Hello! It’s time for another Blogmas Book Quote!
Today I’m sharing a lovely little quote from LM Montgomery’s short story, A Christmas Inspiration. It is one of the stories featured in A Vintage Christmas, and it has been one of my favorites from the entire collection that I’ve read so far. It is such a sweet story about giving and thinking of others, especially about those who often feel forgotten, and it just warmed my heart while reading it.
“How lovely the world is,” said Jean.
“This is really the very happiest Christmas morning I have ever known,” declared Nellie. “I never felt so really Christmassy in my inmost soul before.”
“I suppose,” said Beth thoughtfully, “that it is because we have discovered for ourselves the old truth that it is more blessed to give than to receive. I’ve always known it, in a way, but I never realized it before.”
“Blessing on Jean’s Christmas inspiration,” said Nellie. “But, girls, let us try to make it an all-the-year-round inspiration, I say. We can bring a little of our own sunshine into Miss Allen’s life as long as we live with her.”
