A Pair of Boots

Seemed like a simple prayer. I prayed that there would be a pair of boots in Anneka’s size at the second-hand store that would be more appropriate for wet, cold weather than the soft boots she had been wearing.

I took a bunch of clothes in she had out-grown, hoping to off-set the cost a bit.

Anneka was at her playgroup when I left, and I had forgotten to measure her feet. But Nate measured the soft shoes she was wearing and gave me the measurement.

I forgot the soft shoes.

When I got to the second hand shop, knowing the inches didn’t help. None of the shoes were labeled by inch, and there were no charts or rulers to help. After scrutinizing 4 pairs of boots and googling sizes that were supposed to match the measurement, I picked the pair I thought looked the closest (even though the size was two sizes smaller than google said it should be).

I got a $9.60 for my baby’s clothes. I thought I probably wouldn’t do that again. I also picked up 3 tops, 3 bottoms and two pairs of stockings. After the credits, including a return credit I must have had, the total was only $10.

We took the shoes home to see how they fit. Instead of telling you, I’ll just show you.

I like to think how God cares about the happiness of a little one-year-old munchkin with her first pair of boots.

And we also got this.

  1. You found such adorable clothes! It makes me want to go to our local children’s consignment shop. I dropped off some stuff a few months ago and might even have some credit there if it sold.
