Shoelaces And The Christmas Spirit
Tuesday, December 10, 2019
When I was growing up, I often ended up with broken shoelaces. Being the second of six kids meant that there were times Mom just did not make my shoelaces a priority. For some reason, that bothered me to no end. As an adult, I made sure that my kids had new laces when the old ones broke.
I also give shoelaces with my gifts. As silly as it may sound, I don’t want children to have to deal with the broken laces as I did. I've also added hats and mittens to the bags. I wanted the gift to be more than the laces.
