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.

Bright spots

Winter Challenge today is Bright and Bold.  This little green jacket was a purchase for a St. Patrick's Day fundraising event we attended years ago. I don't wear it too often. The challenge of wearing something bright seemed like a great opportunity. My photographer, Steve, had a super early meeting so we were up early to get our picture taken :).  This bright little bracelet I seem to wear often for that pop of color.  It has lime, orange, blue, brown, black and white in it. 
Some other bright spots in my day:
 
Evening chat with Natalie &  Adam. .  We are loving having them close. Getting to see this mom and baby .  So beautiful. 

Off to get ready for running.  Steve and I are enjoying listening to President Thomas S. Monson's book - To the Rescue.  His life of faith and service is inspiring.  One of the quotes that he shared with some missionaries when he was mission president and it was very cold:  Dress warm.  Work hard and don't look at the thermometer.  I'll be sharing that with my running buddies :) this morning. 

May you have a bright day.

What a nice jacket! I love the colour on you, and it definitely draws out the bracelet's colour. Love it!! Have a good day!

The color of that jacket is beautiful!

And my husband just finished President Monson's biography and LOVED it. I'm hoping to get it on CD so I can listen to it (since that's the only way I get through books these days!)

Love the color of that jacket! And my husband and I are reading Pres. Monson's biography right now - we just started it and are loving it so far! We read Pres. Hinckley's and Pres. Kimball's before this one, so it's fun to learn about their different personalities and faith.
