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.

Blessings,

Laura
