I get to ruggles & an older gentleman in a wheelchair begins to make remarks on my shoes. “Those are fabulous, how do u walk in them & sistergirl u look nice…” Being the crab that I am in the mornings, I begin to complain. I don’t even say thanks.”The weather sucks, I need more sleep & hate my hair wet, plus I’m short I have to wear heels…” He chuckles , & says ” sorry to hear all that, but I’m sure my day is worse but still got a smile. “” I haven’t put on my own shoes & walked for 25 yrs” I don’t remember what it feels like to stand tall, but I remember how people Used to treat me when I was eye level… I feel like I’m in the matrix. Every day something happens to me to make me more appreciative of life.
