Dear Friends, I was just reading an article in a magazine put out by World Vision. It’s true.  You buy a pair of shoes and the company donates a pair of shoes to a needy child.  So simple, so beautiful.  I saw the article and I almost cried, not only because of the concept and the way it keeps childrens’ feet from infection, worms from entering the body, allows children to stay healthy and go to school.  I more cried at the way I found these shoes.  I saw them in Lucky.  Hm, I thought.  I saw the gold ones on a speaker at MOPS.  Cute!  I thought.  I saw them I lady at Michael’s Craft store.  Gee….I thought.  I’ve never heard of these shoes before and all of a sudden they are in my face.  When I saw the article I just felt a sense of meaning and purpose and  hope, and so I cried.  Again, I live for those little connections that make life mean something.  I think we all long for that, and that’s why, although the companies that step on people will continue until the end of time, these little hope-filled companies and ideas will continue to pop up…and will continue to grow.  The meek will inherit the earth, after all.

I wonder if these shoes will feel good on my bunions.  I think I have said bunions on this blog like five times already!
