Open Thread: Footprints

If anyone wants context, go here.  Sadly, I have since lost the hat.

I dreamed that I was walking down the beach with the Goddess.
And I looked back and saw footprints in the sand.

But sometimes there were two pairs of footprints, and sometimes there was only one.
And the times when there was only one pair of footprints, those were my times of greatest trouble.

So I asked the Goddess, "Why, in my greatest need, did you abandon me?"

She replied, "I never left you. Those were the times when we both hopped on one foot."
And lo, I was really embarrassed for bothering Her with such a stupid question.
