There is no better way of gaining perspective about a community than by giving back to it. After moving to Colorado and falling in love with our Colorado way of life, I volunteered to be a puppy raiser for guide dogs for the blind. Service to others, empowering people to explore their world through the gift of independence to blind and partially sighted people, is what a guide dog affords a visually impaired person. This activity reinforced a perspective within me not to take anything, not even the smallest detail, for granted. Details matter to everyone, even if only in a small way. We are all connected, and getting the little details right can profoundly shape our quality of life!
