Digging Deep for My Own STRENGTH

Jan 2016. My brother Liam flew home from Paris. He was unwell. He was suffering from heart failure and had to have two life saving surgeries, including a heart transplant. My beautiful boss at the time, and dear friend Hayley gifted me STRENGTH. I wore my key often and held it in my hand during tough days.

6 months later, Liam fell ill. He fought hard on life support for almost a month. I often touched his forehead with my key. I wanted him to have all the strength I could muster.

24/08/16 - we said goodbye to our hero. What followed was a very dark time for me. I put my STRENGTH away and allowed myself to crumble, not caring how hard it would be to get back up. But then slowly, through digging deep for my own STRENGTH, receiving encouragement from loved ones and eventually asking for professional help, I began to see some light again.

It’s now that I see a loved one in need of my STRENGTH key. So I gift it to my beautiful cousin Megan. She is fighting a battle at the moment, that no mother should ever have to. I hope this key brings you STRENGTH. X
