Amy's Precious Shoes

my new earth shoes, kodak ls753

From her sweet little feet to my sweet little feet. Here they are, as comfy and as perfect as can be. These will now become my most blessed shoes. Not only because they are so fricken adorable, but because for a while they were worn by this precious soul...whom is a new dear friend of mine.

Her feet were too bony for them, so she sent me an email asking me what size shoe I wore since I practically drooled all over the picture of them on her blog the other day. And guess what...we have the same size feet (among other kindred things).

Thank goodness my feet are nice and chubs...so there are no bones being suffocated by the darling buckles! I know my sister Darlene just read that and started laughing because she used to tell me I had "Barney Rubble" feet growing up. Which, those of you who watched the Flintstones know that Barney's feet were wide and f-a-t. Mmhmm...only a sister could get away with that. *smile*

amy's marvelous package, kodak ls753

Amy also sent me a treasure trove of handmade, homemade and herbal goodies. My eyes welled up with tears as I first opened the box and the smell of lavender drifted up to my nose. Usually when I open a package, I excitedly race through each little gift, crazed with anticipation but this time, I took a deep breath, put on The Weepies (because she loves them as well) and gently unfolded each offering of friendship. I am learning to slow down in my life with such things and really, really marinate in them.

So, with each sweet gift, a tear was wiped and loving words about this beautiful soul was spoken out loud into the herbal scented air (with The Weepies in agreement).

This was the first post I read of hers and my comments inspired her to connect with me. Her red braids reminded me of one of my favorite characters Anne of Green Gables and then later, in getting to know more of her inner, I found that her spirit reminded me of Anne's as well.

Mmmm...a written "field guide" to my box, a fabulous CD, all sorts of teas, soap facial mask, RED SHOES, lavender chocolate, caribou antler buttons, homemade marvelous healing salve, essential oil, Ganesha figure (happy elephant - a remover of obstacles) and last but not least MELTED SNOW FROM ALASKA! Isn't that the cutest???


Thank you, dear Amy. How this is so very healing to me. Each gift was so well thought out by you and yes...perfect, just perfect for what I need right now. This touched me more than I can possibly put into words here in this space...but you know...you know.

Enjoy your cute shoes!

Oh you sweet baby sis!!! I may have teased you about your f-a-t little feet, but I also kissed each little pudgy piggy toe right after. (I'm a really big sis, 10 years her senior) I still love those piggies of yours, however the kissing has ended. Mmmm how about a nice foot massage instead!
Love the shoes!
