Mother’s Day With Anne and Marilla

Mothers come to us in all shapes and sizes. Some are there from the very beginning, and others come to us later in life to show us the exact sort of love that we’ve always needed. This Mother’s Day, celebrate that special bond with an “Anne of Green Gables” marathon and a few of our favorite Anne and Marilla moments.

New “Anne of Green Gables” viewers, read with caution - spoilers are ahead!

When kindred spirits were discovered …


Marilla: I know I should be angry. I should be furious. What a way to behave your first day at school! But, if you promise me that nothing of the sort will happen again, I won’t say another word about it.
Anne: You’re not going to send me back?
Marilla: I’ve come to a decision. Trial is over. You will stay at Green Gables.
Anne: Marilla!
Marilla: I think you may be a kindred spirit after all.

When hearts found homes …


When love was more than enough …


When new seasons came …


When we realized love changes us all.


... especially at the hardest times.
