“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed;
persecuted, but not abandoned;
struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
My first pair of Uggs, at least 14 years old and very battered, have gone the way of all things. I’ll not throw them away, but will give them a place of honor in the back of the closet. This so they cannot see the new pair of Uggs that are happily on my feet.
1995 is a lifetime away. So much has happened since then it’s almost surreal to think of it. A husband come and gone; a life in the Florida Keys come and gone; a new life begun in Southern California.
So it’s a new era, with new boots to match.
