I LOVE YOUR MOM! Let me be the first to say, "Well done!" Your mom gave you some great material. She was everything I strive to be: she was blessed to be a blessing. I can tell you that there probably was no one happier than her, either, because that's how God works. You can't outgive him. You were so fortunate to live under that example. It was brilliant how you used that beginning shock factor hook to hook us in immediately and use the contrast to display your mom's excellent qualities. You've done a wonderful job! Thank you for sharing this woman with us. May her example live on in all of us.

What a wonderful tribute to your mother. She sounds like a wonderful lady. Great job!

Terrific story! You have a knack for hooking in the reader with the way your story begins. We need more Moms like yours these days. Sadly, there are too many like the abusive one you described. What a wonderful testimony your Mom had...one that will continue to live on. There is one thing I am confused about...my husband says that his mother made the perfect apple pie!
