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.

Walking up Memory Lane

Oh ... my cute kids!

Almost daily Cricket and I walk the street where we lived while our kids were growing up. (We moved five years ago). It is funny the random people that will tell me later they saw us walking or roll down their window and say hi- today: I hear Hey Becky, its Sally and the kids. Smile -- I instantly reminisce to the time we were young women leaders together ... took the girls on an overnighter and put all our Italian leftovers in the fridge and the next morning the whole condo reeked of garlic. I walk past where the old Subway was and reminisce about Natalie and I sitting there after she had her braces put in and trying to eat a sandwich before we walked back to her school. The bus stop where we would get on to go so many places. Times have changed and now we don't need to be in a location that is accessible to the orthodontist, elementary school, junior high, grocery store, bank, bus stop. Such great memories and good people. Today school begins and moms are walking their kids to school ... still seems like it could be me ... sigh. Life really goes by so fast.

Funny you should be walking down memory lane............I have been too. Thinking about my Mom & all the good times that we shared together. Life goes by in an instant. Your kids were so cute. Now they're all grown up. Thanks for sharing those wonderful photos.

From what I can tell from your photos, it's amazing how much your kids still look the same! The same sweet faces, all these years later.

What a blessing to be rooted in your 'ancient'' tribal ground. And remember.
