“As long as I live” is a Cherokee woman woven out of commercial basket reed and commercial dye. She represents the women in our lives. The grandmas, the mamas, aunts, sisters, and daughters. I will love and comfort you… as long as I live. I will guide you and show you tough love when it’s needed… as long as I live. I will be here for you anytime you need me… as long as I live. I will pray for you every chance I get… as long as I live.
