My New Shoes, Part 1!

Today Lou and I went to the Village Shoe Shop.  The last time I had shoes made was  two years ago.  So it was time for new shoes.  I’m thankful for my friend Lee Headley taking care of the cost of my shoes. I would not have been able to buy them.

My friends Edie, and Ester, at Village Shoe Shop, took care of everything to start the process. I should have new shoes in about 4 to 6 weeks. Stay tuned to see the posting with me sporting my new shoes.

While I was there, My Facebook friend, Kim Reed,  saw my post about me going to the shoe shop and wanted to stop by but she wasn’t able to make it.  She asked her husband Joe to come and see me.

I know Kim and Joe Reid from Second Baptist Church, where I attend. I was happy to see Joe again, and I look forward to seeing Kim soon. It really turned out to be one of those days.  A Tremendous Day for sure!  Enjoy the photos.

    1. It take time Sis, but you can do it just like I can. Of course it is not easy. It is not easy for me, but I still try. I hope you will also.

  4. When I first started to walk until age of 13 or 14, I had to wear special shoes. One the left, the heal and sole had to be built up since my right leg was longer than the left by over a inch or so. Also had to be over the ankles. Just could not walk to any shoe store to get them, they had to be ordered. I could not remember how they took measurements. I did not realize, when I took a closer look at your shoes when you were in Dallas back in February. Even buying socks is not a easy thing to do (for you). After the series of the operations, I was able to buy regular shoes. Although, my left foot is a little larger than the right. I thought that was funny since my right leg was longer than the left, so I guess it balance out.
