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.

Last Sunday we were in St. George at the sweetest branch for church.  We love it.  They are inspiring and one day I want to go down and spend a week down there and interview them ... what is their secret to such resilience, gratitude, joy for life inspite of all their difficulties.  They have such wisdom.  What do you think they would say?  What would you say?  Today at our own ward we heard one of my very favorite quotes (I have so many favorite quotes) that we also heard last week in the branch.  “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  Marianne Williamson

We drove to church (brr it is so cold) and Cricket joined us as her work for the day.  She was great ... some snoring and hopping up when they say amen :).
