Just less than two centuries ago, the government of the #unitedstates
gave away a piece of land for free for those who had the courage to leave their #comfortzone
to drive their #wagon
to the new place and built their own #houses
Laura was only 15(?) when she took the #job
teaching living with the opposite of what she knew all her life , warmth and kind #family
. The bitter couple who fought and treated her not too kindly. She was home sick but she persevered so her blind sister could go to the #blindschool
that her mom discovered and wanted Mary to attend.
One summer an #indian
came to their #homesweethome
to warn them about #longwinter
Because the indian knew how to interact with and reading the sign of nature wonder while her mom was petrified expecting the worse when he showed up while pa was away.
It was the longest #winter
It was every Sunday afternoon as a child I saw the #tvseries
and still remember their opening theme of the song being played at the beginning 🤣
