Wow - that was something like the movie Coal Miner's Daughter about Loretta Lynn! Great read, kept my interest start to finish! God bless!

Good job of packing a "lifespan" story into such a short word count! A great illustration about how important it is to forgive and mend relationships before our time is gone. Good job.

Very powerful story. I'm glad that it worked out for the couple, but sad that it cost the relationship with the parents. Well done.
Wonderfully told - you are a storyteller through and through!
Great job. Kept my attention the whole time. Loved the way they just decided to marry just like that. Loved the ending too.

Enjoyed your story. Parents don't realize how their actions can impact children long into adulthood. Your story illustrates this so well. I could feel the sting of tears and waves of remorse yet the loving wisdom of the child speaks volumes. Great writing.

Congratulations Theresa. A well written entry and perfect for the topic. Well done.
Oh, this is good! I know a family that has broken all apart, and the son and daughter that are estranged absolutely will not reconcile. What a heartbreak, their Dad now with the Lord, and their Mom just turned 92, sad, hurt and lonely.
So, I loved your story, and I loved the way it ended. Well written, too.

Thank you so much!
