Weekly Photo Challenge: Split Second Story

This week’s challenge was to capture a moment, person, place or thing, that tells a story….

It only took a “split second” for this to happen…

broken cup

And when it did, not only did the cup break, but my heart broke just a little too.

A special gift, from a special person. Β My daughter.

Gone, in just a split second.

    Sad, but a true interpretation of this week’s challenge. Sorry you lost your cup; hope you mend soon.

    Oh how I know this split-second!!! πŸ™‚

      Isn’t it a sickening feeling? Especially when it was a gift 😦
      Oh well, like you said, it’s a great reminder….and life goes on.

    p.s. Mend it with glue and then put it in a special place where you can see it but don’t use it. A reminder of just how fragile life is.

    • Becky says:

      Oh, what a good idea. I wish I would have done that with this one. It’s already in the trash. However,…would you believe I have another cup that she gave me that I managed to break as well?! That one, I did glue it back together and it sits on my desk and holds pens and pencils πŸ™‚
      You are so right…life is very fragile, and every little reminder helps.

      I totally agree with Life&Ink’s comment!

  4. Even though this is a great rendition of the photo challenge, I just can’t hit the ‘like’ button because I don’t like that you broke a gift from your daughter. 😦 It’s happened so often to me too. I guess that’s where the old saying, “It’s the thought that counts” really fits.

  5. What a lovely teacup! I’ve broken beautiful things too, but it’s better to have used them than to just let them sit on the shelf. It’s a beautiful photo too. You should frame the picture as a reminder. πŸ™‚

    Awesome as always! Makes me want to fly over with some super glue and some Chamomile to calm you.

    • Becky says:

      Thank you Monique! The cup is long gone, but I would love to share a cup of tea with you. Come on over! πŸ™‚

  7. It’s too bad that china cups are not as strong as the mother/daughter bond. Hugs.
