Quote for a Wednesday


"It was so wonderful to be there, safe at home, sheltered from the winds and the cold. Laura thought that this must be a little bit like Heaven, where the weary are at rest. She could not imagine that Heaven was better than being where she was, slowly growing warm and comfortable, sipping the hot, sweet, ginger tea, seeing Ma, and Grace, and Pa and Carrie, and Mary all enjoying their own cups of it and hearing the storm that could not touch them here."

Lovely quote! Watching the snow fall outside is making me want to re-read The Long Winter. This just makes me want to re-read it even more!

That's exactly the way I feel. I'm
due for a re-read of the "Little House" books anyway.
