I have always wanted to meet Laura Ingells Wilder. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be her. As a child, she was my idol. Her life seemed to be so interesting and I was always sort of depressed that I couldn't ever experience things like that for the first time.
I remember talking to my great grandma one time about the changes in her life because I thought it was so cool that she was born before airplanes, televisions, cars, and things like that. I think the main reason for my fascination about Laura Ingalls Wilder was the fact that she was able to experience for the firs time, things I have always taken for granted. I thought it was so sad for her that she died just a couple of days after she got a new refrigerater for her house. It was a birthday present from her daughter
The other part that I really liked about her was that no matter what she went through, life was still a joy. I wish more of us could look at life like that.
