Oh Steve this piece captured your Mom's essence! Both Jim and I enjoyed it and Jim recalls the incident too, only both of you have different recollections of it. He recalls Michael getting in trouble for wearing his hair too long and NO belt. Who knows maybe he did wear a tie for a belt? Sounds so much like your Mom. We miss her too. You wouldn't believe the many times I think of her.

Oh, wow. What a powerful story. It actually gave me goose bumps. Good for you, that you internalized this miraculous life lesson and let it impact your views on lending a helping hand to others in need. Very, very nice.

You really got to me with this one, Steven. What a beautiful and loving tribute to your mom. Made me cry. I loved the part where she visits the principal. I could see it so plainly. Excellent! Elizabeth

Steven: Another EXCELLENT WRITE!!! (Smile). This story reminded me of when I was about 10, in troublng times children can, surely, have creative minds. I had lost one parent, and was soon to loose the second, they died very young. Yet, I remember getting a comfort out of telling the kids at school, that I was going to visit the King and Queen, on top of the hill. There was this golden building in perfect view from our school grounds. I must says, I never met a King (only Jesus, the King of Kings) and I never met a Queen either. The building was actually the Mormon Temple, yet, what an absolutely creative mind we have as children (smile). In His Greatest Love, Sis "D" A Servant of the Most High God.

Steven, this story is absolutely beautiful. I love the small, telling details you have chosen to describe your mother--the stained blouse, the dough rolled in her delicate hands. She sounds like she was a wonderful person. The world needs more like her. I enjoyed this very much.

Oh now I get what you meant about the Dollar Store! So far I have read all but one. Pretty good writing and I mean it too! LOL One of the things I do is critiques and the only ones I can find about your work is that you need to use proper punctuation and paragraphs to enhance the ease of reading and you need MORE material. The stories end just when they are getting good. I did especially like the one about your Mom. I honestly think they speak volumes about you and your life. I also joined this site, no competition, just thought I might try it for awhile.

I find your research fasinating and your article most interesting. I'm also intrigued by your observations and deductions--especially the energies, which I too believe are there. :) Elizabeth
