Standing Strong

Origami Womens shoes

Thinking

Of all women

In the recent past times

Whose feet tread upon injustice

An stood

Some silent, but unwavering

Strong upon their beliefs

Of equal rights

For all

Monotonous Motion

Treadmills at the gym

Questioning my purpose

Walking everyday

And yet I’m going nowhere

On the treadmill of life

Need to stop and get off

That sad revolving belt

Get out in the real world

Find new paths to walk on

New voices to listen

To, and new faces to see

Realize I’m in control

Of where my feet step

I need to choose wisely

And plan future paths

Spring in My Step

Daffodils in red vase

Walking down the street

Daffodils strewn all about

Flowers at my feet

Happenstance recipient

Of Random Act of Kindness

Today as I was walking downtown in search of a restaurant, my eyes beheld a strange sight. I was passing by an old abandoned theatre and there, in the entrance way were scattered 5 fresh, bright golden daffodils, just waiting for a leading lady to pick up. How fortuitous for me!

First Pedicure

feet on welcome mat
Today feet

Got royal treatment 

Were massaged

And pampered

They’ve been thru a lot, but

Rewarded today

Thankful to be back walking around on these feet again. It has been 2-1/2 months since my hip surgery and I am doing well. Today was a special treat for my feet and toes. They deserved it! They have done a lot for me over the years! 😊
