This coin is being handed off to our favorite neighbor on her fiftieth birthday, a small token to show our appreciation and recognition of the depth of her compassion and kindness. It had been a hell of a last year for her, and the new decade – both hers and the world's – will surely provide a new opportunity to grow forward and upward with the wisdom and sagacity of half a lifetime behind her. Because she provides so much luft to everyone around her, may the transfer of this coin generate a gentle breeze to return that momentum.
I received this coin, along with four others, from my wife and best friend, a paradigm of thoughtfulness and generosity. She bought dozens to give out to folks and I was honored to start off with a handful. Can't wait to send this coin on its way to the next bearer and see what ground it breaks (or mends) along the road!
On the last day of 2018 I gave this coin and four others to my wonderful husband, the kindest person I have ever known. I look forward to reading about its journey!
