Angel’s Embrace

August 12th, 2008

I have a little collection that I never expected to have, but hold so very dear.

A collection that marks the most important and treasured parts of my life.

A collection started by my thoughtful Mother-in-law, when Charming and I were first married…..

And she gave me this beautiful Willow Tree figure called “Together”.

“For those who have found their true partner in love and life”.

I immediately loved it and was grateful for her keen sensitivity in giving me a gift that so perfectly fit my character and desire to treasure my blessed marriage to her son.

And then, when I was pregnant with Bubbers, she gave me “Cherish”.

“Awaiting a miracle”.

I loved being pregnant and never wanted to forget what it was like to feel a new life moving within me.

This figure always reminds me of that.

And after Bubbers was born, my Mother-in-law gave me “Our Gift”.

“Our bright, joyful gift!”

I loved my little Bubbers with every ounce of my being and held him in such awe and respect.

This figure reminds me of what a priceless gift he is.

Then Charming surprised me after a business trip earlier this year by giving me “Angel of Remembrance”.

“Keeping treasured memories close”.

He said the description fit me perfectly and he knew I would love it.

And he was right.

Then yesterday, I bought “Angel’s Embrace”.

Because that’s where my lost child is.

In an Angel’s embrace.

Awaiting the day for a mother’s embrace.

I love this collection. There is always one that seems to represent what you want to say to some one or how you feel… They are the things we give our daughters for things that happen in their lives. They are really beautiful.

I have seen those before, and they are some of the few figurines I could see myself owning. They are even more treasured when someone else gives them to you. Those are great.
