Safe & Warm

Many years later while visiting my elderly grandmother, we were sorting thru some family photos, coming across a picture of the loving older woman that used to keep me safe when I was a child and cover me with a quilt to keep me warm, I asked my grandmother who this ancestor was. She told me that was her mother-in-law.my greatgrandmother and related the details of her life and then her passing in the upstairs room.

The very room in my childhood that drew me while sleepwalking, to safety and comfort.

I think my great grandmother came to take care of a little lost girl, made her safe and warm. I like to think she was my angel.

Perhaps, some day I will know for sure.
