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

Happy Birthday, Grandma

She turned 94 today. She is incredible and I am so grateful that I can still pick up the phone and talk to her and even better yet see her (not often enough). She is such a thoughtful person - she remembers our birthdays and anniversarys before we do! She is an avid learner and has always had such an interest in reading and learning about the world.

She is such a great cook - and always brings yummy treats to any ocassion.
I remember getting my 'days' with her and loving to spend time with her and my grandpa. I am grateful that my children and husband also have been blessed to have many wonderful experiences with her as well. Love you grandma!

I wish I could figure out a way to send your message to Mom. She would love it. She loves you so and still talks and laughs about things you and Cindy did on your "days."
