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

Wishing I was in DC

I have found this day inspiring. I had a phone session this morning right when President Obama was to deliver his speech - I asked my client - 'do you want us to talk later so you can watch his address?' She indicated no she was fine to continue. (I told myself - Stay focused on your session, Becky). Whether you agree or disagree with his policies, etc - this is a great day in our history. I believe we all have the right to dream and not be held back by race, religion, disability or any other reason. I feel increased unity and inspired to think of how I can make a small difference. YES WE CAN -- (t-shirt gift from Natalie and Adam). It is about to be covered by a sweater while I finish my day at the agency!

I listened to the radio on the way to GDB this morning. It gave me chills to know that history was being made, as I listened on......

Yes we Can. . cute!
I was driving with a friend to yoga and broke out in tears. I am so proud of our country and that there were so many references to God. Also a quote from ecclesiasteses.(I think) Maybe Psalms or Proverbs. I love that he has called upon we the People to do our part and stand United.
Such leadership is heart warming.
