Emily’s wealth was more than the dollars she had in her bank account. Her richness was measured by the love she had to spread and by how much she gave others. Over the years, she had touched so many people and made such a difference in people’s lives, just like had Sarah made in hers.
In Emily’s Haven, Sarah witnessed what Emily was all about and what a profound character and unique woman she was. Emily was a shining light for those who could only see darkness, and she was a rescue for so many who were looking to be saved.
There It Was
And then, Emily stopped."You can open your eyes now," Emily said. Sarah was excited and nervous and didn't know what to expect. Sarah opened her eyes, and for a moment, she felt dizzy and couldn't see properly. And there it was. The tall building with transparent glass walls. They walked inside and came across a welcoming sign that read Emily's Haven.
For a moment there, Sarah didn't understand what was going on. Emily couldn't help herself from laughing and they both looked at one another with dazzled eyes. Emily explained that after being rescued by Sarah and then again by the shelter she found, she knew that if she ever got a large amount of money, she would build a place that could save others. Emily wanted to provide a secure haven for those in need, and when she won the lottery, she knew it was the right thing to do.
It Was Perfect
Sarah and Emily walked hand in hand through the building's corridors, taking in all the warmth and love that surrounded them. Curious eyes followed them, and the two were exploring everything that was going on. Everyone around stared at the two, paying Emily great respect.
This was much more than a shelter for homeless people. It was a community center that helped others get back on their feet and gave them a glimpse of hope to help them get out there and make something in their life. It was all of Emily's hopes and dreams nestled within a building's walls.
“I have one more surprise for you,” Emily said. The story was not over yet. "For me?" Sarah replied. She had no idea what Emily was up to and what could possibly be the surprise she was hiding from her. She was still overwhelmed by the fact that with her generosity and the $30 she gave Emily, she managed to go all that way and create such a different world for so many people.
Emily led Sarah to another room in the building. It was a beautifully decorated space, with soft pastel-colored walls and a sense of calmness and tranquility. On the wall, it read, “Sarah’s Corner of Hope."
Sarah couldn't help herself, and the tears began to flow. It was too much to take in in one day and was the least of her expectations. Emily explained that she felt she had to dedicate one corner of the building to her lifesaver as her generosity and warm heart got all of this going.
"Sarah's Corner" was a corner of hope and of making dreams come true, but most of all, it was a reminder that even the smallest donation and even the smallest gesture can go a long way and make a great impact on so many people's lives.
