Her Shoes

Her Shoes, originally uploaded by Snakelover61.

On a weekend at Lake Texoma, my love took me to the place where she and her family used to camp when she was a little girl. I was very touched that she wanted to share this with me. She took her shoes off and waded to the other side of a little cove. It was sweet. When she was a little girl, this was quite a swim for her and her sister, as the water was much higher then.

I saw her shoes there on the sand and something just compelled me to take this picture. I always kid her about how ugly these shoes are, but they're starting to grow on me. She's growing on me too! They say you shouldn't judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes. This photo reminds me that sometimes I need to take the time to pause and just try to see things from her point of view.

God, thank You for all the things You've taught me and continue to teach me about love and relationship. And thank You especially for putting this wonderful woman in my life to love and be loved by.

What a Kleenex Moment! There should have been a warning. Is there any wonder why I love this man? Thank you, David. This was a sweet blog. And you know I love this picture. ~Mindy

Awwww! I was already in a sappy mood because I just finished re-reading Michener's Sayonara. Now if only IT Guy was as romantic....

He'd tell you you're making it mighty tough on the average guy.

Lucky Mindy. She's got you AND the hat!
