An Unintended Pay It Forward Story

The key that I had bought was "dream". I'm from Texas and I bought the key while I was in Colorado for a volleyball tournament. When I first bought it I had no idea who I was going to give the key to. I had a friend that I had just recently met that was asking me about it, I explained what it meant and he thought it was so neat. He is about to graduate high school and I realized he was meant to have it. One night I was at the sand volleyball courts with a lot of people from our school. I didn't want to play with it on so I took it off and put it on top of my shoe not thinking that anyone would take it. I was wrong, someone took the key.

So, I honestly don't know who has it but I hope they needed it more.

Even though I was extremely upset, I realized that the person who's hands it is in is where it's supposed to be.

  • Just received my Dream Key today, I work as a
    Hairdresser for a assisted living seniors home. As I was heading towards the Beauty Salon at my place of work, I saw a familiar face.
    I very rarly see Maryanne, you see she is one of the seniors daughters who had come from Winnipeg to visit with her mother. I guess you could say we befriended each other. I stopped to welcome her lovely smiling face, she than asked, “how my family was doing?” Well, it turned into a long conversation regarding my daughter who has been struggling with a lot for a very long time. Later in the afternoon she came to me with the Dream Key she asked if I’d ever heard of it? I haven’t heard of this key before, she then said, “Linda Dream of whatever it is you need for you or whoever.” Then suggested for me to read about it online, which brought me to this web site. Of course I have a very strong belief in God so to me this is a gift.
    My Dream, from this key is simple. It is for my daughter for her
    peace, joy, love, well been, most importantly the Love For Her own Life. I do dream she will Love herself as she is so deserving of her own Love. I am so grateful for the Dream Key.
    I just really wanted to share the Gift of the Dream Key and how it has already affected me and how I’m using this gift.

    Linda on
