Jade, my eyes. Jade is my seeing eye dog and we have been working together for two weeks now. I have a lot to learn and Jade is very patient with me. We started to learn how to navigate stairs and I can't begin to count the number of times I tried to second guess his judgement and stumbled, I swear there were several times I could feel him rolling his eyes at me, ha ha. Tuesday we get to try another first, we get to go grocery shopping! My instructor is going to show me how to make a list and how to show Jade what I am looking for. I know Jade will think this is child's play, myself I am already feeling the anxiety of it. Jade can sense my trepidation and he is hovering at my side as I speak.
I can't begin to express how grateful I am to have found this site with all you wonderful people way before I began this journey. I draw strength from each of you every day. All of the support you show not only me but to every person on this site. You all have become like family to me and I feel a special bond to each of you. I am in prayer that one day I will be able to meet each of face to face.
I love each of you and pray for the Lord to keep each one of you strong and guide you in your quit.
I like this 'quit thing'. Laurie
