Today, when I got home from school Frank had supper cooked....this was nice since I had three classes of tests to grade plus three classes of portfolios. Sigh...that is what happens when you have to be out. You give the students work and somebody has to grade it. I came in crashed on the couch. I was exhausted. Frank told me that whenever I was ready he would put the noodles on. I just wanted to veg. While I was vegging....he dropped to one knee beside me (and no he did not propose....he did that a long time ago.)....nope....he told me that he was aware that I had had a lot on me....my mom, court, falling, moving, leaving my friends.....and he brought out a jewelry box from behind his back I opened it excitedly and there....inside the box was a beautiful sterling silver cross with a heart on it. I cried. Men...you can't live with them sometimes....but you definitely can't live without him. Ok...all you southern girls...you know what to say, "Ah isnt he precious?" Well...right now....I think he is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Thank you baby for the unexpected gift....it made my day. Whatever I did to deserve this man....I hope I never stop.
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.
