“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day

“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it?” Anne of Green Gables is such an iconic book and timeless book written by Lucy Maud Montgomery published in 1908 but originally set in 1876-81. Anne of Green Gables is a book written for us to grow up with Anne Shirley (the main character) , to grow with her through her mistakes and to enjoy every success. It shows us that life isn’t always perfect and that things happen that aren’t ideal but that there is always tomorrow, that can and will be better if in your mind you want it to be.

“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive—it’s such an interesting world.” Anne Shirley is such an optimistic soul, so creative and positive. Her situation, having lived in orphanage after orphanage and then finally being adopted by a family, so she would finally have a family and then finding out they wanted a boy instead of a girl, you would expect this young girl to be always unhappy, ungrateful and unpleasant to be around. This is very much not the case for young Anne, although she has her fair amount of lessons she needs to learn she attempts “to devote all my energies to being good after this… I do really want to be good, Marilla, like you and Mrs. Allan and Miss Stacy, and grow up to be a credit to you.”
