A SPECIAL FIGURINE & QUOTATION



     A distant relative from Australia sent me this figurine shortly after the death of my twin sister in 2008.  As I look at it I remember this quotation - "The gift of inspiration is that God fills us with understanding and vision and enlivens our grieving spirits." - Monica Chusid, Senior Manager at SMA Consulting.

Maria said...

judy, the angel is beautiful and such a thoughtful gift from your relative.
my mom has many "willow tree" pieces. when my grandmother passed away last month, my mom's best friend gave her a candle very similar.
she keeps it lighted next to my grandmother's service card.

i love the quotation! i'm wishing you a very peaceful february as you continue to grieve and heal.
you're never far from my thoughts, judy!
