Yes, I'm now a blubbering mess, too. This is very touching. I, too, have favourite childhood kitchen memories of my mum, who is thankfully still on this earth. Sometimes I long for those days again, but even more I pray that my kids would have wonderful memories of me in our kitchen. You did a lovely job with this story (which I would love to know, is it your story or fiction?). Well done.

Beautiful.

Wow this is a powerful story. I immediately felt a special connection with Mom. Though I think your friends were right that not many women whistle, I still think it was likely one of the loveliest sounds anyone heard when they walked into her kitchen. The ending was super strong. You did an outstanding job of bringing the story full-circle and left me with a bittersweet feeling.
