Day 198: New Old Shoes!

So, I bought some really cute new shoes last December for church. I wore them very proudly, just waiting for the compliments to roll in.


I've worn them several times since and nobody ever says anything. So, I began thinking they must not be cute to anyone else. That surprised me because I LOVE them and HH helped pick them out and he has good taste. But I consoled myself with the fact that we both think they're cute and moved on.

I wore them today and thought nothing of it. Until a friend said, very enthusiastically, "Cute shoes! Are they new?" I said, "No," but I was thrilled that finally a compliment rolled in. And then another friend, or two also noticed and complimented. I'm not really sure what the difference was, but I was glad to finally have my taste validated. And it's always fun to get compliments!

Wishing you all validating Joyful Moments!

Lots of joys today - We attended our ward in New York for the first time in 2 months! And one of the temple presidency and his wife were visiting! And we got to fast which really has come to mean rejoicing to me.
