Mother, daughter team, Colette and Kaitlin of LaFete Weddings host an annual Christmas Tea in their home. While we have come to know each other through our business relationships, our friendship has become much deeper. They always design a gorgeous table for all of us to enjoy. Each year all the girls share our stories of good and difficult times we’ve experienced throughout the year.
This year Colette and Kaitlin had the clever idea of using a Giving Key on each of the place cards. Each guest had a different word inscribed on her key. We sat down at our place and they asked us why we thought we were given that word on our key. My key said inspire. I was speechless. Which is saying a lot for me. The other keys had the words, fearless, grace, love, dreamer, and faith. As each of us stumbled on why we were honored with the words we were given, each gal at the table quickly joined in to say why they thought the word described the person to which it was given.
It was an emotional evening. We all left the table with full hearts, and intentions to wear our keys until the time comes to share the key with someone else that either needs to feel the word on the key, or deserves the word on the key.
The story behind the making of the keys is glorious. A great gift. www.thegivingkeys.com.
