A wonderful story of love and compassion. Nicely done.
This poor woman who gave her daughter such love and attention, but didn't seem to get the same in return.

I had to cry a few tears over this story.
Very descriptive and very moving, without lapsing into becoming mawkish.
Great story. You pulled me right in and made me feel connected to both characters. Really good flow. I’m not sure you need the paragraph, “I wondered to myself…” The story’s so strong with the rejoinder “Maybe I weren’t good ‘nough to ‘er…” and your last paragraph, which is excellent.

Either way, it’s a wonderful story. Well written!
My heart aches for forgotten parents in nursing homes. This story is filled with compassion that stirs the soul.
