When I started reading your story, I thought you were describing my own Mom. Gentle, patient, loving, hard working. The sadness that follows is only too common today. Good story. Good job.
'Not outgoing but going out of her way' AWESOME! I lie this tale of Mama-I admire this Mama. Told very honestly whether the writers mama or not:)
great writing loved the way you topped and tailed it with the OUTGOING theme and the part in the middle was warm and engaging :-)
It is never an easy decision to uproot yourself and your children from an alcoholic household. I applaud this strong woman for being a real example of Christ's love and compassion.

Well written and engaging story.
I also liked the outgoing versus going out description. I'm sure this reflective reminiscence resonates with many daughters, especially as we consider our mothers in heaven.
Well written. Great content. It's one thing to write well, but to have a great story also... that makes you a winner :)

Keep writing:)
