Excellent descriptive writing. I could see the daughter trying on the hats and the mother watching. I wasn't expecting the ending. Very touching story.

Just delightful. Great sense of place and voice.
I liked the comment about missing the comfortable company of your adult daughter child. Also, your daughters fun-loving spirit and courage comes through loud and strong. I like the way you gradually let the reader in on where the special "hat" shop was that offered free hats.
The line that grabbed most me was at the end: Love shared. Faith strong. And hats ready.
