This is a very real example of a time in life where confusion seems to take over. I felt Lainey's confusion through your story.

There were a few grammatical issues that are easily corrected. An additional pair of proofing eyes would probably catch that.

Good job with the topic. Her confusion about life was very evident.

Well told story including blessed advice. I'd like to email this to my niece's husband, who has just recently been left with five young children after the death of their mother. Thank you. This goes in my favorites.

p.s. But, I'll wait to email this until the author's name is attached (^-^)
Your title is an attention grabber, and very fitting for this heart-warming story. I like the advise included here as well. Nice job!

I'm proof positive that this advice works! After my husband died, I was told not to make major decisions for several months. Even though I didn't feel like my judgement was impaired, as I grew stronger and began to heal, I realized that I was indeed, not capable of making those kinds of decisions early on. Great story, and great advice!
