"No spring is ever just like any other spring. It always has something of its own..."
—Anne Shirley/L.M. Montgomery
Anne of Green Gables: Prince Edward Island
Happy birthday to one of my favorite literary characters: L.M. Montgomery's Anne Shirley. Anne's birthday is noted as occurring in mid-March.
I think Anne's story is a lot like spring—she overcame hardships to find her own place during this season celebrated for its new life and hope.
In spring, there's a feeling of expectation and change. It's the perfect time to get started on fulfilling a dream.
When Anne Shirley was born in mid-March, the road ahead soon became dark and difficult. Even during the hardships, she refused to give up her imagination and she found spring.
