Not just a pair of shoes


The week before my mom passed away, she took each of my children shopping for back to school clothes....she even took Chloe, and while she was shopping, she came across these cute shoes and wanted to get them for her for this upcoming Christmas.....With all the crazines of the funeral and then Jared's dad passing I had totally forgot about these shoes.....When my sister and I were going through her stuff I found them.....Every time I see these shoes, I remeber that moment she came back with Chloe with cute new clothes just for Chloe and I remeber how excited my mom was about these shoes and how darling Chloe would look in these shoes at Christmas time....for me, these shoes are my last moments with my mom.....these shoes are represent that this Christmas, my mom is missing from all the festivities,dinners and fun.....everytime I see these shoes I see someone who isn't with us....

She may not be with us in person but we know that she is with us.
I can see her buying Chloe those shoes and being so excited about them. We all love and miss her this year and are glad that we have some great memories of being with her. We love you all-
