Welcome back to Member Monday. It’s with heavy hearts that we feature a piece by Gayle Madden. She recently passed away and we offer our sincere condolences to her husband, Michael. While we mourn Gayle’s passing, we celebrate her life, a life well-lived indeed. This is the second of two pieces by Gayle we featured this month and we encourage you to read more of her body of work at her blog, aptly titled The Sweet Life: La Dolce Vita. -Writers Forum Board of Directors

I finally know what it’s like to walk a mile in my shoes!
In January of 2011, my husband, Michael, bought me a new pair of pretty RED ones as a surprise. The surprise turned out to be I wouldn’t wear them until recently, 14 months later. But what a sweet walk it was!
The shoes are magical.
Just ask Debbie, our adventurous friend who joined us. She has a pair of magical shoes, too.
Magical Shoes are made to keep a traveler afloat in a storm. I wore out my last pair!
You might think I need a really big size to weather my current storm, but part of the magic is that one size fits all. Another part of the magic is that we all have magic shoes.
What color are yours?
