This sweet girl reminds me of Anne of Green Gables. I am reading this classic story right now and enjoying it as much as ever. Marilla seems much more mellow than I had thought of her before. Anyway, books make the most special friends, don't they!

Wishing you a blessed Lord's Day, hope its restful and draws your heart close to God...my wish for myself too.

"I know that my Redeemer liveth, And on the earth again shall stand; I know eternal life He giveth, That grace and power are in His hand." Hymn by Jessie B. Pounds/James H.Fillmore.

You know I noticed that about Marilla too. When I read the books in my teens I thought she was somean. Several years ago I read it again and was amazed that she had changed! LOl I think it was me that changed. As an adult it's easier for us to see the adult perspective. The same thing happened when I reread Heidi. I thought the alm uncle was so meam to her at first. In reading it over he wasnt so mean after all!

Kindred spirits indeed!! I re-read Anne late last year when I was a bit depressed, and it lifted me right up out of that state as usual. I haven't seen any movies or tv shows of the book, so I guess I should go look for them, as I'm sure I would love them as much as the books. By the way, I always felt sorry for Marilla, even when I was a teen. I figured she must have had a hard life to be so embittered, and it was lovely to have Anne come into her life later on.
