Fallen Angel


A Christmas disaster, or rather an after-Christmas disaster. This is one of those times you wish you could turn back time. Just one minute earlier would have prevented my carelessness in carrying this angel down the hall to put her away after the holidays. It will be easily repaired, but she'll always carry the scar.
Sorry about the poor photograph. For several reasons I didn't have time to learn the ins and outs of close-ups with this new camera today.

Aww... I know that feeling of wanting to go back in time a few minutes to avoid a mishap. But then, don't we all carry a few scars from watching over those we love?

Linda took the words out of my mouth :) I wanted to say isn't the scar that make us look stronger and sort of pretty in certain way...the picture is nice!

Sandy said...

Darn...well at least she can be repaired. Scars are okay though.

oooops!!

and darn it.... the angel is lovely. Hopefully once it is repaired, nobody but you will know.

She got off lightly....it could have been her face and, at least, the wing is repairable. Your angel will be just as beautiful with a little more character ~ :)

Kerry said...

Sorry about the wing but she is still lovely and will still watch over you.

Serena took the words out of my mouth, our scars are what give us character.

Barbara said...

I wonder how many times I have said the same thing wish I could turn back time. So sorry.

Her scare just adds to her story and like others have pointed out, scars make us stronger, adds to our character, and we can get them while watching over those we love. All beautiful sentiments to a small mishap. She's lovely. Blessings, Nicole
