    My 3 year 3 month d daughter rescued me as I got stuck in the kitchen balcony due to a drawer that blocked the door . Th has was on and food was in fumes. With my bruised fingers ( in an attempt to push my hand in through the gap of yeh door and the wall) gestured her and directed her how to get the drawer in so that I could push the door open. She was inside alone in her bedroom and I shouted my lungs out to call on her / she came howling scared but gathered hwrself and sis the act of bravery an saved me and hwrself from an impending disaster late at night around 9:30pm.
    I truly feel she is a true recipient of the Bravery Award , not because am her mother but for a child of that age to do what she did to take me and her out of the harrowing 20mina ordeal is not a small thing at all. Hence my note .
    Thanks for reading . So keep her in all of your blessings .
