My Traveling Shoes

Done found myself a new pair of travelin' shoes to wear on this leg of my journey. Handmade to fit and suit me just right, supportin' and comfortin' me each step of the way.They are wild and colorful as I chose them to be, they suit my personality.
I've traveled so many miles in shoes that someone else bought for me, plain, poorly fitted, worn, second hand, hand me downs. Ohh, they hurt my feet and took me places that I didn't need to go, places that I didn't want to go. For many years I put them on. I was told it was my duty, but my heart was heavy and my cares so many.

I own these shoes. They are mine.

Connections



It is a beautiful thing, the connections we experience in life. Whether it be with people, animals, music , art, literature...somehow that connection can be such a life changing experience. The encounter we have can give us such depth and insight. It is all important. Sweet Pea is a kitten born outside my home. I feed the ferrel cats in my neighborhood. Unlike most of the cats, she was always approaching me and trying to come in my house. Most of the other cats eat the food and at the most will rub my ankles as I put the food out but they do not want to be handled and have no desire to enter my house. When Sweet Pea was just a five months old she got very sick, so I took her to the vet and she became one of my three house cats. Yes, she is part of our family now and what a delight she is! Today I give thanks for all my connections!!!


What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.

I'm glad that Sweet Pea is an inside cat. Some just want to get close. I'm glad that she did.
