Awww. What a tender and poignant story. Excellent writing.

I'm guessing that this isn't the first time you've taken to pen and paper.

Nicely done.

God bless~

What a touching well told story. Your story telling skills are well developed.

I enjoyed reading this. Thanks for sharing.
A well written story with an un-anticipated ending.

Either "smooth" or "soothe" would work OK. Just make the sentence flow.

What would it be like if we all started writing our "wills" from a historical view of our life dedicated to our children and grandchildren?

This was an easy to read story with the unexpected ending.

As an admirer of rocking chairs and the bonding with my children and grandchildren when rocking them, I was touched!

I agree with other commenters; that was a touching story! I was totally not expecting the ending!

I got a little mixed up in the sentences that were long with few commas. Could be just me though.

I liked the way you crafted in the main character's history. I have a fondness for "old-timey-ish" stories.
Congratulations for ranking 2nd in your level and 20 overall! The highest rankings can be found on the message boards.
A beautiful, moving evocative piece. I would enjoy more of your work!

Congratulations!
