      "Walk a Mile in My Shoes Someday" This photo will make any intelligent, thoughtful person stop and think. Great photographs have a way of telling a story while making us see the world in a new light. via reubenmiller.typepad.com

      This is a Symbolic meaning this picture has meaning of poverty,the water bottles as shoes is a symbol of being humble and have no means to buy shoes.This is our problem. Do we seriously need 300 dollar shoes? when there are people using water bottles as shoes. Its sad but third world countries give u a different perspective look at life..

      I complain not having enough shoes while this man has none. I must learn to be thankful for everything I have.

      This picture is heart wrenching. It's disturbing how much we take simple things such as shoes for granted, all the while, others don't even have one pair of shoes on their feet. Please my dear brothers and sisters thank God for what you have and pray for those who don't have these essential materials. And let this be a daily reminder to all of us to be GRATEFUL every day for what we have!

      Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes. My mate Paul made me laugh with that one ~ However, look at the picture for a message of respect and compassion ♥ now look at this and ask yourself WHAT CAN I BE GRATEFUL FOR TODAY? https://www.facebook.com/notes/rose-evans/something-to-thank-about/279452252095902

      When I do my gratitude journel, I would have never thought to be grateful for shoes... until now.

      I need this reminder every day. Every. single. day. I need to remember the blessings that I have in my life. We always think of these simple needs including clothes, food, clean water, a house to come home to but another basic need that we may take for granted is shoes. Seen from this picture above he has created shoes from bottles and rope and most people in third world nations don't even have this 'luxury' of created shoes.. They simply don't have any. That's why I feel the need to be thankful and appreciative even more so that my needs are met. Be thankful for everything around me. The opportunities that I have available. What I have and who I have in my life and most of all that I have an Amazing God that has done this all for me!

You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked 'female'." - Erin McKean
