In the winter I love to wear my Dansko's. I have a black and a brown pair. Well guess what? Today I decided to add a little excitement to the day and I ended up wearing one of each!!! Didn't I just mention in a past post how busy I have been lately? I know I have totally lost it now!!!
I had to be at work today at 7am, so I was up and out of the house really early. I had my shoes in the hallway and just ran by and slipped them on in the dark and took off out the front door.
I got to work (remember, I am a Nanny) and proceeded to do my usual morning routine at their house. The Mom was there, but was busy doing her thing trying to get the oldest child out the door. We talked, but she or the children never noticed my shoes.
I took the youngest child to pre-school and WALKED in the building! No one noticed my shoes or if they did, they were polite and didn't say anything.
I then went to the dry cleaners and it is one that you walk in to (not a drive-through). Again, no one mentioned my shoes.
From there I went to the grocery store and was there for about an hour. Still no comment from anyone about my shoes. I had not noticed them either! LOL!!!
After grocery shopping, it was time for my morning Bible study group. It was while we were discussing our book, Crazy Love by Francis Chan, that I looked down and noticed that I had on two colors of shoes. I pointed it out to everyone and we all had a good laugh!!! And believe it or not, every lady there admitted to having done that at least once in her life.
I am amazed at God's sense of humor and how He brought laughter and smiles to our Bible study group this morning through something as simple as my mismatched shoes!
I am a 57 year old Mom adjusting to my new life as an empty nester. I love the Lord!!! I taught pre-school for the past 16 years, but I am now working as a Professional Nanny and I am loving it!!! I love anything blue. Christmas is my favorite holiday and I collect Santas. I also collect Noah's Arks and angels. I am a Southern girl and I love sweet tea and desserts!!! My hobbies include quilting,knitting, scrapbooking, making cards and just about anything "crafty". I love thrift shops/yard sales and searching out those special "treasures" for my home! My 2 daughters are the JOY of my life and I love spending time with them!!! I married my high school sweetheart and we have been married for 34 years! I love to cook and baking sweets is my favorite!!! I love the beach, but we spend a lot of time in the mountains!
I am a cancer survivor and I treasure every day that God has blessed me with!!!
