I feel every word written. If there were any mistakes I couldn't see them; tears are blurring my vision. This is simply beautiful! Your mom was no ordinary hero she was and remains to be 'the wind beneath your wings.'
Boo HOO!! This was so sad but written so well! Very emotional piece - touched me especially since I have a daughter - ( and have never gotten back for another colonoscopy years over due) and really felt the strength this mom showed. What a legacy for the daughter to remember that during her own struggles! Good contrast from her past to her future.:)
Definitely honest and compelling! I love how you wove the past and present together - it gave a wonderful picture of a wonderful mother - and the influence she continues to have. Definitely touched my heart.
So touching - put tears in my eyes. What a wonderful tribute to a loving mother. Love this piece.
A very well written dramatic story. You involved me, got my emotions stirred up, and had me reading to the end. Excellent job. God bless.
This piece makes me cry! What a beautiful tribute to your mother, and what wonderful mothering she did, to produce someone like you, who can write with such depth and clarity.
Your hint was absolutely right--she was an extraordinary hero! Good job!
I loved your opening lines about mom showing up in the most unusual places. Great story.
A beautiful tribute. Two heros here, and really good writer! Bravo!
Way to go Ann!! So happy to see this place- it was so touching!
Way to go Ann. Congrats on your finish. Excellent job.
God bless.
Congratulations dear Ann! The first time you let me read your story I cried. I sit here agian wiping the tears away. Your mom's love will always be with you. She's everyones hero now:-)
