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.

You Go Girl

This is a picture of Natalie taking some of her first steps with Grandma cheering her on and she is walking towards her mom (me!) about 24 years ago. I love her enthusiasm and confidence in this picture and its still there. She has always been willing to try new adventures and take that new step with a smile - even when its scary. Today Natalie is beginning an MBA Program. The student in me is thinking about her as you go to that first class and combination of overwhelm for the new semester and excitement of learning. The mom in me wants to be there to take a picture of her on her first day of school. However, distance and perhaps she doesn't still like that at 24 :D eliminate that from happening tonight. But I can't stop thinking about her and want to hear all about her day. You go girl!

First steps are exciting AND scary at any age. I'm sure Natalie can step out with confidence, knowing her fabulous mom is there supporting her in spirit.

What fun to see that picture and remember that cute baby. So loved and such a smiling little soul. Our thoughts have been with her today as well and hope it is good. We know she will do well as she is one smart cookie (like her Mom and Dad)!
