  • [SIZE=2]"An Ugly Pair of Shoes"[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=2]I am wearing a pair of shoes.
    They are ugly shoes.
    Uncomfortable Shoes.
    I hate my shoes.
    Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
    Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
    Yet, I continue to wear them.
    I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
    They are looks of sympathy.
    I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
    They never talk about my shoes.
    To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
    To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
    But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
    I now realize that I am not the other one who wears these shoes.
    There are many pairs in the world.
    Some women are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
    Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
    Some have work the shoes so long that days will go by
    before they think of how much they hurt.
    No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
    Yet, because of the shoes I am a stronger women.
    These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
    They have made me who I am.
    I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.[/SIZE]

  • This totally made me tear up and I had to stop myself because I'm at work. Hugs to everyone who has ever experienced a loss...the pain is always there.
