Today we went to Burlington. For those who don’t know what is that, well... it is a huge discount store, Burlington Coat Factory. They have very few coats... lol... but a lot of other stuff, from socks to jewelry and gourmet grocery.
So, my daughter and I were looking for some sandals. They have hundreds and hundreds of pairs!
I was trying to take pictures when nobody was between the racks, so it was kind of difficult, as the store was packed of shopping customers, trying shoes on.
How many shoes a person can have? I have a few pairs myself, maybe 6 or so, and I think it is too much. My daughter has a full closet, I think she is crazy. But all young girls are like that. It is the trend I guess.
I picked up some sandals. I saw many people pushing carts full of various merchandise, and I swear I saw shoe boxes in almost every shopping cart. What is going on?
A proverb came in my mind: I complained that I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.
Guess what? I put those sandals back on the rack and I left. I don’t need another pair of shoes. That’s vanity. I am grateful that I have feet, and I have health, and I can walk and be free.
