Almost two years ago, I bought Anne of Green Gables for Lucy. I never read the book and heard great things about it. I thought she would enjoy it. I think she read one chapter.
A couple of weeks ago, I ran out of my library reading material, so I decided I would read it.
And it left me with one question….
Why haven’t I read this book before???
I love it.
I absolutely love it.
I’m not done with it though, because I restocked at the library and worked through some new books. Sometimes I like to take a break in the middle of a story.
This book is really beautiful and has some lovely reflections about life.
There have been moments where I have gotten teary, and this quote absolutely made me cry.
Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.
And then I rubbed my eyes, after I had been touching red pepper earlier, and I was really crying.
As an introvert, it can be hard connecting with people. I like to be alone or with my people. The people who know me best.
This past year has stretched me, being in a new space with a grieving heart.
What I have found is that there are some really lovely people around me. Brand new people. People from before that I have gotten to know. And my old faves.
These kindred spirits make me laugh.
We are silly together.
We can be still together.
They keep me connected to who I am and who I want to be.
So that quote, I was so touched by it. I was so grateful that my reality includes kindred spirts…that I cried.
I hope you live in a world with kindred spirits too.
