Anne

A friend of mine told me the other day that I should really start blogging again. It seems there isn't enough time in my day for that anymore, but here I am attempting to fulfill her wish...or rather request....

This friend of mine I believe said she wanted me to blog about the books I am reading. It could have been my idea too I honestly don't remember now. If you know me, or know me well I read all the time. So if I have time to read I have time to blog right?

I am currently reading Anne of Green Gables. I am sure a many of you have read this before, but I haven't. I know about it of course, but never actually read it. I am about a quarter of the way through and I am amazed at how much I love it. Can we all just go back to when things (life) was simple. No TV, Internet, etc..... I think I would really enjoy myself. I know the modern conveniences are quite nice and all, and people worked so much harder back then, which in turn I believe they loved more. It could be just me and my own crazy imagination. I think I am a lot like Anne actually. My imagination runs wild. I am not even half as outspoken as her though. If you have ever read the book you know that Anne thinks up things to suit her situation when it's not so pleasing. I DO THAT! She pays attention to ALL the little details of everything around her. You may not know it but I do that too. I can relate to her personality so much, although I hardly remember what I was like at 11, I believe it was a little like her.

Back in the day things were so much simpler. There weren't as many options. Everyone got along better BECAUSE of that. Now we are given all these oportunities which CAN be a great thing... but when co-habitation before marriage is so rampant, and adultery is acceptable and widely spread, and men lust after other women making their wives feel insecure, and people are honestly breaking the law left and right...when we have child abuse, and murder all around us... I DREAM ABOUT ANNE OF GREEN GABLES days! <3

Love ya, Lisa! Thanks for posting!

PS- this 'friend' of yours was right! ;)
