Treasuring a rare, quiet and tender moment of motherhood

    “I tried to capture a quiet moment in time, since they are so rare when you have a young child. At that age, about 18 months — they're their own little person — with a defined personality separate from your own. This is one rare and tender moment together — in sync with each other.”

    Tenderness

    Submitted by Carrie Hamilton Davis in Ohio, October 2016

    I have collected Willow Tree's for years. I have so many that are so truly special and meaningful to me but if I were to have to pick just one that is the most meaningful I would have to pick "Tenderness". My husband Thomas buys me a Willow Tree for most holidays and special occasions and he now has the help of our little boy Lucas to help. Lucas picked this one for me for Christmas and said it is me and mommy. That boy has my whole heart and there is nothing better in this world than holding him and looking into his eyes and seeing the love he has for me. I look at that figurine and I can honestly see Lucas and I. I love the meaning and the fact that the details are so perfect. Mommies holding their boys and just trying to get one more snuggle before they get to big. Thank you for capturing those moments, the little ones that mean so much!

    Tenderness

    Submitted by Elisabeth in Berlin, Germany, September 2015

    I got Tenderness from my husband when our daughter was about two. I instantly fell in love with it as my daughter looks similar to the girl, she has curly hair in about the same colour, and I have hair like the mother. It just means so much to me... we waited for a few years to have her, having to use the help of fertility specialists to finally conceive; and after her birth, I was ill for a long time, not allowed to have her with me, or even hold her. To look at Tenderness just gives me great joy. If we have any more children, I would love to have more from Willow Tree to represent them, my husband, our family.

    My sister bought me this Willow Tree, it was my first and has started quite a collection. This piece was a gift for the birth of my son. Sadly he was stillborn at 39 weeks. I love that I have a special figure for each of my beautiful children.

    Tenderness, Grandmother

    Submitted by Amber in west jordan, utah, May 2013

    For mother's day I got the Tenderness figurine. I felt like it reflected mine and my son's relationship and behavior exactly. We also got my mother-in-law the grandmother figurine and she loved it right away. She is always doing this action that the figurine shows with my son. Thank you for your creations.

    Submitted by crystal in ohio, June 2012

    My best friend bought me my first Willow Tree a few years ago, and I remember always being envious of her collection because she was a mother and I knew I would never get to collect those types. I was told my whole life never to get pregnant or I would die. Well I didn't listen and I became pregnant anyway. I spent two weeks in a coma after the birth of my son of only 28 weeks gestation. While he lay in an incubator, my husband and friends stood by and watched over us as we slowly healed. The day I woke from my coma my husband presented me the Guardian Willow Tree. My favorite nurse brought me my most cherished though, Tenderness. Needless to say I no longer have to be envious of anyone's collection, because I have taken the prize.

    Tenderness

    Submitted by Christine in CA, May 2012

    Years ago my brother's wife bought my family our first Willow Tree piece. Angel of Wonder was meant as a Christmas piece, but I can't bear to pack it away. After that my sweet 2 year old at the time broke a piece in the store. I purchased it and with a little glue it was like new. That was the year I was certain children are more important than figurines. To this day (he is 9) he calls that his angel. When my mother passed away her best friend bought me Tenderness to remind me of her. I love Tenderness and it has brought me great joy. Recently (Mother's Day) my husband added several beautiful pieces to my collection. As I rearranged my pieces, to my horror Tenderness shattered when a shelf I was cleaning fell on top of it and knocked it 5 feet to the floor. I was bawling like a baby. But after scraping all the pieces together I took out the super glue and tenderly pieced together Tenderness. She will never be the same. There is a hole in the back side of her. However, she brings me joy, and peace. I love all my pieces. Life is often about putting the pieces back together again and again and again. I am so thankful for Susan's talent and that she shares it with the world. These pieces are so much more than nicknacks for me.

    My colleague which I found her a kind sister gave me this figure for the Dad's day. I didn't expect to receive a gift from her for that day. It was my first Willow Tree. It was adorable and really lovely,it represented the sense inside it without any word. It was the best gift I could get from her in that day. Its always energetic for me,when I look at it I see my sister. It just need to be seen.

    Submitted by Angely in TEXAS, July 2011

    I received this item today for my birthday from my husband. We have a one year old and every morning when I pick him up out of his crib, this is how my husband finds us. Foreheads touching, just gazing into one another's eyes. This sculpture really touched my heart because my son is so dear to me. Every time I look at this (even when he is grown and "too cool" to cuddle with his momma) I will remember those beautiful moments with him.

    My mother gave me this figurine for Christmas when my now 4 year old was 2... it's my first Willow Tree and I adore it. I am a single mother of one amazing little boy whose father is not a part of our lives in any way, and for me this figurine symbolizes all the wonderful moments my son and I share, the protection I feel for him, and the love he provides me in a seemingly never-ending supply. I keep it right where I can see it whenever I am in my bedroom, and it makes me smile almost as much as my son does.

    Submitted by Judy in South Carolina, May 2010

    My Mama just passed on April 30th. I never thought when I was younger that I would only have Her for 25 years of my life. I'm thankful for the time I had with her, and I"m thankful that she is a beautiful angel with the Lord now. A close friend to the family, "Mama Stasia," lost her husband just ten days later. Even though she is dealing with the loss of her own husband she took the time to send me a box with this beautiful angel inside. She wrote "Each time you look at my gift, I pray that you will remember your mother as God's special angel. Know that the child she is holding in her arms is you, her precious daughter whom she loved with all her heart." Mama Stasia, if you read this, know that I love you and thank you so much. This has touched my heart in so many ways. Thank you! When I thought of my mom, this was my first thought: When I was a little girl my mama held me just like that as she danced and sang to me. So this angel really does touch my heart. I love you, Mommy. Forever my Mommy you'll be. I'll be with you again one day. Save a place for me.

    Submitted by Nadine in Massachusetts, May 2010

    In April of 2010 I lost a baby pretty far in my pregnancy. I was devastated. We had our daughter, Brielle, cremated and my husband and I originally decided to spread her ashes at a playground. But when we got her ashes back, I just couldn't do it. I decided to put her ashes in the "Angel of Mine" memory box, and I got the statue "Tenderness" to keep next to it as it reminds me of myself and my 3 year old always by her side.

    I am a first time mom to a wonderful son. This was given to me as a gift from a good friend who has been like a "mentor" mom to me. I love it so much. It really captures those sweet treasured moments I have with my little boy. Looking at this statue always reminds me of that special bond we have with each other.
