my shoes

i have had this pair of moccasins since junior year in high school. ive worn them at least 6 days a week every week since then. no joke. i know they're just shoes but they have been a trusty companion for 6 years on a daily basis. 
they started unraveling today. 
they're comfy. lasted for quite a while. been a friend of sorts.
im kinda emotional about it almost.
hard to let go of something you rely on even if it's shoes.
this is interesting timing for a few reasons...
i feel like my jump on what could look like the big curly slide at big splash started my junior year. 
its been a crazy twisted downward spiral since then. but then i reached the end and landed in a wonderfully welcoming deep pool of refreshing water this past fall. its been 6 months of being in this body of water.
and now shoes ive worn 6 days a week, for 6 years...started unraveling 6 months after God dunked me.
i think im gunna get baptized again. 
and i think it's time for new shoes.
maybe water proof ones.
