“‘I read somewhere once that souls were like flowers,' said Priscilla. 'Then your soul is a golden narcissus,' said Anne, 'and Diana's is like a red, red rose. Jane's is an apple blossom, pink and wholesome and sweet.’” 

― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

I enjoyed reading to my daughter when she was younger. We would open a book and drift together into a different world. We read all the time: Little Women, The Little Princess, Heidi, the Winnie-the-Pooh books, the Beatrix Potter collection, and the Anne books. We read so much, we could recite portions of each almost perfectly.

I remember one day quite vividly: I was reading Chapter 37—The Reaper Whose Name Is Death from Anne of Green Gables. I started. I paused. I started again. I choked up. No matter how I tried, I couldn't read about the death of Matthew Cuthbert. Tears streamed down my face.

My husband walked in quietly with a box of tissues. He gently handed me the box and took the book. He sat down beside us and read the sadness while I sobbed.

I have always wondered what flower would represent Matthew's soul. Maybe a bluebell to reflect his kindness, care, warmth, and humility?
