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.

It takes a village ...

It really seems to take a group of people (and a dog) to help me get through the day! I just received a phone call from Sego Lily Cafe telling me they had my wallet from lunch. Steve will go pick it up for me and Lisa will make sure the office is left open seems that I now don't have my keys to go back into the office. I am so grateful for all the people that come behind me literally picking up the pieces of what I leave behind or forget! (Out of sight ... out of mind)

By the way, if you are in Bountiful, Utah; I highly recommend Sego Lily Cafe. I've been there four times in the past two weeks so they did recognize me and maybe felt like I was family when I left my wallet. It is just so pleasant to sit outside and enjoy this beautiful weather surrounded by an old house, wildflowers, and friends.

It's so nice to be reminded of human kindness. Nothing is worse than having your wallet lost or stolen! If you haven't done this already, it's a good idea to make a photocopy of everything in your wallet--all your credit cards, memberships, etc. Then, you know exactly who you need to call when something does happen.

Mimi - That is a great idea and for as often as this happens, I really need to do that! Thanks

I couldn't make it through life without help from my family & friends. They are always there when I need them & I hope I'm there for them too.

Wow, gratitude comes to mind. . . .I left my wallet on the para transit bus twice in two weeks! The first time it took 5 days to get it back!!!
The second time, the driver brought it to me during a yoga class and only requested a HUG for it's return. He said he knew how difficult it would be for me to get it.
I threatened to attatch a cow bell to it :-) LOL
