Nicely done.
I enjoyed the stepping stones for "milestones" in the family's life. Very creative.

I really loved your story particularly the use of stepping stones and the garden to recreate memories.
I was instantly reminded of a favorite quote: "God has given us memories that we might have roses in December"

This was a great story. I loved the idea of the stepping stones. I would imagine that there are a lot of stepping stones in their garden.

This was a beautiful story that engaged me into the life of your MC as she did her memory walk. Ending on a happy note with news of a new grandchild coming, maybe there's a sequel in mind. Great job and very fitting for the topic.

What a lovely family tradition. I can imagine the comfort that those stones can impart to an aching heart. Congratulations on your second place win.
