I am now going to rethink all family gatherings that center around a meal!! But aren't they all like this? Well, not the circumstances but just clinging to that one thread of tradition to hold everything together even when everything is falling apart. This was so well written, I had to go get a tissue. So very well written. As usual!!!
Wonderful! I loved the almost cinematic quality, with the narrator almost in voiceover, introducing the characters that populate her life. And the ending made me catch my breath--stunning.
I've just discovered that it's possible to laugh and cry at the same time. Your story touches the deepest parts of the human soul - where hope always resides.

Thanks for sharing, and God bless,

This is an entry one reads but doesn't forget.

Beautiful on all levels ... just beautiful.
Just excellent - the description is so vivid and authentic. I feel like I really know these women. Loved the last line too. (And I think I know who this is!)
