Thanks for your beautiful story of sacrificial love.
Abundant love comes from little faces. Thanks for the reminder.
Beautiful story. You spun this sensitively and tenderly. Very moving.
Very nice!
I devoured every single word. I felt it. This was wonderful. Thanks for reminding me what is important in life. Bless you!
Wonderful story. Abundance comes in shapes and sizes we don't always recognize. Beautifully done.
This is wonderful! I enjoyed it very much. Congratulations!
Congratulations! A deeply moving vignette, and beautifully crafted. The dialogue was so real I felt right at home at the table. And the mother's POV is gently understated, leaving the reader to garner all the more emotional impact. An absolute treasure of a piece!
There is something special in this story. Self sacrifice for another is very rare. I have done this same thing for my children when food had run low. I have seen them sacrifice for a friend who had no money or food to eat. I was so proud of them. Your story touched my heart.
Now that I've dried my tears I am able to tell you how emotionally moved my soul is after reading your story. I saw my own mother at that table, the only difference was there were only myself and my sister with her. God's abundant love gave her a wonderful husband in the end and a man whom I now call Dad.

Congratulations on your well deserved win Folakemi.

Congratulations on your EC win! A heartfelt story, abundance indeed.
