Shoes, glorious shoes


I put the boots into their box, knowing that they will go in the back of the closet with a number of other unworn shoes I’ve purchased on impulse — a lovely pair of satin stilettos in hot pink, a black patent pair of stripper shoes; flats with faux diamonds that cut mercilessly into my toes; a pair of sandals in an odd mauve color that I would never wear, but have the most amazing zig-zag design on the heel; and my purple curly toed elf shoes from Kazakhstan. My lifestyle mostly calls for flip-flops and sensible Sunday pumps. But every now and then, I spend a few minutes trying on my secret stash, and I remember there is a God, and He really does love me.
