At the thrift store this week there was a small shoe box filled with old baby shoes.
It was impossible to resist the urge to take them home with me.
The first pair I pulled out had a jingle bell on each shoe.
Written on the bottom of one of the two was the name Don.
The next pair had the name Diane written on the bottom of one of the shoes.
...and then the name Doug was on the third pair...
...and Dean on the last pair...also sporting jingle bells.
The pink booties did not have a name on them but I would have to assume they belonged to Diane as well.
I will clean them up and polish them and shine up the rusty jingle bells.
Can you picture the little ones who once wore these baby shoes?
...and the mother who lovingly placed them in this shoebox...unable to let go of the sweet memories filling these tiny shoes.
Time goes by so fast.
If you have children that are still at home...
...make some more happy memories to cherish!
