have you ever thought about high heels? i have. and today my perspective has changed. last night i was talking to a 21 year old woman with spina bifida. it was a priceless conversation. i can think of no better person on earth to help me down the path with saylor then one that has gone before her. she mentioned something that really was tugging at her precious heart. she said the thing that bugs her the most is high heels. "i just want to wear high heels, dress fancy, and be beautiful." her words have yet to flee my thoughts. a very profound thing. makes me feel so ungrateful for so many things that i take for granted. i started to think about how i cant stand that saylor cant wear cute shoes already but i hadnt thought ahead of time to when it will become her desire not mine. then my mind drifted to my own struggle with my own appearance and body and i felt so overwhelmed with guilt ... what do i have to whine about? i can wear high heels.
