I enjoyed reading this account of your life, and especially like the way you open with the dialogue--the argument with your daughter.
Am wondering what the talk about dogs and horses had to do with your grandpa in the nursing home. Maybe this could be elaborated on.

Interesting account. I agree with the above, the dogs, horses, and grandpa seemed out of place unless you discuss why grandpa was interested in those things.

I really like the structure of this piece--the frame of the dialog with your daughter, and the flashback which takes up most of the story. Well put-together.
Good job. Your story held my interest all the way through.

Such a sweet love story! Thanks for putting it out there for all of us to enjoy.

It was fun reading how love comes to you when you least expect it. I know it's true.

My three children are now grown, 33, 28, and 26, but they all, as they became Christians, began to look for someone with an eye toward the future. They refused to date anyone recreationally, not wanting to lead them on and go nowhere.

It's as true today as it was, no doubt, in our great grandparents' day: beware of the company you keep.
