A Christmas Quote...Laura Ingalls Wilder

"Then Pa and Ma and Mr. Edwards sat by the fire
and talked about Christmas times back in Tennessee and up north in the Big Woods.

But Mary and Laura looked at their beautiful cakes

and played with their pennies and drank water out of their new cups.

And little by little they licked and sucked their sticks of candy,

till each stick was sharp-pointed on one end.

That was a happy Christmas."

~Laura Ingalls Wilder

It's all in how you look at it, isn't it?

Enjoy what you have, where you are, whom you are with now.

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
