He Went From Being On Top Of The World To Losing Everything He Had
Having went through a pretty traumatic marriage for 21 years, I was one of those people who never really wanted to let anyone else close to me to keep myself safe. A few months I became friends with someone who, I knew immediately, would end up being very special to me. He has 3 children and lost his wife, who was the love of his life, unexpected and suddenly at a young age and was left to be a single dad. He had always owned his own business and worked out of town so his life was turned upside down. Like many dealing with grief, you do the best you can and hope it's good enough. He went from being on top of the world to losing everything he had. Getting to know him and watching him thrive has been such a blessing to me. He works hard everyday to provide for his children but also starts over every day healing his heart. When I seen the giving key that said STRENGTH, I had to get it for him to let him know that someone out there notices what he does every day and admires the strength he has to take his situation and, instead of being selfish and letting it shut him down, he uses it to overcome the obstacles and provide a life for him and his children. This past Christmas his only son came in from boot camp to meet his baby. It brought tears to my eyes to see him pass this giving key to his son and tell what it means. So much that I have ordered another key but this time BLESSING, because he is such a dear blessing in mine and everyone's life he touches.
