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

Furry Love & Helpers

I was finishing up a session on Friday when I received an email from a colleague about the tragic news in Newtown. Tears. Prayers for all who are suffering and experiencing such loss. Inspired by the stories of love amongst it all. A desire for all to have love and compassion in their hearts. Deep gratitude as I sat around with my family. As a therapist specializing in grief/loss, I am on a volunteer list in my church to respond to crisis. I have such a desire to hop on a plane with Cricket ... especially when I saw this story that warmed my heart.
Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy
Then the words of Mr. Rogers: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

Oh Becky, I hadn't seen this on the news. If I were you, I'd want to take Cricket, too. Dogs are such loving animals....And what a wonderful job YOU do as a grief/loss therapist. Thank you for that. It is truly a gift.
