I love reading about history, especially the history of the American West. An interesting historical tidbit I found recently had me admiring one woman’s brave decision.
Molly Kelley was twenty-four-years-old when she decided to follow her husband who had headed to the goldfields.
She purchased a wagon and a team of mules, packed her household belongings, and set out for Montana Territory in the spring of 1864.
Along the journey, she joined a train of eighty wagons. Molly drove her own team across the plains with her eight-year-old and three-year-old daughters at her side.
This amazing story is inspiring and motivational to face our fears head on, even if it seems to be impossible. I have to wonder what her husband’s reaction was when his wife pulled up.
Join me for my next "Coffee with Lianna", which will post on December 6, 2019.
