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 Daffodil Principle

We're smiling. We had our chance this morning to begin to clean up our flower beds and get in a run around the park.
Steve was excited that from our kitchen window he could see some of the daffodils he had planted last fall beginning to poke out of the dirt. Cricket and I went outside to explore and yes, we could feel that there are lots of daffodils that will be emerging.
I love the daffodil principle. One step at a time ... one bulb at a time ... cleaning one flower bed at a time.

Love the daffodil principle -- so true -- good for me to remember when I start getting overwhelmed with too much at once!

Love Cricket's happy smile!

I hadn't heard that story before. True on so many levels! I love daffodils. They're like sunshine on a stem.

Thank you for sharing the Daffodil Principle with me. It's a wonderful story & the book is beautifully illustrated.
