Mmmm... Those jars of jelly. What a creative take on the topic. I like the way you keep bringing us back to them even as she writes her letter. Great stuff!

I thought this touching and sweet. The letter made me smile and it brought back memories of my own grandmother. I enjoyed this.

God Bless~

I'd love to visit this kitchen and see the sunlight shining through the jars of blackberry jelly. I'm sure this kitchen would smell like my Grandma's. Grandma's vernacular and the whole tone of the story fit perfectly together. I think all of us have missed a punctuation or a spelling word (you're in good company with the missing question mark) :) (and I'll share a secret, I do the sugar and vinegar combination in a lot of things too. :) )

Wow. The dialect is spot on, and I can still hear your MC's voice in my head. 'Nothing to say' turned into a beautifully written letter full of wisdom and love. Congrats - your EC is well deserved.
