Anna's Birthday

Posted Nov 01 2010 4:55am

Happy Birthday Anna!!!!! The picture explains it all. She loved us all so much and just enjoyed being with everyone.
It is "All Saints Day" and how appropriate that it falls on Anna's birthday. I don't need November 1 to think of Anna. She is always there in my mind. She taught me so much and her attitude was the best. She would not let anything get her down and always had a smile for you and a happy thought. Anna did not dwell on the negative; she radiated happiness and those around her caught it. She did not put herself first in any situation and was always happy to lend a hand in any way possible. She was the happiest when she was helping others. As a matter of fact, I do not know of a time when she was not helping others, be it a kind word, a thoughtful act or a helpful deed. After she said, "This is the day that the Lord hath made and we will rejoice and be glad in it", she would say, "And how are you this fine morning?" If you weren't fine before you saw her, you became fine very quickly after you were with her. I do believe that Anna is a saint, along with my Father. I am so blessed to have had the parents that I had. I may have written this in an earlier post, but here it is again. We were at the doctor and after x-raying her ankle/ foot, the doctor came and and told Anna she had a broken ankle. He left the room to go get a special shoe for her to wear for healing. Anna looks at me and says, "Where do you want to go for lunch?" I said, "Mama, the doctor says you have a broken ankle." Mama says, "I know, I heard him, where do you want to go for lunch?" A broken foot was not going to stop her from having fun and being with people. She was up for everything and always had a young spirit. Going to Athens and watching the Dawgs play was fun for her. She would always encourage me by saying, "You can do it." I do believe that Anna is watching over my kids, nephews, niece and the family. We are in good hands. I loved saying to Anna, over the phone before I left my house to go to her house, "Don't worry, Mama, we will get everything taken care of when I get there." What would I say to Anna? "Tell Daddy I said, 'Hey' and can yall send me an email, please." I love those people...... and I hope, after you read this, you will too.
