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 Nest is Empty
As Kendall pulled away from the house last night with his truck full of his belongings, he said its okay mom I'll come back and visit. Steve and I shut the door, hugged and said we are empty nesters again. Kendall had been back home for the past six months, and we really enjoyed having him here. Multiple emotions run through at this time. We'll get used to our quiet house again and yes, even enjoy it.
I reflect on these amazing children who are now such kind, caring, responsible adults that we love spending time with. They are each beginning a new semester in school this month. (Kendall - undergrad, Adam - law school, and Natalie - MBA) We wish them each well.
When you see them happy and moving forward how can you not be thrilled for them and realize this is the way it is supposed to be. I also can't help but look forward to the next time we will be together as a family. In the meantime, I'll miss tripping over Kendall's shoes that are usually left by the back door and I love when Natalie is here borrowing clothes in my closet.
