I spent the day with my two youngest granddaughters. We went to Mansfield to see the home of Laura Ingals Wilder. It was a great day.
No matter how many motivational speakers I hear, a trip to her home is always encouraging. When the guide says she began writing her famous 'Little House' books at the age of sixty-five, I grab those words with hope in my heart.
To see how she wrote is humbling. No computer, not even a typewriter. She wrote on Big Chief tablets. And it worked. People around the world fell in love with her books long before there was a television show. Her books are wonderful and her life inspiring.
That is how I spent my day off. Now back at it, with renewed hope.
