The picture above is a little closer of the hat. Cricket is anxious to continue up the stairs and quickly poses for the camera.
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.

Hope you each had a nice Thanksgiving. A call from our daughter, nice dinner with family, a movie: Blind Side - 5* we loved it, and a walk in the morning = a great day. So very much to be grateful for each and every day. In the picture below we are walking along one of our favorite trails with a beautiful blue sky and mountains in the background.As I pulled out my green knit hat, memories came to mind. I was new in my profession when I was called to the hospital to visit a client who had recently lost her vision. She was a young girl and the last thing she wanted to do was talk to a therapist. (I would have felt the same way.) Over the next few days and visits we formed a connection (thanks to my previous guide dog and some fun girl things manicures, lotions, teaching blind makeup techniques). Fast forward a few more years and I received this special hat that she had knit for me. I pull it out each year and am grateful for this special person, beautiful memories and how others touch our lives.
