Love is patient, love is kind

    "Patience is about inner reflection, peace and calm. Her coloring is very soft, very quiet. I wanted the viewer to feel the weight of her leaning on her hands. To feel the passage of time—when everything stops—to be in the present.

    "It's a reminder to take a moment to breathe."

    Patience

    Submitted by Stephanie Webb in AR, February 2017

    My husband and I will be married 3 years in March. We used your cake topper at our wedding, and have bought a new one each year to represent the stages of our marriage. We have "You and Me" and "Together". We also have a 5 year old son, and have been through quite a few life changes over our 7 year relationship. This year, he joined the army, two weeks before finding out that I am having our second child. He's been gone since week 7, and I won't get to be with him again until a couple months after she is born. I'm realizing the thing that captures this stage of our marriage the most is patience. Patience with each other, patience with my still young son, and patience for being apart. These are beautiful pieces that I hope to be able to collect for the rest of my life.

    Patience

    Submitted by Pam Kutz in Coldwater, KS, October 2016

    Hi! The Angel of Patience Willow Tree means the most to me, because my mother-in-law, Ida Jones, gave it to me in 2014. She taught me what it means & takes to be the best Patient, loving & caring mother-in-law ever. She was my mother-in-law for 18 glorious years. She treated me like her own daughter instead of a daughter-in-law. When my husband, David and I, relocated from Garden City, KS to Coldwater, my mother-in-law moved in with us, as she could no longer take care of herself. She had dementia, so from September 3, 2014 to her passing on May 12, 2016, I took care of her full time every day. We would spend hours & hours visiting about her life as a child and her marriage to her husband John. She would tell me about her pregnancy with my husband, what he was like as a child and the various jobs she worked at during her lifetime. I cherish those talks that we had & I miss her every single day. Before her dementia got too bad, we would go for drives and end up in her hometown of Sawyer, KS which is about 50 miles NE of of Coldwater. She showed me the house that she lived in as a young girl and the home that she lived in when she was in High School. She also told & taught me that Patience is everything in this world. She had so very much patience with me & I with her, when her dementia really started to get the best of her. I never, in all the years I knew her, saw her mad. She was so sweet and didn't know a stranger. I will always cherish my Angel of Patience and remember my Ida when I see it sitting in my curio cabinet with the rest of my Willow Tree Angels.I just hope that I can be the mother-in-law to my daughter-in-law Haley, that Ida was to me.

    Patience

    Submitted by Victoria in Franklin VA, October 2016

    I have been dating my best friend Nathan since May 9th 2015 on August 27th 2016 he asked me to marry him. One week later his family and I took him to college almost 1000 miles away. I have anxiety disorder and him being gone is so hard. The first two weeks all i did was cry my eyes out. I have grown a lot closer to the Lord since he has been gone. Trust and patience plays a big role in our long distance relationship. We will be getting married May 27th 2017. I have been counting down these days since he left. The Patience piece I think fits perfectly for me as I am waiting patiently for my prince charming to come home to me<3

    My favorite piece is called Patience. I am from Barbados and it was given to me by a Consultant from Canada who I assisted while here on a project. It was an unexpected thank you gift and greatly appreciated as I love Angels and collected them. This was my introduction to Willow Tree products and I am totally hooked.

    Patience

    Submitted by Allison in Bozeman, MT, October 2016

    "Patience" is by far my favorite you have designed! My husband and I have been trying for over 5 years to have children. What I love most about this figurine is the position the women is sitting in and her pain that seems to be etched in the base. Patience involves pain...at least it has in my story. Eight miscarriages later and we are still waiting. Though I cannot say I have always waited with patience. We named our 1st baby "Patience" as we lost it too early to know the gender. Patience seemed to be what the Lord was teaching me then and still is now. I love Ann Voskamp's definition of Patience, "A willingness to wait, surrender to suffering". The quote and figurine seem to sum up my, seemingly long, journey so beautifully. My story is not over yet...

    Submitted by Linda de la Paz in Philippines, August 2016

    Every time I go to America, I want to pass by a Hallmark store to look at Susan's beautiful art works. When my son pased away.... my collection of Susan's art pieces which I bought separately projected my family of 7. I had it displayed at my husband's wake.. It was the talk of the sympathisers asking me if I had ordered it, as it depicted my family's bonding.
