I am not sure it is strength so much as courage and hope for happiness. I think of Rose Kennedy and how she might have been weary at 100 with the various losses and all so public. At each loss, I had to go on. To look after my father because I told Mom I would, to be strong to look after Dad's affairs because I missed out on stopping his suicide, to hope for my daughter's return although I know she is not coming home. And now, someone has to take care of my tiny baby in case my husband does not live long--I see my husband and my little son as a reward for having hope on the darkest of days and it is my task to care for them. I am not religious at all but still, the story of footprints does inspire us to trudge on.
