December 20     Touch Your Toes   Funny how we deal with feet.  I have seen a woman cradle hers and treat it like the dearest babe. I know some folks who shun their feet; can barely stand to think of them, let alone to touch them.  There are the Mani-Pedi people who leave...

These feet you see Sometimes aching Sometimes swollen Sometimes planted square Have saved me   They have walked miles in the dark  to work long days Stood in the cold And complained  when my pride wouldn't   They have shuffled  across floors in the middle of the night...
