Evacuation gratitude

Posted on Thu, Nov 12, 2015 at 4:00 AM

Thank you to the fire marshal who evacuated my daughter's daycare when there was a gas leak at a construction site near by. Thank you daycare staff for getting every single child to a safe place. Thank you Bell/Aliant building for being the place they went. Thank you St. Matthew's Church/Circus School for taking in the children until parents could be reached and could come get their kids. Thank you again daycare staff for keeping the kids safe and happy and untroubled. Thank you even more daycare staff for keeping your cool, for showing our kids that crazy things happen and that's OK because we, together, are OK. Thank you daycare staff for loving our kids day after day, not just in emergencies but in the monotony of routine where the weeks pass and yet every day is a gift. Thank you Village for helping me raise my kid. She'll pay it forward. —Happy Happy Mama
