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.

I love to check in on Jenn and was enjoying reading her 7-link post. At the bottom, she challenged Cruisin with Cricket to find our 7-links in the following categories:  (I decided to keep my answers to blogs related to blindness and guide dogs.)  This was harder than I realized and if you have time, need your help!

1. My most beautiful posts:  They came from the others who shared on my blog: my children, , my husband , and my parents about what a guide dog means to them -- beautiful.

I found the comments to support our saying good bye
to Missy
so beautiful and supportive. Thank you.

2. My most popular post:  25 things about rp and me was written quickly of things that came to my mind about Retinitis Pigmentosa and me. I love how people will comment or email and share one of the #'s they can really relate to.

3. My most controversial post.  I'm not very controversial. However, I am assertive and stand up for accessibility for all so I'll post one on that topic.   Flight 30 was memorable. Prior and since, I have had many wonderful flights on Delta.

4. My most helpful post.   I don't know if anything I post on my blog is helpful??? 

5. A post whose success surprised me. I must say the popularity of my sharing of organizing my clothes, shoes, and jewelery surprised me , and I loved that some were interested.

6. A post I feel didn't get the attention it deserved I hoped (still hope) to have others share for Resilient Monday .

7. A post I am most proud of: Trying to put into words my two guide dogs and what they mean in my life.

Cricket is at my feet and just sighed as if to say, how much longer are you going to be on that computer?   What are your 7-links?

Silly Becky! Most of your blog is helpful. When you share about something you learned or about being hopeful even when you feel sad... that's helpful to me. I need reminding to be gentle to myself and to find something to smile about. You could pretty much pick any recent post and call it helpful, because they almost always cheer me up and make my day better. :)

I have to agree-your posts about being hopeful and nice to yourself are definitely helpful. There have been countless times when I've been perusing my list of blogs that I follow and read one of yours, only to find that you have something to say that I need to hear; even if I didn't realise it before I clicked on your post.
So, thank you. :)

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Yes, I agree with the others. Your blog is almost always helpful and definitely inspirational.

Your Blog inspires me in so many ways. Your blog makes me smile & it gives a lift to my day. Your blog is a must read for me.

Becky said...

So sweet. Thank you!

:) LOve them!
But one thing I disagree with...
Your entire BLOG is helpful! Not even one post (that you couldn't name).
You have given me so many helpful ideas for when Hanna is older. Organizing, and your recent cooking many times have I said to myself "wow...that makes total sense! But I never would have thought of that!"

I think most of your posts are helpful. Anything when you post a quote or talk about the conferences you've been is an inspiration to me. It generally makes my dad warmer and brighter to read a blog post of yours.

I just read your Flight 30 post. I get people telling me all the time that they are appalled at my behaviour of bringing a dog into a store because "they're scared of dogs." It's hard and a little offensive that they would think I woudl bring an aggressive dog into a store.
