I don't even know what to call this.
Is it a key chain, key ring, key fob?
Since it never has, and probably won't ever have a key on it, I think I'll just describe it as a token gift from a few years back. When I look at it, it reminds me of the giver and the occasion- a graduation of students who were fortunate to spend four years living in a beautiful green (and sometimes very, very wet) valley. When my youngest headed off at too young an age, I had my doubts.
But once again, she proved me wrong.
Taking risks, heading off in a direction that simply feels right, can pay off in ways you haven't even dreamed of.
