Many readers will be able to identify with this story and its message. This sweet story was right on topic and flowed nicely.
You hit the topic dead-on with your wonderful analogy--much to remember here.
I love the way you bridged across two generations to express their specific blend of anticipation and frustration. Well done
Really good and such a great message.
Wonderful title and I love the relationship and conversation between these two. I sometimes wish we could pull down the darkness too.
On topic and a very serene feel to the mc's period of life. The title/little girl's wish was cute.
a story that definitely tugs on the heart strings. I like the way that the little girl is oblivious to what is going through her grandmother's mind. This makes the contrast even more effective.
You're one great writer! Your title, your opening line, the development of your story, the dialogue of the two characters and your ending are things I hope to learn to apply in my own amateurish writing.

Besides all that, the story is touching and on target. Again, thanks for writing.
