This is like a "physician, heal thyself" moment — what a great twist you gave the story at the end. Joy is unquenchable, but happiness IS a choice. Good work.
I think God answered TWO prayers with that "misdirected" call! A good story with a neat twist at the end.
Love those "coincidences", you know? This came across as very real. Vivid writing!
Whoa ... what a great ending... and such a God moment.. I loved it!
Wow! What an intense piece! Excellent! Loved the truth you brought out in this.
I love the happy ending for both women. Nice job.
Congratulations on making the EC list. This is a very powerful and moving story. A well deserved win!
It really can be so hard to choose happiness in the middle of difficult times and loved ones who don't seem to care enough. I like that she really began to "get" her mother's message when she focused on helping someone else. Congratulations on a well-deserved win!
