Here it is, the third chapter of my new story. It’s called Unimaginable Treasure. Please know, that I will never judge anyone from holding on certain things. So there’s no need to feel embarrassed about it. We are all humans, and we are doing our best. I am not one to judge or express shame among anyone. Please feel free to provide me with any feedback. I will be posting a chapter every Wednesday. Although I am a bit late with posting this week. I apologize for that I was just thinking about what I should write next. I can’t wait to start writing chapter three of this story. I hope you like it.

After Ben had dropped Sophie off at her house from donating their winter accessories to the homeless people. She walked up to her room, and realized that her room was too cluttered, despite giving away some of her things. She came to the realization that she was just like her Grandma, Mary. She had kept things that she no longer needed to keep. She didn’t need to hold on to three of her Grandma’s tea collection to hold on to her memories of her Grandma. She only needed to keep one set. She decided to keep the rose set, which is the collection her Grandma used whenever she visited her.
Sophie knew that Lisa admired the blue porcelain set, so she figured she would give that to her the next time she saw her. As for the teddy bear collection. She figured a little girl would be able to make memories with her grandma, the same way Sophie has memories of her Grandma.
Sophie later learned that she didn’t need to keep a bunch of Grandma’s belongings to remind herself of Mary. Sophie knew that her Grandma lived in her heart.
She became inspired that she had asked if her parents can help her declutter their whole house. She even called her cousin and asked if they go through their house, donating various items.
She has been encouraging her friends to participate in their school’s donation drive. A few days she had talked it over with her principal, Mr. Johnson, if she can be in charge of the donations. She was planning on giving them to various shelters. Shelters that helped the homeless, men and women who have recently left abusive relationships and didn’t have much of anything since they left in a hurry. Depending on how many people, she would donate some things to thrift and second hand stores.
Mr. Johnson said she could make an announcement on the P.A. system during their morning announcement on Monday. She was so excited that she had began writing her speech.
Meanwhile Lisa is asking her mom if there are any duplicate items in their kitchen. Her mom then joins her with donating some of the things she no longer uses. Lisa’s mom is very proud of Sophie for organizing this event to help others.
Ben is in the garage with his Dad and he is asking if there are any items that they no longer need anymore.
Monday morning rolls around. Sophie is in the principal’s office with her cue cards waiting for her turn to speak during the morning announcements. When it comes her turn, she clears her throat, and grabs the micrphone.
“Hey there, everyone. My name is Sophie and I’m in the twelfth grade. I have decided that this is the perfect time for us to go through our belongings. Carefully examining if we still use these items, if we have duplicates of them, if they genuinely add happiness to our lives. And whatever we no longer use can be brought in to be donated. There will be a few boxes in front of the principal office which is where we will place our donations. You can donate anything to clothes, kitchen ware, books, games, and any hygiene products. I will then organize everything, and send them to various locations such as shelters that will help out homeless people, people who have left abusive relationships and don’t have much. There’s no better time than right now, since the weather is getting colder, and there are so many people that are in need. We can add some cheer to people’s hearts. We will be accepting donations until next Friday. Thank you so much. Have a great day!” Sophie explained, as she handed the microphone back to the principal.
Sophie was very eager to partake in this challenge. She hoped that everyone donated at least 10 items. She figured she would be spend an hour after school with her friends organizing everything. But as long as she was with her friends, she didn’t seem to mind. She also loved the idea of being able to help others. From a young age, Sophie enjoyed helping others.
