This may seem like a strange addition to a Christian household. But these Buddhas are not for worship, but in commemoration. DS has been called our Buddha since he was born. Our first child DD was extremely intense. I could barely put her down. She was very intense and demanded attention. When DS came along, things were so different. It seemed impossible that they could share DNA. DS was quiet, placid. I used to joke that I could have left him in the corner and left him for days without a problem (not that I would ever do that). His serenity has continued as he has grown. He has a palpable peace about him that is contagious. Thus, he became our Buddha. DD was the first person to gift us with an actual Buddha to commemorate him. Then DS and I found the second one. I dare say you can’t call it a collection, but I’m sure we’ll add more in the coming years as they bring me great delight and are like having a picture of his soul as opposed to his face.
