    Hi everyone! I’m new here. Here’s a little something I jotted down after losing my mom recently. I am not a professional writer but have always loved expressing my thoughts on paper and am interested in improving my skills so any feedback is welcome 🙂 thank you!

    <p>Oh, Chana, this is so heartfelt, so poignant… Your mom sounds like she was a really special person. Hashem should comfort you and your family, and you should continue to make her proud!</p>

      <p>Thanks for posting. I couldn’t open it either.</p><p>It was really, really beautiful. HaMakom yenachem eschem b’soch she’ar aveilei Tziyon VeYerushalayim and may you continue to draw on all this love as you create your own version, after 120.<br></p>

    <p> Hi Chana!</p><p>With a poem like that, you’re about anything as professional as a writer can get. The small specific details you included like the flaky-topped brownies followed by the gut-wrenching admission of ‘me lying to her that she’ll get better soon‘ created an incredible reading experience for me. I also appreciated that the poem wasn’t lengthy. The way you arranged your words and sentences was novel as well. Looking foward to more of your stuff!<br></p>

      Thank you for your feedback! I wrote it from my heart and was hoping it conveys the right feelings when read by someone who didn’t know her.

    <p>Chana, this is beautiful. So poignant. Such vivid imagery.</p><p>When I sat shiva, someone told me that one reason we say HaMakom Yenacheim is that we need Hashem to be menacheim; no mere mortal can even attempt it.</p><p>HaMakom Yenacheim eschem b’soch she’ar aveilei Tzion Virushalayim.</p><p>Love,</p><p>Brocha</p>

    I’m itching to read this too but for some reason it’s not downloading for me either. Would you mind sending it again?

    Chana that’s so beautiful and special…My favorite line was “Of her telling me how beautiful I look, when my mask slips off.”
