This coin is being sent to my God-daughter, Rachel Dery. Another of the wonderful people in my life who demonstrates kindness as a way of being. She was always so thoughtful, kind, and loving to my husband, Dick, her God-father. Just yesterday at my home, I saw the rapt attention and care she gave to one of my ailing sisters-of-the-heart. Rachel is a world traveler so I can't wait to follow the coin to read the story of who she might gift it to, where, and why.

My son has been sharing all of his great friends with me since I moved to Saugatuck. One of them, Barbara, has been exceptionally kind and supportive as I negotiate changes in my life. I appreciate her so much and wanted her to have a Monarch coin to keep or to share. She will know what to do with it.

I gave my first coin to my Butterfly Lady, the expert I met in Saugatuck when she gave a Monarch presentation at our Douglas-Saugatuck Library. Hannah shares her knowledge, her time, plants from her beautiful garden, and takes time to tag the super generation prior to their migration. One day when my garden milkweed seemed almost over-run with Monarch caterpillars and I was afraid they would quickly be prey and not get to form their chrysalis, it took one call and she was at my house plucking them from the leaves to later have a healthy transformation from her protected area. It is with kindness that she mentors us and kids who have a courtyard garden at one of the local schools.

I am sharing my first coin with my son-in-law Tim. His legacy from his mom, Nancy, is a shining example of kindness. Tim is the epitome of this uplifting trait and all who know him become beneficiaries.
