Sometimes, my job takes me fun places. Like to the theater on a Saturday evening to see Oliver! When it does, I get to dress the part, wearing my little black dress with faux fur shrug, pearls, and my favorite teal heels. See how fancy I look:
Sometimes, though, I fall. Actually, fairly often. It can never be blamed on the shoes. I’ve worn the shoes above for years and have never had a problem. I don’t usually fall in my highest stilettos. I don’t even fall when my heels break. There is absolutely no explanation for why this happens. But when it does, I go from the classy lady you see pictured above, to this:
If that looks painful, it’s because it was. To my pride, as well as to my knees. And, I was mad because that was a really good pair of panty hose, and I hate buying new ones!
So, let this be a lesson to all of you. No matter how great you look and feel, always hold on to the railing. Don’t be the person that brings Proverbs 16:18 to life. I’ve done it enough for all of us.
