Very interesting! I laughed out loud at the Grandma's bluntness.
I really enjoyed this! The grandma was a hoot -- the whole lesson is one that bears repeating time and again.

What a grandma! I really laughed in parts. Well written
I giggled in all the right places and oohhed and aahhed right along with your MC. Godd job, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Michele, I just have to say that I LOVE your ability to stretch yourself every week. You consistently wow me.

This one is beautiful, touching and absolutely emotionally fulfilling. Thank you.

This is absolutely beautiful. I think every young woman should read this. Such an awesome description of God's amazing creation of woman. Excellent writing.

This is a beautiful story, and so incredibly true. All of it is worth it--absolutely. Loved the feisty voice of the Grandma! Very well done.

Very touching, humorous and TRUE!! My favourite line was "Your twin fawns of a gazelle will truly be browsing among the lilies then, bebe-gurl." Song of Songs will never read quite the same again!

Loved the fantasy/dream-like quality of this and totally enjoyed the conversations with the grandmother. Beautiful message too.
loved your absolutely beautiful and amazingly creative story.
And, a thousand times, yes to the way you created this story. Fulfilling from beginning to end. Engaging the mind of a reader into the thoughts of your MC in a non obtrusive - almost enlightening - way. Not that the husband was a mind reader, but I see it didn't take him too long to catch on, either : )
