The Real Me

Chloe and I recently listened to an audio version ofAnne of Green Gables.
The story was fantastic and Chloe loved it!!
(Thanks Julie!!)

Mrs. Cadbury: Tell me what you know about yourself.
Anne Shirley: Well, it really isn't worth telling, Mrs. Cadbury... but if you let me tell you what I IMAGINE about myself you'd find it a lot more interesting.

I thought this line was so funny because there are many times in my life that I don't share of the real me for fear that if others knew the real me, they would run away!!

Do you have special friends in your life that know the real you and love you anyway?


  1. Yikes. Kyle knows some characteristics of me that I am pretty sure no one else would want to know! Also my college roommates- they got to hear me talk in my sleep regularly, apparently I frequently dream of flying giraffes...

  2. I LOVE that book, and that comment is perfect! There are a few that know me and love me for exactly what I am, and for that I cherish them above all else.

  3. I LOVE that quote!!! My sister knows the real me and she still loves me just the same. :) Thanks so much for stopping by the party and leaving a comment. I LOVE turquoise and chocolate brown together! :)

  4. I have those few precious people in my life whom I cherish because I can be so honest and not fear their reaction.

    I love Anne of Green Gables. This makes me want to go back and read them all again. :)
