Green toes

This past July, after World Youth Day our group made a two day stop over in Hawaii. The pilgrimage continued with discussion sessions at the beach, and daily Mass, but we also took the time to let our hair down with a Luau. For the festivities I picked up a flowery dress and matching green polish. Being a traditionally non-dressy, no make up or paint type of person, I was going all out for the event.

Over the many months of showers, sandals and swimming, only two small flecks of green adorn my toes. I look for them in the shower, asking, Are they still there? Did we really go?

Truly, I don't need two small chips of toe paint to know my life was changed forever. But it does suggest that I can let my hair down every once in a while.
