Much Luckier

There has been a young man in our house who has been wearing unlucky shoes. I know, tragic, huh? I didn't realize they were unlucky, I mean, he's wearing them in this picture:

By the way, Julia Shinkle ROCKS! I started a post on her, I'll have to finish it and get it up here for you to read.

But, some time between then and now, either the luck had rubbed off exposing the bad luck, or he's somehow happened to step in a big ol' pile of bad luck and changed the original standing of those shoes.

Regardless of how it happened, those shoes changed everything for him. Something had to be done.

I keep an envelope just for shoe purchases. I got the envelope out thinking that there really was very little in it and, thankfully, found that there was enough for a pair for him if he wanted them. It would just mean that when we go as a family to buy shoes, his part of the budget would be much reduced because of this purchase. He was okay with that.

Anything not to wear unlucky shoes.

Just in case you didn't know, orange Converse are lucky. But, I guess if you think about it long and hard, they'd have to be. Why else would you buy them?

The lucky shoes were WELL within budget. With the money in his hand, shoe boy couldn't argue that some shoes were too expensive, but when all was said and done, he really did get just what he wanted. As he was trying them on, you could tell by the look on his face that those shoes were the lucky ones.

Unlike days before, that boy went off to school this morning knowing that he didn't have a care in the world. Luck was on his side. He was wearing it.

Oh goodie! If he got the orange Converse you can tell him a mother of almost 10 children just purchased orange converse last week for herself and she wears them proudly. No wonder her week has been great! :)
