The New Shoes

Today I put on my new Nikes. They are a blend of white and gray, with a touch of silver. I have replaced the laces with some Susan G. Komen white laces with pink ribbons. So in addition to being unbelievable comfortable, they make a statement. I think that's kind of cool.

You know how exciting it is to get a new pair of shoes and really want to wear them. It takes the right time and place to make their debut.

I bought them over a year ago, before leaving Seattle after my transplant. I knew these shoes would be part of the new me, exercising and getting back in shape. Their real statement was "I made it. Let's get on with it."

Every day when I decide what shoes to wear, there they are, reminding me of what should have been. Perhaps I will never make it to the day that I am working out again. So I might as well where the damn shoes anyways.
