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.

Smile

If you've read my blog for long you know I absolutely love my job. I work with nine wonderful, amazing therapists that are also dear friends; I set my own hours; and the days just fly by as I work with clients who are so desirous of working through difficult challenges. A client today was sharing with me how helpful it had been to have a place he could simply process and sort through his challenges and know it was confidential between the two of us ... then he stopped and looked over at Cricket. He said, wow it is a good thing that your dog can't talk. She hears a lot in a day :D. At that moment Cricket thumped her tail (she heard her name and enjoyed we had turned our attention to her!)

Examined lives are indeed more worth living.

This was such a cute story! You (and Cricket!) have no doubt blessed many lives. Therapy is a great thing.

I really enjoy reading your story.
Cricket and you are both so lucky to have each other!

It's good to have a job you love. Many people have to go through life doing something they don't enjoy at all ----just to make a living.

It is also good to "examine" you life from time to time to see where your at and where you need to go.
then you wonder, how the crappola am I going to do that.
that's what I do
