WordPress Photo Challenge: Broken glass & broken heart

My second submission for this week’s WordPress Photo challenge: “For this challenge, capture something broken: an old window, a vintage sign, a toy never fixed, a contemplative friend. Or go deeper: find beauty in something broken.”


My son Nathan broke my favourite teapot accidentally while washing up one night. I was so stunned I couldn’t speak (being at a loss for words is not the norm for me), not even when I was told “it was an accident, but at least it’s clean”. 

Teenagers. You just have to love them. But how was I going to survive without my calming cup of tea before bedtime??? My poor heart was just as broken as the shattered glass.
