Let Them Eat Cake.


This blog is officially one year old.  Okay, one year and two days, but I figured you didn’t want to celebrate the BIG BLOG BASH on your very coveted Saturday.  I certainly didn’t want to give up my laundry and trip to the Red Carpet Car Wash.

So, here’s the celebration, folks.  Let’s party.

I said LET’S PARTY!!

Man, we are rock stars. 

You probably notice the little facelift I gave my dotcom.  I let my mom take a sneak peak yesterday. 

“Oh, it’s nice,” she said very convincingly. 

It seems my mom misses Anna’s cute little feet at the top of the page.  I’ve agreed to randomly change the pictures out from time to time.  FOR.MY.MOTHER.  Because, I’m a good daughter like that.  And, she’ll fly out here and keep my kids on a moment’s notice.

When I first began this blog, the thought occurred to me that I may have nothing to write about every single weekday.  Of course, you may be thinking, “Um, you don’t have anything to write about.”  Bigmama would tell you, “You better hush.” 

As a mother, you know we are never short on stories.  And, as long as Anna Takle is Anna Takle, there will always be a post that might make you chuckle – or just feel the need to pray for me J

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my little life and journey with our big God as much as I’ve enjoyed writing about them.  Life is hard enough to not share it with friends. 

For real.

    Seriously….yes this is Judy…you will probably never know how sharing about “your little life” has strengthened the life of others and given them hope and as my little Grasshopper says “HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT”… Love you!

    Congrats on a year bloggin’! You does good. And the new look, I like.

    BTW, saw Bigmama yesterday, and got a great big hug. She looks great, and is very proud of her age-and she should be! Ya got some great genes there.
    I told her I loved keeping up w/ her from your blog, and she told me “she was going to get you.” (But you can tell she loves it.)

    I’m sure mothers out there are proud of their daughters, but I truly feel that God has blessed me with an amazing and wonderful daughter, who is as beautiful inside as she is out! There is not a day that goes by (yes we talk “several” times every day) that she will say something to me that will touch my heart and life even bring tears to my eyes on most days, that I thank God EVERYDAY for this miracle, blessing and gift He gave me 34 years ago. How can one woman be so blessed? As I have told Dusty before, that God loved me SO much that not only did He send His Son, He sent me “Dusty Leigh” Am I a proud Mom? I want to shout it from the house top and I would if it wouldn’t embarrass Dusty..lol.. Congratulations one your 1st year of blogging and touching so many peoples lives! I love you dearly!
