Every now and then bad things happen to good people. You know there are those moments when no matter how hard we try we have no control over events in our life. With that said that is just exactly what happened to my main character, Timmy(name has been changed) one morning not so long ago. It seems that our main character got a 4:00 a.m. phone call from the local nursing home where his dad resided. The staff needed him to come down and help them settle his dad down. So, Timmy got up, dressed, grabbed his lemonade jug from the fridge, downed it and headed off. The story actually unfolds a little bit later when Timmy heads home. After leaving the nursing home he felt sick, he was sweating, he was nauseated, his stomach was rolling unmercifully. Luckily his office was closer than his house so he decided to head there......but it was too late. The damage was done.....without his permission. Fortunately his office is in a rural area and he was able to pull into the back and try to hose himself off. He ended up cutting his underwear off his body and hosed himself down. He was a mess. Once he had cleaned up and changed he called his wife and asked her about the lemonade he had downed that morning. It was her response that made this story so priceless. She replied with the fact that she had NOT made him lemonade that morning. The "lemonade" he had consumed was in fact HER colonoscopy morning drink.Oh this is priceless! This is something that would happen to me. So, now I have to ask.....has something like this ever happened to you?
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.
