This is such a beautiful story. I'm actually fighting tears. Well done. I hope the judges see what I see- a winner.
This is beautiful. I sensed that the wife was dying immediately and it set the tone of the love felt in the story. It gave me goosebumps.

There were a few tiny editing errors, a missing question mark or comma, chemotherapy and driveway are one words.

But the message of the story comes screaming through loud and clear. It is so important to slow down and take the holidays with your loved ones. This story really touched me and reminded me to live for today. I needed that message right now and I can't thank you enough for giving it to me.

Oh my, what a tear jerker! I was overwhelmed reading this...my husband and I recently lost two dear friends to cancer, so it hit home.

Good message to appreciate each moment we have while we are here on earth.

Thank you for bringing home a powerful message, and loving story.

God Bless~

A masterful job of building your story and setting the scene and the mood. I know I felt, saw and heard just what you wanted to convey in this story and that takes skill that is beyond all but a lucky few. Thanks for sharing.

A sweet, well-written story!
Now I'm in a dilemma because I've already said I hope another story is the winner, and now I hope this one is! Very well done!
