Enjoyed being reminded of a meaningful quote: "The Christian life is a series of new beginnings."
Very sweet story of overcoming that which seems unbearable, and once more feeling joy.
Out of all I've read yet (and that is most of the entries) your's is the first to bring tears to my eyes. Take this with a grain of salt as I am only a beginner, but I believe this would be just or more effective if you stopped after "...I love you, Phillip." Skipping the rest and only using then the last line, "Jill inhaled deeply and found that the precious fragrance could not have been sweeter." I believe the reader will naturally know of her new found hope and desire to go on. As I said, you're in advanced and I am a lowly beginner, but I've been a reader all my life. :) I think your piece is excellent!
Touches many cords of the heart. Thank you for this meaningful essay.
