Canadian Down Syndrome Awareness Week - More Alike Than Different

More alike than different.........................I bet you're wondering what that has to do with tomatoes right?

I had a dream last night that I want to share with you.  I thought it would be an interesting story to share today because this is the first day of Canada's National Down Syndrome Awareness Week.

In my dream last night, I was myself but K was a tomato.  A beautiful, delicious, red, & yes, just a perfect little tomato. In my dream it just seemed very natural that K was a tomato.  There was a big big basket of other wonderful looking little tomatoes.  I could tell that K wanted to play with them & I remember thinking that she was just a little different than them so I would be able to find her again so I set her in the basket with them.  She immediately started to wriggle around playing with them & within a few seconds I couldn't tell which one she was.  I kept trying to figure out how  I could pick her out of the others but there were no differences.  She was just as red, lovely & delicious as all the other tomatoes.  By the time I woke up I was starting to get frantic because I couldn't find my beloved little tomato. 

More alike than true!

Happy National Down Syndrome Awareness Week!  I'll be posting every day this week in celebration of my wonderful daughter with DS ! I'd love to hear from my Canadian readers this week.  Please let me know your out there & if you have a blog feel free to post a link.
