The humility shines through in this one. Having children is the most important, heartbreaking and joyful experience. Praises for the words of wisdom to the child. Great ending with humility before the Lord.
Thank you so much for the comment. : ) This is my first entry for any writing of this type - most of my writing is just letters to say, "hi". I greatly appreciate your taking the time to let me know this reached you in some way.
This was really good. I enjoyed it a lot. I could sense the tension (I'm not quite sure that's the correct word) the mother was feelings.

Just a little "FYI" You really aren't supposed to comment on your own story, at least not until after the winners are announced. This way, if a judge would accidentally see the comments, it remains anonymous. Don't worry about it though. It's your first time. :)

GREAT first entry. Come join us on the boards for "hinting" (Usually some time on Monday) where you can lave a hint about which entry is yours to get more comments. :)
I think this is exceptional for a first entry. You used a few conversation tags, but not always, which is good. The child acted boldly wrong and the mother boldly right, so you pretty well covered the topic with both. Good job!
