It seems so long ago since I've blogged, but really it hasn't. A month maybe? I'm not an avid blogger. I blog when I think of it. Let's be honest; I think about it all the time, I have lists of blogs I read each day while on VEST, but I really only blog when I make myself take time to do it. I always say I'm a bad blogger, and I'm going to try to get better, both true statements, but in all reality the only way for me to get better at blogging is if I physically make time. Maybe I should make that part of my New Years resolution? Who knows. Anyways enough rambling.
I hope everyone is doing good. I am doing great!! Staying healthy-despite the rediculiously cold weather we've been having where I live. Tomorrow morning its supposed to be -15* brrr! But in all honesty I do really like snow. Driving in fresh new snow is so fun(If it's not icy). I love looking out the window at fresh snow, when it's sunny outside and just watch it twinkle. It just makes me happy. Don't get me wrong. I dislike cold weather but there's just something about snow. It's also my favorite time of the year. Christmas time. I LOVE Christmas. I'm one of those who thinks about it all year long. I enjoy everything about it: the meaning of it, being thankful, the music, giving presents, and just the joy of it. It's the time of year where people spend to much money on gifts, possibly get wrapped up in buying presents, but I love seeing how people enjoy giving to others. It makes me happy. I too also enjoy giving gifts to people this time of year and seeing everyone get happy, but I also have to remember the true meaning.
Last time I blogged, or the time before, I mentioned my grandpa, and how he had a stroke. He's still at the nursing home but doing better.
I know I'm rambling but as things pop into my head I'm writing them down.
My baby is doing good, he too is enjoying the snow, except he gets cold to quick.
Could he get any cuter. Man I love him.
Oh, so this year I went Black Friday shopping with my dad...on Friday, which is something surprisingly he enjoys as do I. We don't wait in lines for things and we go shopping for ourselves. It's the time of the year when we all get new clothes since their on sale. This year was no different, we got clothes that were on major sale, I got a pair of boots that were an awesome deal, and I finally got my new bed spread. It was finally discounted enough and my cheapness got the best of me(side note, I'm a total sale shopper).
Isn't it sharp? So colorful, and reversible, I love it:
Other than that, that's about it. Oh here's a picture of me and Bo the other day-not the greatest but that's okay:
Sorry for my ramblings, I will try to write either before or after Christmas. If I don't write before I hope everyone has a great Christmas!! Have some Joy:
Go watch a good Christmas movie, I suggest The Chistmas Shoes & The Christmas blessing. I cry everytime. Go listen to some great Christmas music, spend time with the ones you love. Be thankful for everything you've been blessed with this year and remember the true meaning of Christmas.
My name is Paige. I have Cystic Fibrosis. I am a fun loving, small town girl with big dreams...trying to live my life to the fullest. I am a Christian. My family is my priority. I was homeschooled since my freshman year of high school and graduated a year earlier at age 17-Senior 2012. I love anywhere with an ocean. My favorite color is Pink of course. I have a crazy love for food. I love to travel. I want to see the world. I enjoy spending time with my family & friends. In March 2011 I went on my Make~A~Wish trip to the most beautiful island in the world, Bora Bora. I have written a book called, Growing up with Cystic Fibrosis the first 13 years. It's about living with Cystic Fibrosis (an incurable illness). I wrote the book to help people. I have recently started to get involved with public speaking. I believe that my purpose in life is to help people, and to make a difference. I believe that God put me on this earth for a reason, and i'm not going to let him down.

"I was asked once, "If you could tell the world one thing about Cystic Fibrosis, what would it be?" And it is this. That CF hurts. It hurts physically when it feels like sandpaper is scraping your lungs with every breath. It hurts mentally to plan for and get excited about a life you may never lead. It hurts to fall in love because ...CF can be an extraordinary burden on anyone who is not meant to deal with it, most times resulting in rejection and loneliness. It hurts to watch dozens of friends lose this fight that they never deserved or asked for. But most of all, it would hurt to not have been blessed with the chance to experience life through a CFer's eyes: No love is half-given, no day is not lived to its fullest and NOTHING is taken for granted." ~posted by a fellow CFer
