My friend Jan sent me this beautiful coin at a time when I needed it most. She didn't even know, but when I received it, I had been being bullied by a woman in my
co-op. After many sleepless nights, with my mind trying to defend myself for things I didn't do, I was a mess.
The coin helped me feel connected to this valued friend. It helped me decide to quit the co-op. I'm doing fine now, so felt it was time to pass this love and strength on to my dear friend and sister-in-law, Brenda. The place she worked at for over 20 years has been sold, and her position eliminated. She is finding that looking for a new job at 55 isn't easy. I hope this coin helps her find the perfect job.
During her 92 years, my mom seldom missed an opportunity to be kind to others. Additionally, she was an avid gardener and butterfly fanatic so the Butterfly Coin project is a perfect tribute to her life and to those who also believe in random (or not so random) acts of kindness.
Today as I watch butterflies flutter among my own garden, I begin the release of the twenty Butterfly Coins I purchased in her honor.
This one is going to my friend who transforms ocean items into beautiful pieces of art. I sent her a box of seashells recently collected from a nearby Florida beach to be blended in with her Maine ones. Patti exemplifies the notion that an act of kindness can change the world.
DO GOOD & FLY (Flutter) ON!
