This was a lovely story. Your love for your mother shines through your words.
What a sweet, touching story. I trust your mom will soon come to trust the Lord. Yes, I am praying!

You need to tighten up your writing (I still have a LONG way to go on this!)

In the first paragraph, here is an example of what I'm talking about -

"A small, grey-haired and almost toothless lady lay on her bed...She managed to get up, open the window wide, and smiled at me, 'Let me have a good look at you...'"

Keep those Challenge entries coming. It has taken me a long time to follow this advise!

God bless!
This was a tender story but some of the language seems a little off, not sure exactly the word. And I thought when you used the word "kid" it was not in keeping with the rest of the language.
Quite lovely. Try to avoid passive verbs. 'was pounding' is passive, 'pounded' is stronger. Good job!
Your entry is lovely to read and quite touching.

The advice you have been given already I agree with. Keep writing.

The challenges will help you and don't forget the lessons in the forums.
