma.  The move in was rough. After driving 2 days I was disappointed that the house we rented was not "move in ready" in fact it was dirty and lots of things had to be fixed while we were trying to move in. I pretty much had to clean the house top to bottom with the help of my friend Lisa Sims :)  I was shocked in the house condition considering our landlord is a real estate agent....

Once I got it cleaned up its a nice little (although well used and abused) house). It's a rental so what can I expect? 

Bryan is liking his job, he's busy getting things organized and put together at the shop. I started working very part time at Mills Body Shop again until I can get things sorted out with my nail tech license stuff. 

I found a pole fitness studio in town and I've started taking classes...it's fun and challenging. I am sore after each workout. :) I'm hopeful that this move will be a good thing. I really would like to see Bryan    Succeed here at the shop and eventually move into a management! Also I pray we are safe from tornados. lol 

I was supposed to go to UPMC in Pittsburgh this month for my annual follow up clinic but I had to cancel my appointments due to our unexpected move. I'm a little bummed since we had panned on going to NYC for a few days before my appointments. NYC is one of the places I've ALWAYS wanted to go to but never seem to get there. :(  Bryan's sister finished her medical internship in NYC recently and will be moving so unfortunately we missed seeing them there as well. Oh well, life goes on. 

Also don't forget April is National Organ Donation Awareness Month!! I'm planning on posting some very transplant related blog posts this month. :) stay tuned!!

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
