Always thankful...

I was reminded this week how lucky I truly am. I was privileged to be able to help a twitter friend work on a special project for one of the most amazing Mommies I have had the honour to stumble across. If you haven't met Heather Hamilton yet, I HIGHLY recommend you do. Heather is one of the strongest, kindest, sweetest people I've encountered on the web. She has shared the trials and tribulations of parenting a child with special needs and has recently been dealing with the loss of her little Zack. I've read her blog and it made me so thankful for the things I have in my life. I truly believe the world is better place because of people like Heather and even though she doesn't know me I will be keeping her family in my thoughts. If you are looking for a great cause to donate to help her family make Zack's Dream room come true at Toronto's Sick Kids :)

So remember, cherish the people in your lives. Make it a priority. One great way to take time for each other is to sit down and eat together or get the (older) kids involved in cooking! This weeks meals lend room for both. I'd love to hear someways you spend time together, or share your meal plans with me and as always, happy planning!
