My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Happy Grandparents Day!

I am very fortunate that my grandma W (affectionately known as g-wall) is still such an active part of our family. She remembers our anniversary before I do! She is soon to be 93 and is truly amazing!


I am so glad that my kids have grandparents who are a close part of their lives. I love this picture with Natalie and a grandma and her grandsons in China. It shows the love of a grandparent that has no bounds.

By the way, Cricket gets SO excited when she sees my mom! She runs a little happy dance around the room (unless she is in harness and she is well behaved, right!)

I was very fortunate to have my grandmother live with us from the time I was 4 until her passing in 2002 (I will be 34 at the end of the year). I can't imagine my future kids (hopefully!) not being as close to their grandparents as I was to my grandmother. I never met my father's father whom I am named for (Nicholas) but am very proud to carry on a family name.
