i admired the little shoes kicked off just inside our back door today. these belong to the feet of my ever-growing daughter who seems to have shoes spread about in every room of our house. i think about those feet when they were so tiny and the only thing she would allow on them in those days were my kisses. shoes and socks were almost always shed immediately. and now, those feet march, stomp, jump, kick, run...and are growing up. sigh.
