You've done a great job of creating mystery with your first paragraphs. I love how you skillfully wove this story… it took me a bit to see who you were describing. Then I wanted to go back are reread the hints (“Not much in either of our families has happened the way we expected, has it?” she said.") I love the ending with Mary and Elizabeth not completely understanding, but willing to trust God. Beautiful work on this!
I love the last paragraph... could apply to any of us! Yet the possibility that the mothers of Jesus and John thought the same thoughts as me is very cool. A very insightful story.
Very good, not sure if paragraph four was needed though.
Congratulations on your win. This was a wonderful piece. I liked the intrigue and mystery it held until the ending. Well done!
Wow, well done! I hadn't figured it out until shortly before you mentioned the "camel's hair."
