Wow! is this a true story? Either way, very cool!
I loved this one, especially the remark about "Back to work, Purple Boy." Too funny, only to set us up for the bear twist. Great balance and pace to this. :)

Wow ... that's about all I can say......

Your choice of words - magnificent.

The story - beautiful. (True??? I wonder......)

Masterful writing indeed.
I can just imagine the backgound call of the bird...so melodic. Have you ever read "Blueberries for Sal" - a classic children's book about a mother and child who encounter a bear while picking blueberries?

I don't think I've noticed this author, until now, for some reason. But, the ending to this beautiful story brought a sob to my throat. What touching insights! I'm glad you're a winner!

Thank you for a great read and an excellent reminder that God can protect us using the smallest of things.
I would like to add my congratulations to the long list before me. Very well written, Ann. I loved your description of everything, the sweet talk between mother and child and the excellent way of carrying us, as your readers. From start to end, this was great. And for the record, I agree that God uses the voice of His feathery creations to sing to us His delight. Oh, and I loved the idea that the absence of song was a warning. I sense that there is something very deep in that thought... Again, congrats on winning first!
