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.

So sweet ...

We have the designated spot in our house where anything someone wants me to 'see' is left ... so I walk in from work last night to an Ann Taylor bag and a sweet note from Steve in this spot. He had made the exchange for my shoes that I love but were the wrong size ... then I turn on the TV to hear President Obama delivering his speech talking about those who thought they were in a job that they would retire from and are now seeking employment ... I think of Steve and the reason he is gone tonight and I shed a few tears of love for this guy and the challenges he is going through!
All of a sudden I feel a paw on my knee ... Cricket, the amazingly in tune to feelings dog, is sensing my feelings and wants to let me know she cares! So sweet!
