Its the holidays so I wont spend much time here at my computer, but I want to publicly thank all the hydro, fire and other emergency workers who have given up much of their holidays to make our Christmas warm and merry. Its truly the best gift we could have received this year.
The power outage despite being a hassle was a bit of a blessing in disguise. It brought and is still bringing families and friends closer together. I have never received so many friendly smiles and hellos from strangers. On facebook, I never saw one complaint of the outage, just genuine offers to help where needed. Its truly incredible the people we become when put to the test, its one of the traits that makes Canada and Canadians truly great.
I am very thankful for having that grit and determination running through my blood for when I get put to the test next summer (had to relate it back to this blog somehow!).
So again, thank you emergency workers! We owe you so much.
