    Very good...

    The author did a great job of letting the readers draw their own conclusions about what is important about life through each woman's relationship with their husbands. Makes you realize..what looks good isn't always the best! MitziD

    Good Read

    This short story is a reminder of how easy it is to look through the window of someone else's life and believe they have the perfect life. As friends and neighbors, a set of couples are able to see the contrasts in their relationships. What they aren't able to see is that what looks good on the surface isn't always the whole picture. The story allows readers to have a front yard view of the disaster that could happen if a person allows what glitters to convince them it's gold without further research.

    Eye of thebeholder

    This was short story but it was nice andbso very true, many people think the grass is greener on the other side but we have to learn to appreciate whaat we hage been blessed with. So many take the blessings they have for granted, not knowing what another goes through just to get the materialistic things of life. Good job at getting the point across Gail McFarland.
