I'm a very compassionate person, and being sentimental means a lot to me; it makes my heart smile. I'm always excited to hear from people about the things they choose to hold onto because they remind them of something significant or it comes from a different time in their life. It's a chance to learn more about that person in a different light. Below, on this heart shaped door accent, is a "hand" button which holds sentimental value and an interesting story.
I've had this button for over 11 years.
I never knew when I'd need it but with Valentine's Day coming up,
I decided to put it to use. Over 12 years ago I held a job of which I tell people, outside of being a mom, was the best job I'll ever have! I was honored/blessed with the experience of holding a personal assistant position to a radio talk show personality, with a very large following, Dr. Laura Schelssinger, yes "the" Dr. Laura.
During my 2 year's with her, she embarked on the hobby of Beading. While shopping for exotic beads one weekend, this hand button stood out to me. So, seeing that buttons weren't apart of her current hobby, I decided to purchase the button myself.
And here, 11 years later, I've finally used it. (wink, some form of hoarding is ok)
I like it because it symbolizes your hand is on my heart. I've decided to hang it on the interior garage door that we frequent throughout the day. It's a great reminder to those passing through, you have my/our hand on your heart.
Remember those that have passed through, often, they've passed through for a reason.
PS: Due to a confidentiality agreement I signed, I'm not at liberty to speak about anything specific regarding her or my time with her but I can tell you...she's a wonderful women, that's misunderstood and does amazing things for people.
