Awww...this touched my heart and gripped it strongly.
Beautifully written and told. Thanks. God Bless~
AMAZING!!!!! I loved this. You did a great job with everything and it is very well written. I loved the ending... it brought a huge smile to my face. :)

God Bless!
So cute and so like a little kid to give up his prized possession for his mommy. Loved the misunderstanding of the holding a tune. Well done!
You had this reader from the beginning of your story to the end. I learned a lot re showing through your fantastic imagination and with your descriptive writing. This was a delight for me to read from start to finish! Excellent writing.
What a delightful read! I can only echo what others have said. Priceless story and well-written piece. You rock!
This is truly delightful in every way. I was right there in the room with your characters. You brought them to life with your descriptive words, not too many, just enough. You were spot on topic and it flowed beautifully from beginning to end. I hope this entry does well and I think it will. Great stuff!
What a sweet, sweet story! I loved that little Myson! :) You did well with his dialogue and characterization! Great story with a lovely ending!
I really enjoyed your sweet story. The characters are well painted and ring true. Kids can be such a joy at times of grief and, in their own way, can break through, as Myson did, bringing laughter at the end.
Shann, I know you did this story last year, as a matter of fact it was for the same word that my son Matt won 2nd place for the beginner's level. This story had it all! Even the absolutely fun and original name of Myson. I could just picture the little fellow which isn't always easy for me to do with stories. You had me from the first word. I was intrigued with how sensitive he was to his mom and wanting to find a way to make her feel better. It also reminded me of times where I have been down and Matt would let me have one of his special mugs for a beverage I was having at a meal time. This story tugged at the heart strings and was so easy to identify with. You made the characters seem real, like we knew them. I am excited about reading more of your work. I hope you get an e-mail from Faith writer's about this message being here for you. You are a very special person and writer. Thank you so much for your support. I count it a privilege to be getting to know you. Love and blessings, Alicia
Shann, even though I've already told you via e-mail this story so touched me I just had to leave a message here for all to see. This story needs to be in a children's bed time story book! I just fell in love with little Myson and his mommy. By the end of the story, I find myself wishing that they could both come to my house and sit a spell with that special cup and some cookies... Thanks for sharing this warm-hearted story. jerseygirl
