Dear Shoes,

I am so excited that you have joined the dozens of other pairs of shoes in my closet.  I still have shoes from ten years ago sitting unworn and lonely.  But you. . . . you won't be that way!  Not if I have anything to do with it. . . . . for the sole reason I bought you was to get my body back into shape.  You are going to carry me through tough, unbearable workouts,  running around taking the kids (and husband) from one place to another, bringing lunch to Derrel, scenic strolls on the rail trail, cleaning my house or a puddle of throw up from one of the kids and maybe even mowing the lawn once or twice.  We'll go so many places.  It will be hard work but I'll make it worth your while.  

All I ask in return is that you cheer for me, keep me going, help me become a better, stronger person and achieve all the things I need to accomplish. You've got a large load on your hands, but we can do it together!  I hope that you can stay strong for the job ahead of you.  I promise I'll work hard if you do, too.  Thanks in advance for your support.  I won't let you down;)

Oooo, I think I need a good pair of shoes to pull me through loosing baby weight. Thanks for the inspiration.

Glad your little guys is home from the hospital. Having babies in the hospital is so difficult.

Make sure those shoes promise to keep you from slipping on the rail trails, too!

Kim you are such an amazing Mom! I just caught up on your blog after who knows how long and dealing so well with your poor little guy so sick is inspirational. I am glad he is well again and I hope January has been illness free!
