A Long Time Ago

“When the fiddle had stopped singing Laura called out softly, "What are days of auld lang syne, Pa?"

"They are the days of a long time ago, Laura," Pa said. "Go to sleep, now."

But Laura lay awake a little while, listening to Pa's fiddle softly playing and to the lonely sound of the wind in the Big Woods,…

She was glad that the cozy house, and Pa and Ma and the firelight and the music, were now. They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now. It can never be a long time ago.” 

Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder

  1. Awwwww, La Tea Dah. Don't you love the Little House series, both books and tv shows? Love them. I still enjoy very frequent reruns!

    Take care and have a nice Sunday! Susan
