Celebrate 40 Years of Precious Moments
This year celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Precious Moments and I must say I am excited to share this year with them as in just a few short months, I also turn 40. For me, Precious Moments always played an important part in celebrating special events while growing up. Seeing the love my mom had for these figures led to my love and now it is one that I have passed on down to my daughter.
One of my favorite pieces is my Precious Moments Nativity set that my husband bought me a few years into our marriage as surprise Christmas gift. It was identical to the one my mom had and was something I always wanted. I love it so much that I display it year round in my living room.
It is hard to think that Precious Moments started out with only 21 original figures when I have more than that in my collection. They are continually coming out with new pieces and I love their collaborations with Disney, Care Bears, and other brands that are as cherished as they are. Pieces such as the Care Bears “You Fill My Heart with Cheer” make wonderful additions to my collection, even though recently my daughter has started claiming them.
In honor of their 40th anniversary, Precious Moments allowed me to pick out a gift for someone special (or myself) in my life. I choose my daughter because over the past 18 months she has fought hard to battling depression, recovering from sexual abuse, and accepting a medical diagnosis of fibromyalgia at only 14 years of age. I wanted to gift her a figure that would serve as a reminder that she is not alone through her struggles and trials.
The piece I chose was the ” When You Go Through Deep Waters I Will Be With You” Figurine. It not only serves as reminder that we are here for her but that God is big enough for all her problems and He will lift her out of the puddles of life and keep her save in the storms.
Not only was able to gift her a piece, they also gifted me with a piece for myself. I chose the “Love Came Down and Rescued Me” Figurine as a reminder to myself that I am who I am because God came down and saved my soul.
It is never to late to add additional pieces to your collection or start a collection of your own. There are so many different styles to choose from and there is bound to be a special item for the important people in your life.
