New Year=New Memories

Every new year I'm reminded how blessed I am. My life isn't always peaches and cream....but transplant life has its trade offs. So every new year I focus on the good. * however I will address it for a minute*

2017 I'm looking foward to having the energy & stamina to ride my "Make-A-Wish" horse Pixydust. She was born the spring of 2007 she is my Dream Horse and she is exactly how I dreamed she would be. And today so many more of my dreams have come true. 

Another blessing which is my most treasured. My amazing husband. He married me knowing I would likely die in a few years from cystic fibrosis. He was next to me & cater for me from day one. He Never patronized me. Bryan is sincere, genuine, compassionate, strong snd faithful....but also VERY HANDSOME!! Im so blessed to be celebrated 12 years of beautiful, happy, and fulfilling marriage. ๐Ÿ’

My sister & her kids are my favorite people to hang out with. I treasure my sister times!! Nikkii is such a creative and beautiful soul. She loves everyone and is so thoughtful. I'm grateful I have been given so many more years to build fond & funny memories. She is my friend and one person I feel completely comfortable around. 
Sister Fun!!

My parents have been on our side through all the good & the bad. We've had to lean on them many times. They are such a great example to us and taught me to respect myself, respect others and to find a man who believes the same. My parents taught me how to love unconditionally through their example.

These are the important things in life..money, jobs, even health is never more important than the ones who love you & carry you when you no longer can walk. All I can hope for in 2017 is to continue to be with my family and add another lifetime of memories. ๐Ÿ’•

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
