A sweet story. I especially loved the phrase "this gloaming of the glory." How beautiful is that. That made it for me.

I felt as if I was eavesdropping on your MC's tender reflections. Good job.
Your story is touching. I like the images of the "grandparent" roses, and the bee stings.

You gave us a taste of the MC's self. Jim, when you write, you condense the telling into such a rich, dense, packed story where nothing is fluff and everything is special. Such a joy to read.

Yet another "lovely moment in life" by you, our favorite wordsmith troubadour. Good job, Jim.
