Little House on the Prairie: Words of Wisdom

"There is no comfort anywhere for anyone who dreads to go home."
“The true way to live is to enjoy every moment as it passes, and surely it is in the everyday things around us that the beauty of life lies.” 

“A good laugh overcomes more difficulties and dissipates more dark clouds than any other one thing.”  

That Mrs. Wilder was one smart lady. We have had such a lovely month re-reading her beautiful works. My daughters have been enthralled with "Little House in the Big Woods," and "Little House on the Prairie." But my second little lady came to me with the BFG and asked me to read it to her today (Mind you, she only knows how to say approximately 4 words, but BFG is apparently one of them) And so I can see, it is time to move on.

(And no, July will not be 'The BFG' month.)

Check back tomorrow for our farewell to Laura Ingalls Wilder from the Apple orchard.
See you soon!


  1. Everytime you write "Little House on the Prairie" I feel I've come Home.

    Some words have that power and some people the power to make us dream and trust.

    You have a Gift. A Generous one.

    Thank you.

  2. What a wonderful quote. I have so enjoyed the Laura Ingalls Wilder/Little House on the Prairie series! Such a beautiful and inspiring blog series as always. ~ Jamie

  3. Love, love, love these. Wish we could take a trip back in time to the Little House days, but we can have a little piece of that when we visit here!

  4. Such wonderful quotes, much truth and wisdom there. Great thoughts to start the day with!
