Scottsdale Getaway -

Last weekend, Kayley and I made a quick trip to Scottsdale. My Godparents from Milwaukee were in town visiting my parents, so we jumped at the chance to see them. Who knows when we'll get to Milwaukee again.

It was a quick trip, but we had fun seeing them and my family. Kayley loved staying at my sister's house. We usually stay with my parents, but this time she got to campout with her cousins.

Saturday afternoon we took a hike in McDowell Mountain Ranch in North Scottsdale. It was a little warm, but it was a beautiful hike. I took lots of pictures. The AZ desert is so beautiful compared to the one I live in.

The group pic is my sister, Jennifer, "Maude" Gail, and me!

The view of Scottsdale was gorgeous!

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.
