“Why don’t you sell all these showpieces? As it is, we are struggling with our lives. This is the least you can do.”

Laura, the youngest member of the Davis family loved making small showpieces out of crystals from the time she was a teenager. Though they weren’t really well off, Nick, her father always ensured that his daughter had all the tools to keep her hobby going.

      Thanks Madhu :). Nice to kno you liked it.

      Welcome to my blog :D. Your story is really beautiful :).

  3. Life is never the same. Well written post.

  4. It’s so touching and how life can crash. At times, tough to come to terms with something we cared and was our livelihood. You poured the emotions so well.
