Good characterization! It is so difficult when our parents are growing older to know what is best, but not as difficult as when they are gone!
This story hit close to home for me, as my sister and I had to wrestle with the same issues with our own mother. Great job of helping us feel what your MC felt and thought. My mom, also, gleaned a lot of her purpose & significance in life from being a great cook, except she made fried apricot pies. Precious story!
Excellent...and the first part of the story made me very hungry!

May God bless!

I love the content here, but I felt like the execution got a little choppy. Sometimes that word limit is killer. Great characters created here, I just wish we might have connected a little more with them. As a granddaughter of two people with Alzheimer's who recently moved out of my parents' house and into assisted living, the conflict felt real.
