I cried because I had no shoes, and then I met a man who had no feet.


the wise grows it under his feet.”
James Oppenheim

My imperfections and failures
are as much a blessing from God
as my successes and my talents
and I lay them both at his feet.”
Mahatma Gandhi


I cried because
I had no shoes,
then I met
a man who had no feet.”

Always something fun
going on at I heart faces.
Dash over there!
And enter a picture
of feet.
Do you like feet?
If I am honest,
I'd have to admit...
they CrEeP me out
a little bit!

Also I love your entry! You always have such fascinating stories and poems! I don't know how you do it!

My oldest sister (Janine) is the same way. She can hardly stand to even clip her own toe nails. Cracks me up!

I love that quote. Excellent reminder to be grateful for what you have.

I love your feet photo. I just imagine best buds hanging out enjoying the freedom of summer.

Girl, you are so creative! Love the pic (the bruises...ah,those are some hard-playin' kids!) and the quote. And your comment cracks me up.. yeah, I have friends who don't like feet so much, too. Well, YOU'RE a friend, so now I have another one! :<)
Good luck...

Great quotes!

LOVE the top one!

heidiannie said...

I like feet. And your picture is so evocative of mid-summer with all of the scrapes and bruises- I like the hands in the picture too- was that to make up for the "creepiness" of feet?

American Mum said...

Love it! Very HDRish!

TRICIA @boutellefamilyzoo said...

What beautiful photos! I love the quotes along with them.
I am searching my photos to find feet shots. It's my first week and I'm a bit behind on the times. {No internet all weekend} Aargh!
Your music is great too. My two y.o. broke into instant dancing! ;)
Thanks for stopping by "The Zoo". Have a wonderful day!

mamamia said...

I'm with you...I hate feet!! So taking a picture of them never really occurred to me until they threw this little theme at us!

Your shot is amazing!! A perfect b&w conversion!

jen@odbt said...

I love the quotes you posted with the picture and the the texture on your photo. The middle kid looks like my daughter's shins - full of bruises. Comes with the territory of having fun.

4 Lettre Words said...

Love those tough boy legs and feet! Look at the bruises!

julie said...

I LOVE the first photo! So simple and yet so meaningful... plus the bruises on the legs definitely scream "BOY!" :) Your photos are beautiful as always!

Jennifer Bowen said...

I have missed you and your blog!!! Your photography has grown so much in such a short period of time. Love the music, too. Great feet photo... nice conversion, too. :)

I love feet. SO I'm the opposite to you.
I do love you photo though.

Pumpkin Delight said...

Oh, not so much a feet person. They don't bother me too much unless I think about them. Thanks for that. :)

Tiaras said...

quite a lovely quote to go along with that pair of feet

Awdrey said...

I just love all of your feet pictures, even if they do creep you out.

H.K. said...

What a great quote & great pictures to go along with it! When you start complaining about the things you don't have there others with a lot less. Great reminder!

Katie said...

You would hate my feet. Two of my toes are slightly joined and so are Drew's. My moms too they are cute though (: Mine are painted though so that is good.

Grandma J said...

You are amazing with your photos and quotes!

I had no internet or cell phone signal in VA. Seriously, if you didn't have Verizon you were out of luck...and no wifi!

I missed reading your blog every day!!

That's a truly gorgeous photograph! I have to admit that I sort of purposefully picked one with shoes on for this challenge. :)

Jeremi said...

By far the coolest entry I've seen -- great pics and quotes too! Off topic, but the photo of your family is great, such true happiness : )

DawnS said...

Amazing photo!!

Mel Fraase said...

Beautiful. And the quotes bring tears to my eyes!!

Ms. Latina said...

Not a part of this meme group but I'm commenting because I really like the quotes on this post, esp. Gandhi. Its true that God perfects us through the fire, I wouldn't be who I am without those trials and I thank HIM for guiding me, EVEN when I was stubborn and insolent, which has lessen but is still ummm quite a bit LOL

Have a blessed day!

mimi said...

Wow, that is an awesome quote. Really makes you think, huh?!

Your pictures are always wonderful!!

I hope the "boy fighting" has calmed down. Makes for a fun day doesn't it. Oh, I know!
