I’m not the sentimental type, but when our son outgrew his first pair of baby shoes I decided to have them bronzed – separately.
I gave one shoe to my mother-in-law who was then a widow, and the other shoe to my parents.
Years later when my mother-in-law died we took back her shoe, and when both my folks were gone we took back it’s mate.
And now when I see those two bronze shoes standing together on our bookshelf. I think about our son when he was a baby and the grandparents who loved him so much!
