Nieces' B-day Gifts -

My SIL's twins turned 17 last week, so I thought I'd make something for them to journal their Senior year in! Had to add some beaded pens too! Then of course, I needed to decorate some gift bags to match! I started all this about 2 hours before the party! :) They turned out great and I got a "These are cool!" reply when they opened them.


Paper was from a Mat Pack from JoAnn's or Micheals. Not sure on which one. Chipboard letters were from the Target $1 Spot.



Birthday greeting is from the new SU! set "Heard from the Heart". I just love this set! Background of bags are stamped with sayings from the "Party Hearty" set. Both are in the new catty!

A PAIR OF SHOES - AUTHOR UNKNOWN

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.
