Lots of emotion into here, with old memories and stories and feelings. I liked the example of it feeling like that Agatha Christie Novel, very well done! I liked the last paragraph best.
This may be my favorite article in this category. Wonderfully written, well chosen words touched my heart. I felt your pain and your hesitation as you grappled for the right response in an appropriate time within a "normal" conversation. This was an aawesome sentence: "All that remains is the history of having, and even that is fractured, incomplete, without the other storytellers". Powerful. Your description of "sisterly aloneness" was perfect, too. What I loved most was your last paragraph, which was a deeply moving prayer and cry out to Abba Father. Yes, indeed, you have brothers. More than you can count. Nicely done. Be blessed.
Oh my, such emotions! I have not lost a sibling and yet there were tears in my eyes to the reality that one day I will be where you are standing now. I loved the cadence of the piece, it flowed quite well with the raw emotions that were being felt by the author. I also enjoyed the hope that is given in the end. Well done! Congratulations.
Congratulations on your 1st place. The voice of this is very good. Nice job with the topic.
This was gorgeous and melancholy...I loved it. Congrats on your well deserved first place win. With writing such as this, you will be rising through the ranks quickly.
