My daughter gifted me a key with the word Courage. I am a member of the "sandwich" generation mothering my children, caring for my elderly parents and 95 year old aunt. I work with special needs children as an eduational assistant and evenings as a health coach. My life is very busy, overly emotional and can be very draining but I am very fortunate to have all these beautiful people in my life. It does tend to get overwhelming. The courage key was a little "push" encouragement to keep going... to dig deep to find patience, compassion and understanding when my well had run dry.
Molly my daughter who gave me the key, saw my struggle, understands my role and gifted me the key to help me through my busy days. Molly has always had a dream to become a teacher. She completed her education, became a supply teacher and recently had an interview to become a teacher on the long term list. This was a BIG interview one that would move her career forward.
I gave her the courage key for her interview. She wore it under her sweater close to her heart. AND she made the list!! I don't know where the key will go from Molly but it served me well and I still remember the courage it gave me in trying times!
Thank you Molly xo Love mom xo
