Isaiah 52:7



these are my feet
i love them
sweetie thinks they're my worst feature
i beg to disagree

when i was little
i distinctly remember
plopping them up inside the tub
and taking joy
in soaping them up really good

they are my dad's feet
we call that toe
the hungry toe

for ten years or eight
i have worn a CTR ring
on that hungry toe
it never comes off

they are always cold


How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!


(sweetie read this post and he takes it all back..."you have no bad features." that's what you get after 36 years. i love him.)

The hungry toe. I love that. I really love that. I love that you honor your body, all of its parts.

Love this! Hungry toe... my girls have one. Glad to know that's what we should call it!
