I wanted to send my dear friend, Nancy, flowers for her birthday but thought it would be so nice to send her a lasting gift --- something that she could enjoy for years to come --- an abundance of flowers. She is always doing special things for others and I think there is no better way to recognize her generous and loving heart than with this very special Willow Tree figure. I was able to send her my love from New York across the country to her home in California.
My daughter and son-in-law gave me this piece as a gift when they returned from their honeymoon. My daughter said the lady reminded her of both me and my mom. It immediately reminded me of the story my dad told of the first time he ever saw my mom. It was at Camp Sherman in Oregon and he saw my mom coming down the road with an armful of flowers. Both of my parents recently passed away, and this piece, and the thoughtfulness of my daughter and son-in-law brought tears to my eyes and made my heart swell. Even now, as I write this, I am teary-eyed.
It's inpiring for Susan to hear how you feel about your Willow Tree piece. Your personal interpretation is so meaningful... thank you for taking the time to share it.
