The journeys of Becky, blind from retinitis pigmentosa, and her beauitiful guide dogs.
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

2011: Cricket (& Becky) in the spotlight
2011 started off with Shannon and I running our first half marathon together. So awesome. I LOVE half-marathons! The year also started off with the Wasatch Woman fun. Late in 2010 I received a shocking call at the office. I was told that I had been nominated as a Wasatch Woman in the Business Category. I was deeply touched to hear that my daughter had nominated me. She is an amazing writer :). After a process of interviews and voting, I was selected as the overall Wasatch Woman of 2011. It was a beautiful experience and as I sit here reflecting on that journey -- most special part was having dear family and friends there for the event. Those attending except for my closest family members, didn't know that I was going to be selected! It will also be a special Becky/Cricket team memory as she helped me walk to the podium confidently.

I met my friend Bonnie this year. She gave me a gift basket with this quote that I love: A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words. --Unknown.
