Nothing we have ever done can compare to what you have chosen to do with your lives. We make beef jerky, you save lives. Wow. That’s embarrassing for us...not even on the same scale of comparison!
Can you imagine the magnitude of working somewhere where you literally see people at their very worst, all the time?
Maybe they are so sick, so tired, so scared, so worried, so drunk, so high, so abused, so injured, or so emotionally broken they cannot function in that moment.
Our little community hospital in Stony Plain, Westview Health Center, is full of Doctors and Nurses who choose to work irregular hours, shift work, weekends, and holidays and we are blessed to have them so close by
All four of our children were born here, and we have since made a few middle-of-the-night trips to the ER with the children for croup and ear infections. Trevor’s Mom broke her wrist in our shop weeks before we opened and Westview Health Centre had her all decked up in a pretty pink cast before we could blink.
We snuck in last night and set up a special dessert table just for the amazing staff at WHC, who will be taking care of the people in our communities over the holidays
They will be giving themselves to us, the people who need them the most, all the while missing their own families Christmas moments.
Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. To all of our caregivers, may you be proud of the work you do, the people that you are, and the difference that you make and please know that our whole community appreciates you
We have covered the dessert table with local treats from Orchard Berry Arrangements, Cake Affair, Blake’s Bakery, Kick Ass Caramels, Whipped Up Baked Goods, and Choco-licious. Who-Ville Tree is from Growers Direct.
Enjoy and Merry Christmas
