Abigail of Green Gables?

When Abigail was five, we lived in a different place. There was a young woman who attended our church that took Abigail under her wing despite the fact that there was at least a 10 year age difference between them. Kate let Abigail help in the kitchen while preparing for fellowship meals. She and Abigail walked hand in hand to Sunday School each week. And then we moved. The girls became pen pals. Kate would send Abigail beautiful handmade cards. Abigail treasured each and every one of them. And then Kate moved, and went to college. They lost touch.

We saw some friends on Sunday that are also friends with Kate's family. Abigail asked Mrs. Cxxxx for Kate's address, and Mrs. Cxxxx emailed it to her. This afternoon, as I was clearing sent messages out of my email, I came across Abigail's reply to Mrs. Cxxxx.

She sent the note on the cutest stationary with two little girls eating ice cream sundaes. Yes, I think she could live in Avonlea!

What a thoughtful little girl you have! And I'm a big Anne of Green Gables fan, too. I listened to several of the series last year on audiobook, and it was really refreshing compared to a lot of the books being written today.
