When Hillary Scott and the Scott Family came out with their song "Thy Will," it really hit home for me. I have lost two children: one at 17 months due to a genetic condition she was born with and one at 21 weeks when we made the difficult decision to terminate the pregnancy due to a massive heart defect.
As you can imagine, those were some dark years. I have since been blessed with a perfect, healthy boy and have worked through a lot of my grief, but I still find so much comfort in this song.
When I posted about my story on her Facebook page, I was contacted by her team and received a key. In some of my darkest times, it has helped me to hold it and read the words as well as her note.
I have come very far in my journey to process through my grief, and I often wondered who I would pass the key on to. I recently found out a friend from high school (we are 20 years out) has been battling an aggressive breast cancer. She has two small daughters and is understandably scared to leave them behind. She is hopeful she has 10 years with her current treatment plan and prays for new discoveries within that time.
I know she has been struggling with her faith, and I just knew that this was the person my key was meant for.
