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

I love my mom

My mom is incredible. She is one of the most kindest and compassionate people that I know. This is a small example of who she is. Saturday my dad and mom rearranged their schedule so that they could 'tend' Cricket while we did our bike ride. After we left, my mom began to have a severe allergic reaction and had to go to the emergency room and then spend the night in icu. (We are so so grateful she is going to be okay). She shared with me tonight that as she was ready to leave for the hospital (note in an emergency situation) she chatted with Cricket and told her she couldn't come but she left her with some beautiful music playing in the background.
Cricket was very happy to visit her at the hospital and see that she was doing better. Love you, mom.
