3 or More Tuesday....bisque cherubs

Hi y'all! I know I've been neglecting my blog lately but frankly, my heart just hasn't been in it. The anniversary of my son's accident was this past week & it has been weighing heavy on my mind. I honestly don't know if I will ever enjoy the 4th of July again. Hubby & I were talking about how surreal it was last year. Clifton's accident was just the day before & there we were, sitting in that hospital waiting room, watching the TV & seeing the celebrations. It just felt so unreal! How could the world go on when our's had stopped? I was afraid that the feelings of "impending doom" would continue on through the summer, repeating my feelings of last year but I felt as if a weight has been lifted as soon as the 4th was past & I'm ready to shake off the lingering feelings of horror & take control of my emotions back.

For today's 3 or More post,hosted every Tuesday by the very talented Tam over @ The Gypsy's Corner, I'd like to share my collection of Lefton bisque cherubs. These are in my bedroom, paired w/ a collection of rose paintings, which I will share soon in another 3 or More post.

This one is my favorite...LOVE the expression on teh face! I have had this one for years & then came across a pair of them on eBay...I kept the single & gave the pair to my granddaughter, Caralyn, on her 1st birthday.

If you have a collection you'd like to share, link up to Tam's blog...it's always fun to visit & see what everyone else is sharing.

Hi, sweetie pie! So glad you're back, Cami. We've missed you. I'm also sorry you've had to live through the thought of your ordeal again, but I'm glad that the day is past and that you are feeling better. Good enough in fact to share your bisque cherubs with us. I know you enjoy having them close by in your room as they are so dear!

Sending much love your way...

Your cherubs have such a sweet look. A little vintage too? I'm glad your son is recovering. I'm sure it feels like the accident was a lifetime ago, yet just yesterday at the same time. Best Wishes,

Glad to see you back!

From my own experience, the first few years' anniversaries after a tragedy are mind numbing and body stopping. Suddenly a year arrives when you are unintentionally so busy on the days leading up to the date, you don't have time to set yourself up for those feelings. Then a year may arrive when you don't think about it until a day or two AFTER the anniversary.

Whether a tragic event is fatal or not, it truly does become easier to face that date as the years go on. Of course we never forget the event itself, but unlike the happy memories that are good to purposely recall, the sorrowful ones begin to take up less residence in our hearts and minds.

Hey Cami!
The cherubs are so sweet...they have the cutest little faces.

I am glad that you are feeling some better....I can only imagine what you and your family must have went through. God Bless you and your family.
Big Hugs,
