Loved this! Esther is such a real character, I could feel the emotion and depth in this piece. So sad that she never did share her grandest dream, but glad that the MC discovered it in the end.

Mother's are wonderful things--great reminder in this!
Great, Great story. I cherished "your" loving review of your mother. What a Blessing of a daughter "you" are! Your mother sure had her priorities straight with her love for God and her daughter.

This touched me deeply in so many ways. I give you an A ++ :)
Thank God for Kleenex. I keep them in business especially with article of your caliber. Great job and thank you for sharing such a tender story.
You mother may not have been a celebrated writer, but she was a writer nonetheless. Being a writer is something inate, something that bubbles up from within. In a way, I think your mother's dream came true. She poured out poems of her greatest gift...having you as a daughter. What a beautiful tribute!
