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

In this picture, we are in purple - the color of awareness for Domestic Violence Month.

We just completed Domestic Violence Awareness Month. As I posted earlier in the month, more needs to be done to educate, talk, and STOP this from happening. As a therapist, I wish we had moreNatalie's talking and sharing and transforming such a sad, difficult experience into making the world a better place. As a mom, I love and am inspired by this girl each day. I am so grateful to be her mom, friend and learn from her each day. Go to her site, if you haven't already - its not too late to enter one of the giveaways and its never too late to talk, educate, and support as we put a stop to Domestic Violence. I am grateful each day for her courage and the beautiful daughter and son (in-law) that we are so blessed to have in our life now.

After having this occur in my extended family, I am very supportive and outspoken about the need for increased education! Thanks for posting that link.

Wearing the purple eye shadow today, a very appropriate color, and reminiscent of the bruising left by the batterer.
In my former marriage I was abused. Shame, embarrassment and humiliation allow the abuser to keep abusing. If you are in a relationship where there is rage, unreasonable jealousy and you feel you are being separated from your friends and family you could be next!
Run, get help from a therapist. See how your self worth issues make you vulnerable.
Sincerely, Susan and Mirage
