Things of My Very Own

A 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that helps children in crisis.

This morning, at just shy of 8 am, a simple task evolved into a profound encounter. A member of our team began the routine chore of returning non-emergency phone calls. This task is often unremarkable. However, this morning, one call unfolded into a story of love, loss, and the unexpected warmth of human connection.

The initial caller's heart was filled with love and grief. Her husband of 58 years had recently passed, and now that love had nowhere to go. The love the couple shared was immense. It was a testament to a lifetime together. The caller was looking to give, but in turn, she received support. The two strangers talked for about 20 minutes as if they were old friends meeting for the first time. An understanding of love, loss, and grief marked their conversation.

This call highlighted the beauty of human empathy and the unexpected moments that can blossom into something truly remarkable. It reminded us that being a good friend doesn't require a history or pre-existing bonds. It simply requires the willingness to listen and connect with others as the unique individuals they are.

We imagine these two will speak again. Perhaps someday, they will even meet in person. For now, the moment shows us the bonds that can form when you look to give to others.

If you wonder about these bonds, ask our CEO how many calls she made during the last power outage. We are confident that if Bill, Maryann, Nancy, David, Barbara, or Thomas were ever cold, she would be there with blankets and firewood before they had a chance to look at the thermostat. At Things of My Very Own, when you give, you become a part of our family, too.
