I loved my giving key pendant. It was a constant reminder to me to slow things down, not to stress the small stuff or to feel overwhelmed by the daily stresses of life..."breathe". While I loved the concept of giving it away I never thought I would part with it. That was until Wednesday when a dear co-worker came into the office overwhelmed by a health diagnosis. While not terminal she was overwhelmed by the prognosis of managing type 2 diabetes. Since my son has type 1 I found myself consoling and counseling her and when I found myself telling her to "just breathe" I knew what I had to do...it gives me great joy to see her proudly wearing the pendant every day and I am a new believer searching for my next giving key.
