This is so true. Often we're talked into doing things that we can't do, making us neglect the things we can. Good job.
I'm a cookies, not craft kind of person too. Nice job. I enjoyed the honesty of the character.

The first half of this really appealed to me, because I am very much like this woman, and her voice rang true--witty and wry.

The second half, with the conversation between the two woman, didn't seem quite as realistic--maybe just some revision of the dialog to make it sound more casual.

Love the ending of this, and the wise message that we each have an important contribution to make.

I really got into your character at the beginning through her monologue, but after that the dialogue seemed forced. Great lesson here, however, that we need to serve where our gifts are. Thanks for sharing!
