As much as I L-O-V-E to clean out and get rid of things I no longer use--there are some things you can just never give away! I could never in a million years for a million dollars everyday get rid of my pointe shoes. On the other hand, it seems kind of pointless to keep them stashed up in a bag in furthest and highest corner of my closet. Those slippers are my reminder to enjoy life. If you haven't heard it, or if it's been a while listen to LeAnn Womack's 'I Hope You Dance'. Even if you weren't a dancer!
One day I will get those shoes bronzed--or maybed 'pewtered', hang them on a satin ribbon where I can be reminded daily to enjoy my many blessings and take the paths God has set before me.
Actually, to be honest, I hope to hang these in my future daughters bedroom! I am absolutely in love with a ballet themed nursery. Imagine blush pink and soft whites, with tutus all around! I've got years till that's gonna happen, but Hey! A girl can dream!

Looks like I will have to cross my fingers that 1) I will eventually have a daughter and 2) she turns out to be a girly-girl who loves to dance like me! :) I guess I'd better prepare for the alternative--what if we only have boys?!! That'll be a dream (?) session for another day....
