A lovely memory which is being passed on to a younger generation. Hard working hands, folded in prayer and in blessing. That is something that is rare in our day.

Your description of your grandmother was so vivid. She must have been a wonderful example to all those she came in contact with.
A well told, well written true to life story.
A lovely picture of time gone by and also various uses of 'fold'. Well done.
This is a beautiful testimony. I think you did a wonderful job. It brought tears to my eyes. Since I'm guessing this is a true story, I wanted to encourage you to consider making it a creative nonfiction story by adding dialog and body language. Though you may not remember exact words or facial expressions, if you stay true to your character, adding these things will pull your reader in even more. I especially enjoyed the ending. It came full circle. I believe your family will treasure this for generations. Congratulations on ranking 3rd in your level and 16 overall. Happy Dance!
