Nearly two weeks ago after coming home from work, a trip to the mailbox revealed a special gift. Neatly wrapped and lovingly packaged a simple shiny stone with the word COURAGE engraved in it melted my heart. Monica, thank you so much for this very special gift! I mean it girl, thank you. The stone rests by a candle on my night stand and it is one of the first things I look at each morning. The note which accompanied it, containing the words: ” IT TAKES COURAGE TO HAVE HOPE – WORDS UNKNOWN”, is perched above my bed on a shelf. It is a peaceful sight to see these items in my bedroom. My bedroom is a place where I have often sat in tears when thinking of my babies, and it’s nice to have a comforting reminder that I am not as isolated as I feel.
Monica, this is definitely one of the kinder things that anyone has done for me. The simplicity and the genuiness of your sentiment does not escape me. I will NEVER forget your act of kindness. Thank you for having the courage to stand by others in their sadness in spite of your own.
I am so very touched.
