I’ve always loved going barefoot since I was a little girl, but recent developments have given me a greater appreciation for shoes. Not only do they keep our feet warm in cold weather, but they protect our feet from germs and sharp or hard objects.
As many of you already know, a little over a month ago I broke and jammed my toe.
I had been wearing a post-op boot ever since, until a few days ago when I started being able to walk barefoot. That was nice, but I had to be oh, so careful, not to bump it on anything.
And I still couldn’t wear a shoe because the pressure on the top of my foot caused pain.
Good news! Yesterday I was able to wear an actual shoe for the first time since the injury! Woohoo! I walked around in it all day! I had to wear it without a sock, as socks squeeze my toes together, which still hurts. But, hey! Progress is progress! Right?
So, today I thank God for healing my toe enough to be able to wear a shoe almost all day!
Today I am thankful for shoes!
What about you? Are you thankful for shoes? If so, why? Do you also like to walk barefoot when conditions are right?
