I am all about the photos this week. My school year is winding down....and to be honest I am glad....this has been one of my toughest years in all 24 that I have taught. I told my boss last week that I hoped he would be around at least one more year....so he could see me in a different light. His first opinion of me has not been the best....he has experienced a Karen who had missing elderly parents, a father who was dying and then died, a favorite aunt who died, and numerous other bad things....I would like him to see me when I am running on all pistons....and not limping into the pit for a pitstop. Anyways....Melinda gave me this one just like the one from my post yesterday.. I have no idea where she captured this one...but talk about having an eye....she really has an EYE! I would have never seen this in a million years....yet, when she showed me the pictures...I saw the heart shining in the heavens. I felt like this was my personal heart...she took this picture around the time my precious Aunt Shirley died....and to me...this picture was my sign....letting me know that Aunt Shirley and my daddy....were A-OK...and I smiled. I keep this picture in my wallet...mine is kind of ragged right now....because when I feel that life is hard....I pull out this heart....and know that I am loved. Have a Blessed Friday! Tomorrow my sweet Kathryn graduates from Auburn Montgomery with her Ed.S and I am going to be the proud mother in the audience. I will make sure to get some pictures of the two of us and post them so you can all see how beautiful she is!(not that I am proud or anything.)
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.
