|Brynwood Needleworks - Farm Wife Feet|
I took this photo when I was in Florida. Don't ask why I'm wearing white anklets with my sandals. No. I haven't worn them in public...yet, but I think it's a very farm wife look. Now to find (or make) the dresses and aprons to complete the ensemble!
Thing is, when I put these socks and shoes on and looked down at them, I was instantly transported to my childhood. I remembered a lady named Bernice (Foerster) who lived near us. She always wore white anklets with her shoes (that looked like these). She wore her hair in a crown of tight, permed curls and I remember that she always had a smile on her face and a kind word. Thoughts of her stir happy thoughts for me.
I must have been only three or four years old, but I remember this lady to this very day. I guess it's true that people don't always remember what you say, but they never forget how you made them feel. I must keep this in mind as I go about my daily tasks. Bernice and her sweet demeanor will forever live in my memories.

We have a choice. I choose joy. I wish the same for you.
