"I Am Wearing A Pair of Shoes"

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 only one who wears these shoes.
There are many pairs in this world.

Some women are like me and ache daily as they try to walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so that they don't hurt quite so much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.

No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
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.

In Memory of Annabelle (Bella)

Photos (c) Shannon G. Wamsley
Six years ago today a piece of my heart left this world. 

I miss my Annabelle (Bella) today just as much as the day she left. I miss her bark, her cute little stubby tail wagging and her doggie kisses. 

I miss cuddling with her, taking her on car rides, her playing with tennis balls and her playing with all her stuffed babies. 

Bella was a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. She will be forever a part of me. 

I love you Bella forever and always!
