My SIL's brother recently returned home from a mission. I wanted to make him a welcome home card. When I think of returned missionaries, as I have 5 of my own, they all come home with these treasured shoes. It represents hours and hours of service, love, dedication and sacrifice, to name a few. My only regret on this card is the shoes look to new. I should have roughed them up a bit so they would look like old shoes. Oh well, maybe next time!
