Sassy Shoe Thursday: Dormant

 Dear Strappy Heels and Peep-toed Slingbacks,

I do love the snow. I do. Oh, so much.
But, you looked so sad today sitting on my closet floor.
I know you haven't seen the light of day in quite a few months now, and you're probably getting pretty anxious in there.
I just want to say, you're gonna make it. You'll be fine.
AND, in just a few short weeks, some of you are going to get to come on a trip to a sunny land they call Florida. 
I know it will only be a brief time out in the world, but Spring is just around the corner. So, you can hope that it will be a warmer Spring than I hear it was last year.
But, know that I see you. 
I hear your cries. 
I feel your pain.
Oh, beautiful Taharis that wait so patiently at the forefront. You nary had time to relish your new life on my feet before you were tucked away, kept safe from winter's shoe worries.
And my Bold Strappy Steve's that are hidden from view, I have such big plans for you!

My dear peep toes, you may come out on a warmer-than-usual winter's day, but I know you yearn for more.

My older stand-by's hidden in the corner.
You are not forgotten!
You. are. not. forgotten.

My goldies hiding behind the rest, I know you're there.
Be confident of this.

Now, not all of you will be able to travel to the warm weather that we'll be visiting. 
BUT, the ones that do will report back with stories of hope and dry parking lots.

So, hang in there. You're gonna make it. 
Don't be too jealous of your closed-toed siblings who've been getting all the face time.
Your day will come. Your day will come.
I'll still visit you every day, and hopefully you'll have some new friends moving in soon to make your family even bigger!

Now, enjoy your peaceful slumber.
Summer will come soon enough.
