I have decided that it is time for a re-read of one of my favorite childhood books, Anne of Green Gables. I loved this book so much as I child I even begged my parents until they agreed to take me to Prince Edward Island one summer. This quote, from page 56 in my edition, is a great part of the book where Marilla decided to allow Anne to stay at Green Gables. If you haven’t yet read this book, you really should.
From Anne of Green Gables by L M Montgomery:
I’ve been thinking over the idea until I’ve got kind of used to it.
It seems a sort of duty. I’ve never brought up a child, especially a girl,
and I dare say I’ll make a terrible mess of it. But I’ll do my best.
So far as I’m concerned, Matthew, she may stay.
I'm linking up with the Friday 56, so I'll invite you to go grab a book and join the fun.
