I was just skimming through entries and found this gem--so real, so wonderful!
I agree with the above comment. A true gem, thank you for sharing this, as I can completely relate. May God give you grace.
Very skilful profile of the strain within the gentle perspective that's required when we're caring for someone who is unwittingly combining closeness with distance. Your title is perfect.
Your words were so visual, I could see exactly what was happening at all times. Loved the soap opera reference. Very funny. Well done.
Beautiful! Definitely one of the best in every way!
It almost seemed too real. I found myself remembering the last years of my grandparents lives. Good writing can often do that; it takes you home. Thanks.
This is such a touching story about a mother with Alzheimer's disease. It appeared from the way you wrote the story that you may have had first hand knowledge of the disease. This writing is a moving testimony to God's love
Your title drew me right in. The story is an apt description of life after memory has slipped away. Congratulations on your 3rd place EC award.
Another amazingly crafted story. Wow! Congrats, once again, Ann. Your talent leaves me in awe.
Beautifully written and most deserving of your EC, Ann. Your stories and poems always touch me and are always so well crafted, as is this one.
