I received my giving key on August 27, 2014. I wore it every single day. It was a daily reminder that I was a journey to find my strength and the anticipation of what was to come when I did!

I was sitting with a teacher that had recently lost a baby. Our amazing staff had rallied behind her and this was her first day coming back to work. She is such an amazing woman and I was in a deep conversation with her talking about nothing! But smiling at her optimistic way that she can motivate anyone to do just about anything! We started talking about the inevitable...how she was handling things at home. The joyous, dedicated, passionate teacher immediately turned into the hurt, hopeless, weak mother. It was at that moment that God said....GO. I touched my giving key, took off the necklace and handed it over. As I explained the purpose of the giving key, we both began to cry!
I can't really put into words the feeling that I had when I realized that I no longer needed my key...that I had successfully unlocked the strength that I was searching for.
I know that this awesome teacher will, too, find the strength that she is searching for. And when she does, I hope that she will be able to have the same feeling when she passes it onto to someone else!
