We're only on Season Two of Little House on the Prairie. There are seven seasons all together.
Patricia Neal plays this woman who is dying and needs to find a family for her children. She tells Charles, "I don't want someone to take my children out of pity for them. Pity wears out pretty quick, and it's a poor substitute for love."
God, help me to love my children well. Some days are harder than others. Help my life to represent Christ to them.
