Hope in hard times comes through very powerfully here. Well done.
Powerful tale of love and loss. Terrific ending.

I thought your dialogue was unnatural in this line: What did I do yesterday for this night's rest to fail me so?

I really liked this line though: My muscles ache as though they still labor to haul half-full barrels from the decrepit well.
Congratulations, Hannah, on winning 2nd place in the EC awards this week.

I can't imagine living life so far away from family and friends without a phone.
Well done on your placing. Great work.
This is a beautiful story that shows the deep love between a husband and wife, a mother and daughter, and God and his children. Great writing. Congratulations!
Congratulations, Hannah. Your EC place is well-deserved. Your story is tender and engaging and shows what a blessing the phone was to people far from their loved ones.
Darrell is my hero with his smile the midst of the trial.
Congratulations on your EC placing.
