Anne of Green Gables

Have you ever seen that movie? Or the sequels?!

Somehow through all the craziness of school, at times I should have been blogging, and other times when I should have been sleeping... I managed to watch Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea. I am currently (at this second) watching Anne of Green Gables The Continuing Story.

I LOVE these movies! They are like a dream. My sister is the one who got me stuck on them and I'm so glad she did!!

I often feel as if I've been sucked into the movie, setting there next to Anne and Gil while she breaks her slate over his head.

It is just a delightful, moving story. There are so many good quotes in these movies and I didn't even write them down... but I know they are there!

I found myself dreaming of living in those times and in Avonlea. It seems  so care free and perfect. Although, I know no one's life is perfect or care free... watching these movies pulled a lot of stress off of my shoulders!

In Anne of Avonlea, Anne goes to a college, Kingsport College, to be their English Professor. The principle at this college, Katherine, is mean, crude, and not willing to get along with anyone. The way that Anne handled Katherine's rude remarks and horrible attitude gave me a new outlook on how to treat people that want nothing to do with nice people that have a 'kindred spirit'! I will no longer be poisoned by other people's bitterness- just as Anne said.

I recommend these movies to anyone that loves a good laugh, love stories, and poetry. Her words will capture you as well, I'm sure of it!

"Tomorrow is always fresh.....there are no mistakes in it."

"Life's to short to hold grudges."

"God knows best."

I've never seen the movie, but I've read the book...LOVE it! It's been years since I read it, and you've inspired me to pick it up again. Happy weekend to you, Molly!

You've got to read the books. If you think the movies are good, which they are, just wait until you've read the books.

My mom always tried to get me into them when I was younger, & I just never could. Maybe I'll try them again!

You have given me reason to purchase more books. I am going to look into her books first, and then hunt for the movies. Thanks, I just love your blogs.
