I had all here but Granny Hobbie. However, I did have the three next to her. To the right of Granny it's Carrie, Amy, and then Holly Hobbie. I also had Heather not pictured.
I also loved Little House On The Prairie, both books and television show.
I wanted to be Laura in the worst way.
When we went to visit my Great Grandma Rich, we would drive through Kolona, Iowa. This is a small little town where Amish and Mennonites live. I remember a few occasions where we would pass the horse and buggy. Amish quilts in my opinion are such beauty. My first adult job, the company I worked for bought a huge Amish quilt to hang in the lobby of the building. I loved working at the receptionist desk where I could bask in the beauty of the quilt.
I love the closeness they have with one another. How the community works together. I love how they are pure and closeness to God. I love how simple life means so much to them. I envy that in some ways. I wish we had closeness in our family as well as the community. I do love my modern world items though, so I am an Englisher but I think we all could take time to smell the roses and learn from the Amish. Simple Life has it's rewards.
