Thanks to the memory of my Grandmother, one of the most treasured people in my life, I know that my favorite color as a child was purple. Because of that my answer to the often asked, “What’s your favorite color?” question is always PURPLE. I love it. It makes my heart smile. It reminds me of my grandma. Her purple pants, that purple plant in her front window. I imagine myself as a youngster sitting at her kitchen table and coloring each page in the coloring book with a big purple crayon. All purple, nothing else.
It’s true, I did that. My grandma told me so – that’s how she knew purple was my favorite.
