Darn the Tears

My grandmother looks up slowly from her work with a large smile and invites me closer. It is so good to be with her again.

She sits on the ground and is sewing a blanket — darning the tears that have appeared between each of the colors.

“Will be good as new!” she says with an excited chuckle. “Please wear it? That’s what it’s for … and bring it back when it needs mending again?”

This is my journey
