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

This quote appeared in my email from Margaret. Thank you and may you each be blessed with a day of Gratitude and Thanksgiving. Thank you for reading, for sharing and being a part of our lives.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~Melody Beattie
Happy Thanksgiving! With Love, Becky & Cricket

Becky, I thought lets look at Becky's blog and see what she has to say about gratitude (exact word thought in my head). Funny how well I know you. FYI, I am thankful for you!
