Bloom

Like our friendship... vibrant and ever-constant

    “Calla lilies are a fresh surprise – uplifting in shape; invigorating in color. I wanted to express their vibrancy with a gradation of color that builds, starting as limey green, morphing to beautiful coral, tinged with wine. And calla lilies also have a long blooming season… So the qualities of this flower represent supportive, constant friendship. The kind of friend who stays by our side, lifting our spirits through the best and the worst.”

    Bloom

    Submitted by Lucy in USA, July 2017

    If you're alone, I'll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I'll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I'll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I'll be your smile... But anytime you need a friend, I'll just be me

    Submitted by Jack in Germany, July 2017

    When we first talked to each other I knew we would always be friends. Our friendship has kept on growing And I'll be here for you to the end. You listen when I have a problem And help dry the tears from my face. You take away my sorrow And put happiness in its place. We can't forget the fun we've had Laughing 'til our faces turn blue. Talking of things only we find funny People think we're insane-If they only knew! I guess this is my way of saying thanks For catching me when I fall. Thanks once again for being such a good friend And being here with me through it all.

    A stranger stabs you in the front; a friend stabs you in the back; a boyfriend stabs you in the heart, but best friends only poke each other with straws.

    Bloom

    Submitted by Randi Kellogg in Idaho, October 2016

    My current favorite is Bloom- truly I love them all. My husband and I are currently serving a mission for our church. Several weeks after arriving at our assigned destination (Alberta) I was feeling homesick - missing my children and grand children and feeling very uncertain about where we were and the work we were doing. One day in a local gift shop I saw "Bloom" sitting on a nearby shelf. It seemed to speak to me and after leaving the store I could not get it out of my mind. However, I mistakenly thought the piece was titled "Blessings" which was a very appropriate reminder to me at the time, the flowers in the bouquet representing the many everyday and special blessings we receive in our lives and often overlook or simply take for granted. A few weeks later my husband gave me the figurine for my birthday. But when I looked at the title on the figurine it said "Bloom" not "Blessings" as I had thought, but a quote immediately came to mind: "Bloom where you're planted." Months later in another gift shop miles away I noticed a sign bearing the French proverb: "Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace.: For me this is a very appropriate sentiment for the figurine "Bloom" and one i continue to remember each time I look at it sitting on my kitchen window sill - ".... bloom with grace" . And I'm trying to do just that.

    I ordered 3 Bloom beauties for myself, my sister and our sister of the heart. We are meeting in Nashville to celebrate two of us turning 70 - me and my sister of the heart. Even though my sister is a youngster at 62 she is included in all. The 3 of us best buddies. The last special journey we all went to Peru when MaryLou and I turned 60. Bloom says "Like our friendship, vibrant and ever constant. What a great visual reminder for us all to have this beauty in our possession.

    Bloom

    Submitted by Stacy Wyatt in Indianapolis, Indiana, July 2016

    I received my Bloom sculpture for my 31st birthday this past Sunday from my best friend. My story is one of the sob ones, so I won't go too far into it but I was bullied a lot in school. I see the news now-a-days and we have kids taking their own lives due to the bullying. Back then, I could understand why they would go that far. I had people that I thought were my friends only turn around and turn on me...completely shun me...then make up stories about me that, as you well know, spread like wildfire around a school. This went on all the way through high school. Mind you, I did not go to the same school for 3 years in a row until high school where i spent all 4 years in the same place where the bullying was the worse. I met my best friend, Cathi, in 2009 where she was a leader of a Christian retreat. I was in a very dark place then and ended up talking to her about it in 2010. She wanted to be my friend but, for understandable reasons, I kept her at arm's length. I didn't want to get hurt again...I thought i was destined to spend my life friendless. She didn't give up on me. She was, and still is, honest with me about everything! She is there for me no matter if I want her to be or not, and she knows me better than I know myself. I can count on her to be the one constant in my ever-changing life. She is the first friend that has not left me. She has taught me the true meaning of friendship. This Bloom figure will always be dear to my heart. It reminds me that ours is a friendship to be engraved in stone because it IS vibrant and ever-constant. This is one friendship I can count on...always.

    I bought this sweet figure for a new friend very recently diagnosed with leukemia. I haven't known her long, but thought that this would be a sweet reminder of how much of an impact she makes on people around her and that she is loved. Regardless if we've been friends for a lifetime or not, I felt this was the perfect item to get.

    Submitted by Lisa Cannella in West Chester PA, January 2015

    I got this figure for Christmas from a dear woman who has become my godmother...someone who has seen me through the most challenging time of my life. I was blessed to meet her 8 years ago at Christmas time when I met her by meeting my former partner in Baltimore MD. My godmother's name is Nancy, and she has seen me through a difficult relationship and break-up and also through the passing away of my own mother in 2013. This figure's description says it represents "supportive, constant friendship, the kind of friend who stays by our side, lifting our spirits through the best and the worst.” Nancy my dear godmother has been just that...I don't know what I would have done without her. So this figure represents an abiding presence that has always been there for me. This figure now is on display in my bedroom and will always remind me just how much one person's love and kindness can make a difference in someone's life. I love you Nancy! Lisa

    I just bought Bloom for my Pastor's wife:) She is a very special friend who has loved me and supported me through some very difficult times. Our friendship began with me reaching out to her in a difficult time. She showed Christ's love and carried me back into the arms of Jesus. When I saw Bloom, I knew it was for her!!

    My Mother was in ICU where no flowers were allowed. My sister bought her a piece in the gift shop. It was so beautiful and such a lasting piece that as other family members came, they too went down and got Mom a piece. I chose Bloom because I have always had bangs and those lillies bloom by my Mothers front door, I have always loved the color of them. So Bloom spoke to me.

    A couple of years ago, my friend mentioned to me that she loved these Willow Tree pieces. After reading the description of the pieces for "friendship" I can't help but feel very comforted and reassured that good friends are something to cherish. I just ordered "Bloom", but I feel like I can buy my friend every single one! I hope she likes it!
