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.

Birthday "Weekend"

A birthday in January is nice - gives one something to celebrate in the cold weather after the holidays.   The birthday celebration can begin when the card comes from my grandma who keeps on top of all our birthdays.  We had some friends call and ask if we could start the birthday celebration weekend :).  We enjoyed dinner, laughter, and celebrating a friendship of 20 years.  Paul and I share the same eye condition - Retinitis Pigmentosa.  We also enjoy as couples many of the same interests and so enjoy our time together.   The sweetest card came in the mail from a dear friend that has been my friend for 44 years.   I ran this morning (so awesome!) with a friend.  The chatter warmed my heart and when we were at our turnaround point, I said, we're already there!   This birthday I'm simply celebrating the gifts of good health, family and friends -- best gifts.

a baby coming in January....YES start the celebrating.
My Matthew was born in January (30th) and I loved it as it gave me something to look forward to do and keep me busy during the winter months....
then by spring, I was more up too getting out with that gorgeous handsome fellow.
