It rained Tuesday. My feet got wet. Really wet. I had the uncommon feeling of blue jeans rolled one extra roll because of the puddled water and muddy grass and warm black-top with no shoe or shoe-back as a barrier. And the spit out chew in the parking lot at Target I almost stepped in. And the funny looks from the Walgreen’s clerk who didn’t speak English so I couldn’t really tell her why I was barefoot. I got to shared why I was shoeless with four people, ten if you count my wife and kids. It was a good experience.
That about sums up my second “one day without shoes.” Grateful to Toms.com for the awareness campaign and for their generosity as a business. May we all be aware and active to share all that has been given to us.
