The Little House on the Prairie
books and TV show were a huge part of my childhood, and Laura's heartwarmingly simple descriptions will forever charm my imagination. I just read through this
informative, picture-filled post, and this
post about her faith, both in celebration of her would-be 150th birthday.
“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness--just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”
--Laura Ingalls Wilder (February 7th, 1867--Februrary 10th, 1957, age 90)
