I got some unexpected gifts last night! The ladies from XposeHope came in for a visit and they all gave us gifts but I got something especially for me. A book about Astrid Lindgren.....
Astrid was from Sweden and she wrote the story about Pippi Långstrump and I LOVE Pippi.
I also got a Pippi wig. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! ❤️ Inside the book I found a handwritten message to me from Betty, the founder of XposeHope.
Astrid wrote many amazing stories for children and adults, I have read most of them growing up in Sweden. I especially remember and get emotional over Brödena Lejonhjärta.
Astrid is very loved in Sweden.

Here is Pippi with her gold coins. Why is Pippi an amazing role model for girls? She is strong willed, outspoken, independent and she loves and cares for animals.
Pippi är bäst (Pippi is the best).

Famous Pippi quotes,

"He’s the strongest man in the world.’
‘Man, yes,’ said Pippi, ‘but I am the strongest girl in the world, remember that."

"I don’t think you have a very nice way with ladies,’ said Pippi. And she lifted him in her strong arms — high in the air — and carried him to a birch tree and hung him over a branch. Then she took the next boy and hung him over another branch. "

"Don’t you worry about me. I’ll always come out on top."

Thank you ladies for all your hard work and your thoughtful gifts. You are appreciated! ❤️
