Many years ago, when Kat was sixish and her friend, Jill was fiveish Deborah(Jill's mom) and I went shopping at Dillards. It is a high end place to shop....you know...the kind of place that actually fits your bras for you. Anyway, Deborah and I were shopping for some lingerie for a lingerie shower when I turned around and discovered that the girls were not with us. Without panicking I walked to the last place we had been(two rows over) and there they were....sitting on the floor in front of a tri-fold mirror....with the cones of a bra on their heads. The funny thing was that they had wrapped the bra around both their heads and hooked it under their chins. This was one of those Kodak moments....and it was way before cell phones with cameras....so the vision is permanently etched in my head...and it was priceless. Kat is now in her 30's, lives with her husband two hours away from me....yet, when I want to get a warm fuzzy feeling, or need a Kat hug, I think about moments like this and it makes me smile. Do you have moments like these that are special memories of your children? Care to share?
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.
