A couple Sundays ago, a little elderly lady in the congregation called me over to her just before the service started. I honestly don't know her name, but since I'm doubting she's a blogger, I can freely admit that. She handed me a brown paper lunch-size sack, with some knitted things sticking out of it.
"For you and the pastor," she said. "I hope his are big enough."
I assumed they were mittens or hats or something, but no... they were slippers. With big balls on the toes! I thanked her profusely, and found the gesture very sweet, but honestly did not figure we would ever wear them. To my surprise, they are amazingly comfy and warm, and I wear them all the time!
The funny thing about her comment is that Matt and I actually have pretty much the same size feet. They stretch, though, so I kindly took the smaller ones.
