My New Red Shoes

“and the most curious thing about them is that they can carry you to any place in the world in three steps, and each step will be made in the wink of an eye. All you have to do is to knock the heels together three times and command the shoes to carry you wherever you wish to go.” The Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz.

The Wizard of Oz was my all time favourite book when I was a child. The book was already a well loved book when it arrived at our home. And when , after my three older sisters had read it, it came to me – minus the cover but with all the pages in tact. I remember loving the smell of the pages that held the words that I read over and over.

In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy finds out that she has had the means to return to Kansas the whole time that she had been in Oz. It isn’t until she realizes the power of the shoes that she is able to return home.

We too, have the power to achieve incredible things. We just need to believe.

I love my new red shoes.

I love the complements I receive on my new red shoes. What I love the most about the complements is that they come from women who are in the same age bracket as me. When they complement my new red shoes, they smile and then we smile at each other with a smile that says ‘I HAVE FOUND THE POWER!’
