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.

Some hopeful thoughts

Hope is a renewable option: If you run out of it at the end of the day, you get to start over in the morning. Barbara Kingsolver

Sending love with some thoughts from Dr. Alan Wolfelt's book: Hope, 30 days of inspiration, to those who need some hope today.

Hope is not a feeling, it is something you do. Katherine Paterson

Were it not for hope, the heart would break.

--Find a sacred space that feels hope-filled and visit it frequently.

--Make a collage of words or pictures that symbolize hope in your mind and heart.

Hope is complicated. . .because you attach to something unseen and un realized. I love having faith that my life is unfolding and I will not be alone to embrace whatever comes.
I love the Valentine you sent to me! Thank You again, SuzyG and Mirage

Thank you for your post, Becky! Yes, aren't we so fortunate to have mornings. It helps even more when they're sunny mornings!

GOOD STUFF
I love Barbara Kingsolver's books!!
And I love the book you sent me....I read one of the pages/days every morning.
HOPE....where indeed would we be without it.
and I love the part about finding a sacred place

say hello to all "the gals" for me. tomorrow will be 3 months since Matt's death. I am sure it will be a difficult time for me. I'll take a walk...kind of my sacred place, and reflect on him.
