    Default Shoes

    A friend of mine, who has cancer, shared this with me. I thought I would share it with you, as well.

    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.
    Someday my shoes hurt so bad that I don't think I can take another step.
    Yet, I continue to wear them.

    I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
    I can tell in other's eyes, they are glad these 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 I'm not the only one who wears these shoes.
    There are many pairs in this world.

    Some people ache daily as they try to walk in them.
    Some have learned how to walk in them so 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.
    Nobody deserves to wear these shoes.

    Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger person.
    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 someone who has had cancer.

    Lost in fog and love and faithless fear,
    I've had kisses that make Judas seem sincere..

    Each Event is preceded by Prophecy. But without the hero, there is no Event.

    Even though, many people die everyday, but every 18 seconds a miracle is born. (:
