I was so excited when I finally got my key in the mail; I think the whole concept of it is so moving. I ordered the key with the phrase HOPE on it for several reasons. I was going through a really hard time in my life and I wanted to be able to move beyond everything… Hope for a better tomorrow, a better situation, and realize things may not be as bad as they seem. I wore the key around my neck every single day for two months until I came across someone that I felt needed more hope in their life than I did. I debated giving the key up so soon because of how much it meant to me but I realized the whole concept of the key is to pay it forward to someone that needs it. A family friend of mines son passed away and I gave it to his father to bring hope into his life when he needed it most. The funny thing is I was so upset to give up the key so soon that I didn’t realize that exact day I no longer needed the key. Someone came into my life when I least expected it and brought more hope than a key could ever have… my boyfriend. Every day that I am with him I am reminded of how lucky I am and grateful that he has brought so much happiness into my life.
HOPE never abandons you; you abandon it.
