A beautiful story. Well-written, flows nicely from past to present. Holds a lesson for all of us. Outstanding creation.
This was very well-written, but I had a little trouble seeing the connection between a great-grandmother and a woman who's being cheated on by her husband. Maybe it was because I thought the dying man meant eternal life. Either way, I thought it was very interesting. Thank you. :)
This is a very touching story and one I really need to listen to. There's many times lately that i feel like I'm just waiting to die. I'm going to start praying for the courage to try and learn to live again.

I agree that this doesn't flow as smoothly as it could. But I was pleased by the ending. You had plenty of show rather than tell to express the wife's worries over his possible infidelity while the dress and the Chanel conjured up a compelling image with which to end

Choosing life is always a conscious decision. I would have like to know more about the second woman.
Congratulations for placing in the top 15 of your level and in the top 40 overall.
