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.
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.
