Your title intrigued me, and your descriptive opening lines drew me into the nighttime scene with Abuelita.

I could relate to your teenage girl, because I always loved to hear stories about my grandmother's life, too.

You share an important message in your story!

A very pleasant read; most enjoyable! You should move up to level 2! Your illustration of a Bible lesson regarding forgiveness and love was warmly presented.

Oooh I loved this gentle, moving story. I never got to know my grandmother(s) but I have a granddaughter, and I cherish every minute of those precious one-on-one moments with her.

I especially liked the part “What I’m trying to tell you is that if you hold on to every horrible thing that you go through in life, you’re going to miss out on the blessings of the future", because it applies to something I am going through right now. You ministered to my heart, and I thank you.
