    Forgive me for not having posted in so long! Being sick didn’t help matters of course, and neither does being terribly busy all the time, but then again—when does anyone have any “extra” time to spend?
     So—speaking of having extra time, here are a few quotes from L.M. Montgomery that I found from online. Most of them are from Anne of Green Gables though a few are from other novels that she’s written. Each and every book of hers that I’ve read is a delightful balance of inspiration, humor, romance and human eccentricity making the stories come alive with character.

“I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”

“Humor is the spiciest condiment in the feast of existence. Laugh at your mistakes but learn from them, joke over your troubles but gather strength from them, make a jest of your difficulties but overcome them.”

 “Anne: "But have you ever noticed one encouraging thing about me, Marilla? I never make the same mistake twice".
Marilla: "I don't know as that's much benefit when you're always making new ones".”

 And since it is almost my fifteenth birthday.....

“I heard someone once say that the years from fifteen to nineteen are the best years in a girl's life.”
