Solpha(Memaw), my grandmother was a lot like the light you seek out when your lost and its too dark to figure out a way through. Right then, she could. She had the ability to make you feel you were safe and loved when it seemed like no one else could, nor did. I have so many good memories of her. (any one who had the chance to spend time with her would have❤) I remember that each times I felt hurt or angry I wanted to tell her all about it, needed to! It was the way she listened..it was like you were all that mattered. Even with all the chaos around us and all she had to do taking care of our full house, she would listen and hold me in a way that I felt so loved. She was a safe place, and a beautiful heart and I miss her dearly.
