About three month ago, my beautiful with a heart of gold gave me the HOPE key. I wore it everyday as I am fighting lupus and was going thru chemo at that time. but two weeks ago while at work I found out that a co~worker family member came to pick her up cause she need to go to the hospital and be with her Aunt she does not have much time. next day I was expecting her at work (now this is a girl that I NEVER spoken to.) so I just ask her to be polite "hows your Aunt" she said find then went to her classroom.
Then as I sat at the desk and reach for my neck and tough the key on my neck, In that very moment that i knew that she needed the key more then i did. I did not want to give it her cause the key meant so much to me and was given by someone that inspired me. i knew in my heart that i had to give it to her fighting back tears.
I called her into the office and ( first time i ever have a whole conversation with her) said that i dont know what is wrong with you Aunt but this hope necklace was giving to me and I think right now that you need it more then me. she was like ohh my god thank you so much we hug and cry. her Aunt had cancer all over her body and died early this week. but she is wearing the HOPE necklace. l LOVE GIVING BACK. I knew I made the right choice.
