[For the 48-HOUR CHALLENGE: Media Prompt (Music Video: "Carry On" by Fun)]
The lyrics to this song remind me of my mother-in-law. She wasn't lost, but she was alone, her husband having died in 2008. She dealt with medical issues of her own--two hip replacements, back surgery, shoulder surgery, as well as the cancer that eventually beat her in 2014--but she never gave up. She carried on.
Truly, her past was the sound of her feet upon the ground, as she left a trail of loving relationships from coast to coast: siblings, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins. She was a shining star in the lives of those who loved her, and her invincible spirit lives on in their hearts.
