Sherry, the story is outstanding by itself but the way you told it, your empathy for the mother, made it extraordinary — she became a hero in my eyes because your painted her as one. What a strong woman of conviction! People always advertise their faith but she honestly lived it. Thank you for sharing this with us. I feel like I am a better person for having read it.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
