"I recently returned from my first ever girls weekend. I have three great kids who I love dearly, but 'me time' was definitely needed. The ladies I went away with have become very important to me over the last four years. Most of us live in the same neighbourhood and have kids in school together. They have seen me at my low points and been with me for my highs. They make me laugh until my face hurts and vent along with me when we are upset. Our weekend away made me even more grateful for their presence in my life. I'm so very grateful for all of my girlfriends, my life-long friends, my sister, my neighbourhood friends, my friends who are also mothers, the ones who aren't and even the ones with whom I have drifted apart. They have all played a special and important role within my life and I am so thankful for each of them!"
