Awesome twist at the end....I was really afraid I was going to have to grab another box of kleenex. Thank goodness, I got to smile....well done.

I love the double meaning of the title! "Grace" is one of my favorite words.

The first sentence of the 2nd paragraph threw me for a bit; I thought it was Grace who had the lump. And although the ending was wonderful and miraculous, did it--a little bit--negate the proverb, by allowing Ana to have both the "bird in the hand" and the "two in the bush?"

Anyway, I was thrilled that she hadn't relapsed after all. Very sweet story.
Great ending! It caught me by surprise as I didn't know where your story was going. Well done!
I really enjoyed this touching story of leaving all birds in God's hands.
Generally, I like surprise endings, and I'm glad this one ended as it did, but I must say it wasn't very nice to let us think she had relapsed.
