I love this story. It is so sweet in the grandmother is the quintessential grandmother, much like my own. This story just me back to my childhood and the things my grandmother taught me. You did a fabulous job of creating pictures for me. I truly enjoyed the story from the beginning to the very end. I also like how the story came full circle.

The farmhouse, drawing water from the well, pulling veggies from a garden, the kitchen stove, the "rickety screen door"...oh, let me stop... As I read your story, I relived my time as a child visiting my Aunt in the "country."

Great story, a well-deserved
win!!

I have two grandmothers who's memories were invoked while reading this delightful story. The cucumber salad, the lack of running water in the house, the hot house without the air conditioning, the wood stove in the corner, the time shared between grandmother and granddaughter, even if the time was spent in working together.

Beautiful memories for me were brought to mind as I read this.

Thank you for the details in this story that brought it alive for many of us in relationship to our grandmothers.
