This coin was given to Maria, a friend and former neighbor, on Mother's Day to wrap up Hope Days 2019. I visited her and Alon at their new home and brought them a blueberry muffin cake to celebrate Mother's Day with their whole family in town.

They were both with me when I got the first phone call alerting me to the fact that my sister might be sick, trying to offer reassurance. And they were there at her funeral. You are such good friends!

Maria is such an amazing caregiver to her own Mother, ensuring she gets expert care! Even when Maria was undergoing her own surgery. She is so dedicated to her momma!

This coin's journey can now begin!
