Wisdom From Anne

Which would you rather be if you had the choice - divinely beautiful, or
dazzingly clever or angelically good?

L.M. Montgomery

I've been hiding in my house again because I'm neither Divinely Beautiful, Dazzlingly Clever or Angelically Good. If I could be just ONE of these things, I think people would excuse my poor behavior.

If you were Divinely Beautiful people would overlook that you can't think on your feet and say the right thing at the right time.

If you were Dazzlingly Clever, you would always say just the right thing!

If you were Angelically Food, well -- nothing would go wrong would it?

In Anne of Green Gables, Anne doesn't think she could pick just one of these three amazing traits. But as I've been thinking about it since Sunday (Disaster Day), I want to be Dazzlingly Clever! Divinely Beautiful sounds like too much upkeep and Angelically Good sounds a tad to boring.

I'm praying for Dazzlingly Clever!

(I think there may be some offended people out there who are hoping I get this too - sorry)

When I think of first thoughts are: dazzlingly clever!
Your prayers are answered.

I think you're right..."angelically good" would be too boring ;)
