Courage To Keep Moving

My name is Mary and I'm an alcoholic.

By the grace of a higher power I have acquired 10 years of continuous sobriety. I was gifted a COURAGE key.

Recently, my coworker and his wife delivered a stillborn daughter. There were no problems during the pregnancy. This was a complete shock to everyone. They are broken. I passed my key along to his wife. I can't imagine her pain and grief and all while still taking care of 2 children under the age of 4.

My hope is that, by embracing her key, she and he will have the courage to keep moving: courage to just get out of bed in the morning, courage to walk through their grief, courage to believe that there is a divine plan in all of this even though they can't see it.

Maybe, by holding this key, embracing this word, and focusing on it's purpose, they'll have the courage to walk through this storm.
