My Parents Last Visit -

It's been a busy last week for us. My parents were here visiting from AZ for the past week. It worked out that they could be here for Kayley's "Back-to-School Night". She was so excited to show her Grandma her school and have her meet her teacher. She's having a great time in 1st Grade! The above pic is from that night.

I barely see Kayley or my mom when they are together. Kayley loves to keep "Grammy" all to herself playing Uno, tea party, or watching movies. I was kind of happy she's in school now, so I could have a little "Mommy & Me" time for myself. We were able to have a day of shopping and we saw "Mama Mia". It's a good movie - bring the tissues if you haven't seem it yet. That song "Slipping Through My Fingers" gets me everytime! lol We also spent some time in the stamp room - my mom is crafty too and is always looking for ideas to try out with her people at work (she works at a Life Care Center and does activities with the residents).

On Sunday we took a drive to Oak Glen. My parents had never been in the 13 years that I've lived here. We went to Riley's and had lunch and then drove around the main road. The big apple picking doesn't start until this weekend, so we missed out on that experience. We did bring home one of the "Mile High" apple pies though. I don't normally eat apple pie, but that pie was really good!

We stopped at Oak Tree Village while in Oak Glen too! Kayley had fun feeding a Pot Belly pig named 'Sugar", getting a pony ride, and also feeding some deer.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

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 woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as 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.
