When I was in my early twenties, I had to order my shoes because very few stores carried a dress shoe in a women’s size 11W. I had ordered myself a new pair of black pumps and was anticipating their delivery any day. One night I hurried home from work to my parents’ house and when I walked through the back door I saw my Dad sitting at the kitchen table his blue eyes twinkling and sporting his beautiful smile. I was wondering what was amusing him when I looked down and saw he was sitting with his legs crossed swinging his foot with my new shoes on! Mom, dad and I had a wonderful laugh together over this and I remember it often when I think of them both.
