DP Daily Prompt: From The Gut Post by Ranu
I am not exactly sure if I had the experience from crying to laughing. That being said,I remember one occasion my two year old,when she was that young, got lost at Dorval airport in Montreal. I was busy checking in the luggage.When I looked around,I saw my friend coming with my older daughter. I was told Anita was left with me. I was terrified at the thought of losing her.
I took four large steps back,looked around,on my left I saw my daughter running. She couldn’t find me,scared she kept on going forward. I sped up,before she could reach the escalator going down ,I caught her. It was the most frightening experience I ever had.I cannot remember whether I cried or laughed. I certainly was relieved!
Thank you for sharing this incident. It is indeed scary when we believe that a child is lost. I’m so happy that this story ended with you safely finding your daughter.
All good wishes,
Thank you Robert.I was not sure where to look for her.I was unaware of the time when she left my side.
Taking those four steps back was the best thing I did.When I started running to catch her,all the passengers’
focus was on me.Thank God I was able to catch her before she got to the escalator.
Best wishes to you.
Thank you Robert.
