We reminsced, talked about the future, and enjoyed the day so very grateful to be sharing our life together.
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 human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it. CC Scott

Happy Anniversary, Steve. Twenty-seven years! Where does the time go? I was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa in December 1983, and we were married the following July. Blindness really isn't a big issue in our relationship. As a challenge has come up, we just come up with a solution. This isn't a blindness thing - this is how we live our lives in whatever the challenge has been --working together. I remember at our wedding reception not many people knew of my visual impairment, and I was concerned about knowing when to put my hand out to shake someone's hand. We decided that Steve would lightly touch the back of my elbow when I needed to shake a hand-- 27 years later when someone has reached their hand out and I may be totally unaware that is still our cue when we are together. He does so many simple, kind gestures for me each day. He treats me with love and respect. He is my best friend. He is my #1 fan. We simply wanted to be together all day. We enjoyed last night going to the Hale Centre Theatre for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels . Today we enjoyed the afternoon in Park City and dinner tonight at Loco Lizard - one of our favorites sharing Chicken/Shrimp Suazas. (We split - Steve has the shrimp and I have the chicken.)
