For those who believe in the power of prayer

Angel of Prayer

Submitted by Wendy in KY, August 2012

My mom passed away Jan 20, 2004. She lost her battle with breast cancer. While she was ill she was given three different Willow Tree figures: Angel of Courage, Angel of Hope and Angel of Prayer. I was so moved by these figures. Since her passing, I purchase a new Willow Tree every Jan 20 in remembrance of her. I have also expanded it to every monumental occasion in my life. I LOVE this collection, no matter what I am looking to symbolize or represent I can find it in this collection. They are so heart felt and beautiful. Every year I stand in front of the store selection crying, tears of sadness as well as joy, trying to figure out what my new figure is going to represent and how it will remember and honor my mother. Thank you so much for these beautiful items and allowing me to have a beautiful way to remember my mother. I find true joy in searching for new figures each year.

To Found Angels and Better Days Our time was up. Vacation days expended. We absolutely had to go home. On the day that we were to leave, while wandering and half-dusting and taking “a last look," I found one of my mother’s much loved, little angels. Mom would gasp and squeal like a girl, and joyfully purchase these angels whenever she found them, at eateries, or card shops, or boutiques. I suppose, in her illness, this little kneeling pretty had somehow fallen behind a shelf and not even been missed. Covered with dust, her once lovely wire wings bent, she had apparently been lost there for some time. I have since found out that she is the "Angel Of Prayer." I gently cleaned her, straightened her wings and without much thought, slipped her into my pocket. Mom was sleeping when I entered the bedroom. I whispered her awake, leaned over that wretched hospital bed and kissed my mother’s lips for what I knew then, would be the last time in this life (I can still feel her lips on my lips). Try as I might, I could not make myself say “goodbye Mom," so I said instead “I have to go now Mom… I’ll see ya later.” She looked at me for so long, so deeply into my eyes, that I knew that for that momet she was with me, really seeing me, and finally, slowly and thoughtfully, with a small nod of her bare head, she said “yeah Honey, (nodding) I’ll see ya later.” I turned and didn’t look back. My goodness, but that was hard. My husband, loving soul that he is, had already loaded everything, leaving me to carry the only memento that I now have of my mother’s entire life--this little praying angel. To this day, there are times when I can’t seem to get that last look out of my head. Times when I can’t stop seeing her eyes as she looked so deeply into mine. Times when I need another perspective. These are the times when I turn to the shelf over my own bed, look to that little found angel, and meditate on long ago better days. Thank you Willow Tree. I salute you- here's to found angels and better days.

I bought my first Willow Tree statue, Angel watching over me, because I prayed to come home to Norway.

A year ago my mother died; her death left me devastated. A week after my mother's memorial service I started attending the church where my parents were members.. This past weekend I was received into the church that I have been attending for the past year. I received the "Angel of Prayer" as a gift from my sponsor. The Angel of Prayer reminds me of a monk who is praying for her in response to the request that my mother made when she was a young woman. Now whenever I look at the Angel of Prayer, I will think of my mother.

Over a month ago, I had surgery to remove cancer. My co-workers gave me the Angel of Prayer right before my operation. I will never forget the strength and support from them. I never knew how much they love and care for me! Every time I look at my angel I say a prayer for them. I will now collect Willow Tree, thank you for doing beautiful work and making people smile.
