When Frank came into my life so did another daughter and son-in-law. Amy and Stephen have been a total delight to me. Amy has become my dear friend and has allowed me to share in her life without baggage. She is an amazing cook. I love to visit with them....what she can do in a kitchen is unbelieveable. She loves Ole Time Pottery...my favorite store. She is a good reading buddy AND she is willing to share books with me...we have similar tastes in reading and we both have a fascination for the Queens of England. We talk books, we play Wii together, she loves fairies(and secretly so do I...because I love hunting them for her), she is funny, she is a red head (and I am partial to them), she is so much like her father....that I can truly say I am blessed to have been given another daughter. I wish I could have known her when she was younger and I wish I could have shared in her life from the start...but I didn't. It was not my season to walk the same path with her....but I have been given this season to share in her life and for that I am blessed. It is not everyday that a mom is given another precious gift of a daughter (or son). I am a fortunate one....as Mother's Day approaches....I have been given a wonderful gift of a very special red haired daughter.....who makes my family and life complete.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
