This was written so well that I read it through twice. Your voice speaks for so many who look back on their life, the choices they made, and know for certain the map they chose was God's plan all along. Your writing is crisp but detailed and descriptive. I loved it !
Reflecting on our lives often makes us appreciate what we have. You did this in an entertaining and easy to read way. Kudos. I like your life better than the other lady's, by the way.

Flows really well, nicely structured. We never would have known the name was changed if you hadn't said something - now I'm dying to know!!! Gee, thanks! :)

I loved the comparison of the two lives and the appreciation of the MC in the end.

I really enjoyed and appreciated this story. Our lives don't always follow our 'plans' and happiness doesn't always come through plans. I like the message you are giving here.
Just knowing from my previous job that one cannot plan out a day without something going wrong, I could never plan out my life! Enjoyed your story and it read so smoothly. I liked your triple comparisons of attraction.
You do a fine job of juxtaposing the two different ways each character went. I think God made us different for many reasons seen in your piece. There is a plan in it all and it can be hard when dreams don't come true, but I too wouldn't change my granddaughters for those dreams I entertained decades ago.

I have known people who had their whole life planned out and have often wondered how well that went for them, but never knew any of them well enough to find out.

This was well written and a great comparison between the two characters.

I liked the flow of this and the reflection on mapping out our lives or what happens when we don't. Really enjoyed the writing and message.
You did a great job of comparing two characters. I particularly enjoyed the conversational tone, the humor, and your showing how it's faith that makes a life truly significant.

There's a nice flow to this story, and it held my attention. I like that it was a different take on the topic, and it had a good message. Well done.
