The incredible team from Community Regional Medical Center's 5th floor ICU certainly does double duty around here! They are the perfect example of passion at work.

Since we broke ground on Terry’s House in early 2010, our very own Community employees have embraced this place as their own. They not only contributed to the building of the project, but still today continue to help buy supplies and regularly volunteer to cook a meal for our guests. A few have even held fundraisers among the social and civic groups they belong to!

As you can imagine, we learn A LOT about families when they stay with us for any given amount of time. Some choose to share more, others less. It has been neat to watch over the past several months as each of our staff here makes special connections with particular families. For whatever reason (maybe it’s as simple as schedule), we tend to meet those in need of our personal compassion at just the right time, for all the right reasons. I call it divine placement; others may deem it something else.

Today is bittersweet.

Our very first house guest, Yvonne Frear, her mother-in-law Rosie and I just carried the last of their seven months worth of suitcases out to the yellow cab. They are on their way to the airport, with Philip in tow and headed home to Texas!!! It is amazing how much we’ve gotten to know Yvonne, her family, their friends and their story in what felt to me like the shortest seven months of my life… but what was probably the longest seven months of theirs.
