“My Boy is Blue”


Description from Artful Chick aka Siobhan: My younger son just moved back in suddenly, and with him came a broken heart. I put together these colors and heaviness in the beads to show how he is feeling after finding his girl with another man. The pendant is my wish that he finds a way to lighten his burdened heart. The obsidian was added so that he may be protected.

    Unfortunately we can not protect our children from the fate of a broken heart. I have walked the path you are on with my daughters. Most people have had a broken heart at one time or another. Time will soften the hurt. I pray his heart doesn’t harden and that his heart will welcome a new love in time. A lovely and thoughtful pick!

    How awful for your son. My granddaughters fiance just broke off their engagement out of the blue last Saturday. They were to be married this August. She is just devistated. It is sad to know that we can only sit by, as there is nothing we can say or do that will make it any better right now for them.

    Love your pick – but sad for the reason behind it.

    Oh your poor son! :( Sorry to hear that he is going through that hurt! One of my younger cousins is going through the same thing. I don’t look forward to this happening to my kids when they are older, but I guess it’s inevitable. He is lucky to have a caring mother like you, though.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your son’s heartache, Siobhan! :( It seems to happen to everyone at one time or another, but that doesn’t make it any easier to go through. I was in your shoes with my daughter, and it hurt me to watch her pain, but now she’s happily married with two children. I pray the same will happen for your son! This is a lovely pick, even if it’s inspiration is sad.

    Thank you my precious beaders. I’m glad to have him back. I just wish the circumstances were better. He handled the situation with dignity, and for that I’m very proud.

    Siobhan, I’m so sorry to hear about your son’s heartbreaking situation. My daughter went through a broken engagement many years ago and now she is happily married to a different man & they now have 3 little girls! Sometimes what seems terrible at the time can turn out to be the best thing for a person. This is a lovely pick you created for him. :D

    It’s so devastating when things like that happen, in some ways more painful when it happens to those we love than to us… But I’m glad you put that gear into you FP: the wheel of life keeps turning.
