Love Love Love

To those of you who read this, you know I love my freinds and family very much.  I have met many new friends on my life changes.  My new lungs brought me closer to my sisters, and the people I didn't think were really close to me, became very involved in my healing process.

My best friend Rebecca and her husband Chris, have been blessed with the most beautiful little angel.  her name is Paige, and she is 10 months old, 11 months on the 24th of July.  I had the greatest pleasure of photographing this amazing little girl and her mother when I visited them this past weekend.  Rebecca was the first one of my friends to vist me while I was in Toronto.  She came by when I was on the transplant floor, 10th floor, of the Toronto general Hospital.  Not only did she visit me, but she brought her faith with her, and it made me stronger.




Getting in touch with my spiritual self, made life so much easier to cope with after the fact.  It was rather difficult to believe, that God would do this to anyone, and hurt them in any way.  But I realized it's not God that did this to me, he chose me, because he knows that I can help make a difference in the lives of others who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis.  To show them that it's not all bad, that Cf is a blessing in disguise.  Cystic Fibrosis, will not take over my life, I have complete control now.  I have faith in God and Jesus to help guide me through things I didn't think I could handle.  You know what they say, God doesn't throw anything at you that you cannot handle.

I am telling you this because Rebecca and Chris have helped me realize that Jesus has died for my sins, and God will be there to greet me, when that time comes.  I can only hope I have made him proud.  Let's start by showing you some pictures of little Paige and Rebecca.  2 of God's wonderful master pieces.

Children are what make the world go round, they laugh, the play, they cry, the want you to love them unconditionally.  and we do.  With a face like this, how can you not.

Much love to all, and peace and prayers to the ones who want and need it.

Kisses & Prayers
