I think this saying is very useful at this time. It has gotten a lot of attention from strangers. I know these are hard times for so many and as a child I remember coming home from school and taking my shoes off because no matter what, it was my shoes for the school year. Does anyone remember brown and white Oxfords....I hated them. It was common to have steele taps put on your shoes to help them to last. Also off to the shoes repair man for a new sole, the shoe would be smiling at me. I had church shoes, just for church. They were Mary Jane's and no telling how long I wore them...I can remember when I first got this pair they gave me blisters because they were to big and then later curling my toes and wishing church would hurry and get over so I could take them off. Are these bad memories, no....it was just how it is a and we have forgotten how to be a little uncomfortable to put food on the table. When I tell my kids stories about my childhood it is a mistery to them, they have no idea what this life was all about. Thats okay, but now I wonder if they have the tools to step back and make do.
