Hope for the Both of Us
The first gift I ever gave my girlfriend was one of these keys. The word inscribed on it was hope. She was incredibly anxious about school, so I gave it to her the day before school started. She had talked about how much she had wanted one beforehand. When she saw the word, tears came to her eyes. Fast-forward exactly four months. My girlfriend and I are going through a rough situation outside of our control. Her birthday present to me was a male version of the key I gave her. With the word hope on it. So no, she did not technically give her key away to someone that needed it more, but exactly four months after she needed it most, she knew exactly what to get me, hope.
