Yellow

"Look at the stars, look how they shine for you, and everything you do. 
Do you know, you know I love you so, you know I love you so."

Yellow.

The color of happiness and joy, warmth and optimism, sunshine and stars. When my grandmother was younger, she knitted hundreds of sweaters - for her kids, her grandkids, and her friends. I still have sweaters from when I was a little girl that she made for me, and I refuse to let them go because of their sentiment. I hope to one day pass them on to my own kids and tell them that their great grandmother knit them many years ago and I wore them myself when I was a little girl. My mother also received a number of sweaters from my grandmother, and a few of those have end up in my possession like this yellow one. I put this sweater on the other day because I was thinking of my grandma. I still think of her often and the light and warmth that she brought into all of our lives. In her 90+ years on this earth, she brought all of us so much joy and happiness...she was our color yellow.

Besos,
