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.
The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

Right by my side ...
Sometimes with blindness (and without) we search for things that end up being right by our side. A good friend w/RP, Paul, shared with me one time his ten second rule ... if he loses something he searches for it and if he can't find it in 10 seconds he moves on with his task and eventually it often turns up (the missing measuring spoon that has been moved over just a little bit on the counter, etc) I laugh because sometimes I will 'lose' Cricket and find her right by my side. This morning I was calling for her (in the house) and didn't hear her coming... finally there was this little nudge on my leg as if she was saying - right here! It gives her job security, right.
