You have spun an engaging tale, and can make an even greater impression on the reader with some additional time in editing.
A good entry. Be sure to proof read carefully. Example: "God's since of humor" should be "God's sense of humor." The story idea was great.
Enjoyable story with a satisfying ending. Great message, too.

A strong first entry.

Telling this in more of a story-teling story, with more dialogue and faster pacing, would improve the style.

Thanks for this glimpse into a life-changing event in your childhood!

I really like how from tragedy can come humor. That's an important lesson we should all remember. Thanks for reminding us of that.
