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

Follow your heart


Natalie is taking the GMAT test tomorrow in preparation for grad school. Thinking of you, Nat! Cheering you on! Natalie helped me get through my master's program. As I am thinking about her, remembering our special memories of her 'job' as my reader. We would set a time and she would come ready to read to me. Oh, I love this girl! At the time she was in 5th and 6th grade when she began helping me read from textbooks and sorting through some of the challenges of statistics and psychology! I think back to her reading really big words and describing the math problems on the page. Even as a young little girl, she believed in me. I believe in you, Natalie! Follow your heart.

Wow! That must have been a real learning experience for her to read textbooks like that at her age. I'm sure it made her all the smarter for studying those kinds of books at that age. How can she not do great!
