I loved this story! I could just see Gretel--the wonderfully forgetful yet wise old saint with her fuzzy bedroom slippers. Beautiful, vivid descriptions of all the characters--especially the homeless man and the little girl. Great dialogue, too. I could just see them and hear them--everyone in this story came alive for me, as though I were there.

Terrific message about the wisdom and compassion of God that can bloom in even those the world would consider "confused."

Intriguing title, too. Great job!

Simply wonderful! I love the spunk of this precious old lady with her fuzzy slippers. And I love the message that an impaired mind isn't indicative of an impaired soul. Thanks for making my day with this beautiful story.

Ditto, everything from the previous reviewers, not sure if the lines were necessary though. This one is definitely a winner.
