this dream come true

Edward Wellman bade' good-bye to his family in the old country and headed for a better life in America.Papa handed him the family's savings hidden in a leather satchel.‘Times are desperate here Neo Derm Beauty Box," he said, hugging his son good-bye. "You are our hope." Edward boarded the Atlantic freighter offering free transport to young men willing to shovel coal in return for the month-long journey. If Edward struck gold in the Colorado Rockies, the rest of the family could eventually join him.

For months, Edward worked his claim tirelessly,and the small vein of gold provided a moderate but steady income. At the end of each day, as he walked through the door of his two-room cabin, he yearned for‘the woman he loved to greet hits. Leaving Ingrid behind before he could officially court her had been his only regret in accepting this American Adventure.

Their tanily had been Friends for years and for as long as he could remember, he had secretly hoped to make lngrid his wife. I ler lone. flowing hair and radiant smile made her the most beautiful of the I lenderson sisters. I le had just begun sitting by her at Church picnics and making up silly reasons to stop by her house,just he could her. As he went to sleep in his cabin each night. Edward longed to stroke her auburn hair and hold her in his arms. Finally, he wrote to Papa, asking him to help make this dream come true Neo Derm Beauty Box.

After nearly a year, a telegraph came with a plan to make his life complete. Mr. Hcnderson had agreed to send his daughter to Edward in America. Because she was a hardworking young woman with a good mind for business, she would work alongside Edward for a year to help the mining business grow. By then both families could afford to come to America for their wedding.

Edward's heart soared with  joy as he spent the next month trying to snake the cabin into a home. He brought a cot for him to sleep on in the living area and tried to make his former bedroom suitable for women. Floral cloth from flour sacks replaced the burlap-bag curtains covering the grimy window. He arranged dried sage from the meadow into a tin-can vase on the nightstand.

At last, the day he had been waiting for his whole life arrived. With a bouquet of fresh-picked daisies in hand, he left for the train depot. Steam billowed and wheels screeched as the train crawled to a stop Neo Derm Beauty Box. Edward scanned every window looking for lngrid's glowing hair and smile.
