Prompt from yesterday: “Footsteps”

The reminiscent people from the Daily Post group of Word Press came up with yesterday’s prompt of “Footsteps“.

Made me Think of a Song

I remembered from when I was little playing on the radio.  Came across a poem that had the lyrics I remembered from back then by Mary Stevenson in 1936.  There have been many releases by various singers of this poem set to music, but they all were females.  The release I remembered was a male artist.

After a little more research came across another link to a song by Edgel Groves.  Listened to it and it turned out to be the song I remembered.  Here it is “Footprints in The Sand“!  Remember riding with my mom in the car while the song by Mr. Groves played on the AM/FM radio.

Sand and I are no longer good friends.  Hate the way it bogs my wheelchair down.  Also do not like when it gets tracked all over the house.  Reminds me too much of clean cat litter.  Granted it beats dirty used cat litter!

Please Help Fight Malicious Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

    Even though other people posted that Mary Stevenson wrote the poem, “Footprints in the Sand”, so they could receive royalties on their book about Mary, it was never proven who wrote it and was anonymous when I recorded it and Buckner and Garcia the producers put music to it. A judge ruled it was a National treasure and no one could claim ownership. I was the first or original artist to record it and the only artist that ever charted with it. The record exploded the poem into an entity of its’ own!!
