I didn't get it the first read - then went back to see her husband's name and then I got the message...and it brought tears. Great job of writing.

Oh, I love this. It is very touching. I love the line about her giving her child life as long as she is able. I want to read more now! Great job.

What a unique take on the topic of 'lifeguard'! This is beautifully written. As you know, good friends went through exactly the same thing a year ago (although the dad wasn't a lifeguard)so it particularly hit home.

So very, VERY vivid and moving and heartbreaking! I cried for this one - and I don't shed tears here easily. Wonderful storytelling.

Now, this had me choked up. Very well done. I do believe women guard the lives of their children in this way. You made the subject jump off the page so beautifully. Bless you for sharing your gift with us. Now I know your real name, friend.:-)
