    Heart and Soul

    Submitted by Mary Sue in USA, October 2016

    Heart and Soul is my most meaningful piece for me. One of my co-workers gave this to me when she decided to retire and move back to NH to be with her aging Mother and the rest of her family. We didn't start out being such great friends when I started working with her but over time we became "Sister's". When one of us was having a bad day at work we could talk with each other or give each a hug. We aren't biological sisters but sisters through Heart and Soul. We are many miles apart but still able to communicate and when one of us is down / having a stressful day or just need a good laugh we pick up the phone or chat on Facebook messenger. I Love Willow tree angels but "Heart and Soul" will always be my favorite.

    Heart and Soul

    Submitted by Nancy Burke in Rochester, NY, October 2016

    My collection is priceless to me as each one tells a story within my life.Some make me smile,while others bring tears to my eyes as I remember moments in time. I hold each of them dear to my heart knowing who gave them to me and why. The Heart and Soul figure however holds a spot in my heart that is unique. I received this from my dearest friend, Shawn, who has become more of a sister to me, the year my life seemed to be falling apart. I was going through a divorce, having to navigate living alone, " sharing" my two children throughout the week, mising every other holiday time with them and learning to depend on myself as the only adult. I was scared to death & a mess. She gave me this and told me she would always " be there" no matter what for me. That I really wasn't alone, and that I was much stronger than I was giving myself a chance to be. Nearly 18 years later, she and I have sat with one another exactly like this figurine looks, ' figuring out life' and supporting each other through the difficult times & celebrating the wondrous ones. This dear woman is truly a part of my heart and soul. I could never have known when she handed me this beautiful Willowtree Angel figure, I would not only treasure it, but also be forever reminded what friendship, hope , strength and how beautiful this woman is to me.

    Heart and Soul

    Submitted by Dew in Iran, August 2016

    Today I bought my 8-year friends a Heart and Soul statue for their graduation because it represents the love I have for them and to also show them how proud of them I am but also with the hope that maybe I would be able to forgive myself. We all went to college together. back in high school I was the top student in my class. I got into a very good university but I was so lost when I got to university ,so insecure with low self confidence that couldn't give my 100 percent and the very first semester I failed in 4 courses. I couldn't believe that has happened to me. I panicked. I was so scared that I changed my major to economics, telling everybody I hated the previous one which was not true. I did not give myself even enough time to realize that. I am still at top of my class in economics but I can not forgive myself. Now everybody is graduating in engineering and me remaining with one more semester to go in a major that I don't even know if I like and 4 years of regret. I feel like I can not breathe, like there is a pain in my heart that is not gonna ever go away. I want to be happy for my friends but it is hard to avoid the feeling of being left behind.like everybody else is somehow ahead of me and I am stuck. I hope by making my friends happy, this pain in my heart would get just a little bit lighter.

    Heart and Soul

    Submitted by Jocelyn Waynick in Ashland City, TN, August 2016

    I met my best friend, Corinne, on the first day of school the year we started 7th grade. We were both starting at a new school. We were friends through high school, and were in each other's weddings. I have two sons, she has one daughter. With our new families, and living and working in different cities, we didn't get to see each other a lot. But we always wrote our "annual letter" in a Christmas card each year, to keep up with what was happening in each other's lives. In July of 2016, my sons and their wives planned a surprise 60th birthday party for me. They contacted Corinne through Facebook, so she was there for my "surprise!" She brought me the "Heart and Soul" Willow Tree piece; she said it reminded her of us, when we were girls and shared our thoughts and dreams with each other. It sits on my mantle, along with another Willow Tree piece I have (Quietly), to remind me of my "forever friend". Our friendship has endured almost 48 years!

    Janet and I have been friends for over 20 years. She has encourged me always. I went back to school to become a Funeral Director at age 40. It was not always easy, but having Janet as a friend cheering me, encourging me, and telling me not to give up. I recieved my Bachelor of Science degree in 2015. She gave me this piece at my graduation and it says everything about our friendship, and my desire to become a Funeral Director.

    Heart and Soul

    Submitted by Linda in Pittsburgh PA, December 2015

    I received this as a gift from my coworkers as I was leaving for another position in my company. My job had been to assist working parents to advance in their working liives. When I had applied for the position two years earlier, it had been made clear to me that I was not their idea of the ideal candidate. Despite their reservations I was given a chance and began two of the most personally and professionally rewarding years of my life. Leaving was hard. On the day my boss handed me Heart And Soul and told me how much the parents on my case load were going to miss me, I was touched beyond description. I will always treasure this beautiful piece as a reminder of my time there and the respect I earned.

    Submitted by Kate Murphy in Bellingham, Washington, August 2014

    My dear, sweet friend, Kathy gave this to me for my 59th birthday. We grew up together from about the age of 8/9. Our backyards met. We were joined at the hip. Spent our summer vacations with each others families. We somehow followed different pathways after high school. And lost each other. Thankfully, social media has some redeeming qualities, and she found me via Facebook about 5 yrs ago. A few months ago we planned for her to come visit me in Washington, she's in Arizona. It was wonderful! It's as if no time passed, it was not uncomfortable, or awkward. If there's a bond there, the saying about the fact real friends can go ages without seeing or speaking, and it's ok-- is true! Only I don't think we will ever let this happen again. I'm going to see her and her family in a couple months. I'm a single mom, of a 19 yr old son, my parents are gone. So it's just the two of us. I can't put into words what it all means to have her back in my life. Anyway, when she arrived for her weekend visit, she had some adorable treats for my birthday. But when she gave me this Heart & Soul figurine, I just know it meant the same thing to us both. I love it! I will treasure it forever. I am now searching for another one of your figurines that I can bring to her, when I visit. What a endearing tradition this could be the start of!

    My sister, Polly, gave me this piece a few years ago. She said it reminded her of the two of us sitting up late at night in our gowns sharing secrets, memories, troubles....everything. It is one of my most prized possessions, because it reminds me of her.

    Submitted by Shannon Z in Endicott, NY, December 2013

    This piece was a Christmas gift from my "soul mate" friend Lisa. We have been friends only since Feb of 2012 but I firmly believe God brought us together as perfect puzzle pieces. We are indeed two halves to a whole. We are not the type of friends who "sugar coat" anything. We are both straight forword with one another. We tick each other off sometimes but the strength in our friendship is that we both know EVERYONE disagrees and just because we have different ideas or tastes does NOT mean we should be mad at the other person, we don't dislike the person just their idea. That, to me is what makes a perfect friendship. Love ya Lisa-piez!

    Submitted by Debra in Roebuck, SC, September 2013

    I fell in love with Willow Tree years ago and have purchased many to give as gifts to special people in my life. I have especially loved the "couple" ones and have given several to my husband on anniversaries (basically for me). But the reason I bought this one is a little different. I have been talking thru various life issues with the same very special therapist for about 20 years. She has suddenly decided to retire and this seemed perfect for her. As I told her, she has taught me to look into my heart for answers to give strength to my soul in our talks.

    My sister had just gotten into the "Inspire" phase, and she was buying these figurines left, right, and center. I snooped around on the Willow Tree website after she was on it, and immediately fell in love with Wisdom. I swear, she looks like me. My best friend's birthday is coming up, and I felt that this was the right piece, as we've been friends for years.

    Submitted by Hayley in California, August 2012

    My story began with Wisdom. I fell in love with Willow Tree and fawned over the figurines in our local gift shop. My favorites list grew and grew and I am beginning a collection. I now have Heart and Soul, Love of Learning and Friendship added to my Wisdom piece. I hope to acquire them for as long as I can. They give me peace and joy just to gaze at one. Thank you, Susan, for your beautiful creations.

    I was looking for something to give to my very close friend and when I saw these two figures talking. I knew it was for her, because no matter what the topic is I know my friend will listen and give me the best advice. I can count on her to be there.

    Submitted by Zette in NC, April 2011

    I was introduced to Willow Tree today in a shop in Smithfield, NC. When I came across this piece I knew I had to have it. I lost my sister in January 2011, and when I looked at the two sitting there together as if they were chatting,I was reminded of what I miss the most. The sentimental value of Heart and Soul will become the anchor for my new Willow Tree collection. Thank you.

    My best friend and I saw this figure in a store and we both exclaimed, " IT's US!!!" We look like both of them and our sitting stances look like the way we sit. She gave the figure to me for Christmas and I am giving it to her for her birthday :)

    Submitted by Jean in VA, January 2011

    Recently a friend had her 56th birthday, and this figurine spoke to me about a friendship we had for 50 years. We met in 1st grade. Actually it is three of us, and we have been best friends since then. We three went out for dinner and I gave my friend this figurine. As soon as she opened it my other friend blurted out "where am I" since it was only two girlfriends. So on her 56th birthday I bought her the same one. Needless to say my birthday was last and they bought me the same so now we know no matter where we are or what we are doing we are always in touch, Heart and Soul...

    Submitted by Hannah in Ireland, November 2010

    I was about 10 when I met Ellie. At first I thought she was loud and annoying, but thats only because she never actually talked to me before. But then we had this really long talk about boys and our first crushes. We seemed the same in a way. I realized later when we became insperable that we were the same. When we were about 18 she got cancer. She was rushed to the hospital one morning at 6 o'clock when she got really sick. She was then sent to a more classified hospital an hour away. I couldn't bear the sight of her lying in bed with pain all over her. I saw this figurine in a near by shop and thought of her. When were meant to be going to the formal that year, I did go but she was in hospital recovering. I never realized how important friendship was until that happened. I was completly heart broken. That was about 15 years ago, but we are still best of friends. I don't know what I would do without my Ellie... xxxxxx

    Submitted by Carly in Wisconsin, February 2010

    I love this angel figure because it pictures friendship perfectly. A good friend of mine gave it to me for graduation last year and i could immediately see the faces even though they are not there. I have known this friend for about two years now, and our relationship has grown so much! I just love this figure because of what it means to me.
