I dreamed of the day that I would play with my grandchildren. There is so much that I want to share with them. Children are the hope of our future, and grandchildren are the blessings of our golden years. When I made this piece for the Sacred Threads Committee exhibit of 2017, I wasn’t a grandmother yet. I wondered if I would be Mimi or Nana or another dear name of their choosing. In 2018, my daughter, Sarah began dating a man with two children who immediately started calling me Mimi. In 2019, she gave birth to my first grandchild, Xavier Douglas. So now I’m Mimi to three darling children.
