Winner Winner Meatball Dinner!

Well...it's been quiet in here lately.  A few people have asked us if we are OK.  Let me reassure you all is well!  We are just busy with the ordinary busy-ness of life.  Can't complain about that!

My kids favourite Dinner On The Table .... meatballs and 'sgetti

I feel like we are moving on from all the drama of the last few years.  Immediately after Murray's brain injury and Ashlea's transplant life was chaotic.  After awhile things settled down while we came to terms with what had happened.  Now we are picking up again.  It's time to start moving forward again.  

I'm not sure what will happen with the blog?  I wonder if my kids need to have control over their online presence as they get older?  Maybe they won't want their friends reading their mother's ramblings??  I do love the connection I have with families I have met through the blogosphere though so maybe I will hang around for awhile yet?  

Whatever happens with the blog there is one thing I need to share with you all.  I have lots and lots of awesome friends - one named Rachel who has started an awesome business - making home made meals and delivering them to time poor parents (such as myself).  She also happens to be passionate about making a difference to families affected by disability.  Have a look at her promo video (you might see some familiar faces!).  If you know anyone who would be interested in buying meals, or a family affected by disability who might qualify for free meals please get in touch via her website.  This is a great business and is pretty much the only way my kids get fed each week!!! Please consider supporting Rachel in getting this business going.  If you like her video please share it far and wide to get the word out there.  Sadly for some of my overseas readers delivery is only to certain areas of Sydney at the moment.  She does have big plans for expansion but probably not THAT far!

Go to THIS PAGE for the promo video or you can view it here on youtube.

First time I have come across your blog, I am linked up after you on Twinkly Tuesday. It is interesting that you are wondering where to go and it sounds like you've been through so much. Good luck with your new journey and keeping your blog going. Meatballs look yum. Mackenzie Glanville (reflectionsfromme.com)

I'm also wondering how much to share about my son as he gets older. So glad to have found your blog!

It's definitely hard when the kids start getting older as to whether they need some input as to whether they are talked about online! We are a long way off that though so I can carry on writing hehe! Wishing your friend the best of luck with her business - sounds like a fab idea! Thanks so much for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

Good luck to Rachel and her great business idea. She should be so proud of the job she is doing to help people with and caring for someone, with a disability. I am sure she will make a difference.

I have adored following your beautiful family and your amazing strength.

I haven't blogged for a while either - but I think what struck me about your blog, and constantly challenges me (and I'll miss if you don't keep it up, but I respect what you are saying)was reading your evidence of thankfulness. I loved hearing what was going on in ALL your lives, it reminded me to pray for you, shows the depth of Christian community and stopped me navel gazing!

Hey, friend! This is just a quick hello to say you continue to be daily in my prayers. With love, Deb.
