When my daughter and I were shopping in a local boutique, she fell in love with the concept of The Giving Keys.
We are celebrating her 16th birthday this year so I went back to purchase the key necklace. I chose the key that says "BELIEVE" because turning 16 is such a milestone in a person's life and my daughter's beliefs will shape her future.
I gave her the BELIEVE necklace as well as the following poem:
Here is the key to a beautiful life full of wisdom, love, and happiness.
Believe in your heart, for the heart will lead you to love.
Believe in your faith, for God will always hold you in the palms of His hands.
Believe in your spirit, for your attitude will create opportunities and success.
Believe in your talents and use them to inspire others.
Believe in your friends for they know your secrets and desires.
Believe in your family, for they are always there for support and encouragement.
Believe in yourself for you are unique and special.
When times are troubled and you're feeling down, hold this key in your hand, close your eyes and say, "I believe, I believe, I believe."
Poem about the key necklace- When Kaleigh finds the right person, she will pass the key on to someone who needs to believe.
