Think of just how MANY little shoes will be there soon.:)
That picture is soooo cute! I love the sound of that: "little shoes among big shoes." We found Oscar a little pair of Tevas that look just like Darin's. He is so proud to wear shoes like papa.
ok, i've been lurking on your site far too long -- enough is enough.hi. i started reading your blog like WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back when you were writing with redbook -- and i've been rooting for you and your family ever since.
ahhhhh, yes....that would bring tears to my eyes too. How absolutely wonderful!!!it's those times that I know how lucky we were...to have those shoes all over the house, to hear those screams of "MINE" and to feel those hugs and kicks. :)
That's so sweet. I love that picture!
Love this.. :)
That just brings a smile to my face!SO cute!
I had a similar thought this morning when I pulled Miles' shoes out of our shoe tray by the back door...
Love it!The constant reminders of gratitude surprise me when I am least expecting it. It is often the simple things of everyday life. The other day my heart melted when I found a pacifer in my purse. I left it even though my kiddos no longer use them because it now belongs.
What a beautiful sight!
Many things are like that, aren't they? It's pretty wonderful.I got to really appreciate fireworks again for the 1st time this year. I remember now why they are so cool. It's like being a little kid again - wonder and excitement abound, if you'll just take the time to really look around.
YES! I note this every single time I see my little guy's shoes next to ours, too. I never, ever take it for granted. He just recently outgrew his first "real" pair -- from when we had him first fitted at Stride-Rite by the lady with the food-measuring thing. I put them away in a box to know doubt cry myself crazy over when he goes off to college. Hope you guys have been having a wonderful summer!
AWESOME! I am so happy for those lil shoes in your life! :O)
I'm right there with ya. He's a miracle indeed!! I've looked at all the shoes on our stairs waiting to be carried up, and I've actually thanked God for our beautiful blessings.
There is nothing like a good pair of jeans; they shape us, support us and make us look our best. I'd love for you to share your jeans with me!
