My daughter posted this on facebook for Mother's Day. It made me cry, it made me smile, it made me comment, but most of all it made me full of love. I adore my daughter.....and I adore her friends. The girl on my right is Jill. She and Kat were inseparable as children. Now many thousands of miles separate them. **Sigh! Life goes on.
"Happy Mothers day to my amazing momma Karen Sasser Harrell Korb(we are facebook friends so my whole name comes up when tagged). You
may not be perfect(What? Not perfect????? Who says?), but you have been the perfect momma for me. You
have taught me so much about life. You were my first and biggest fan(Still am).
You have always pushed me to be the best version of myself and yet, you
have loved me when I was at my worst(When were you ever the worst?). For all the slumber parties where
you would entertain my friends with your beautiful voice and your
guitar, for driving me to Auburn for gymnastics even though I think you
knew I was NOT the next Mary Lou Retton(I plead the 5th on this one), for all our amazing road
trips-especially to Green Gables(one of my favorites....I would go back tomorrow);), for Football games and concert
season, for letting me be my free spirited self(necklaces really do look
better on your head),
for loving my friends, for TEACHING me about
Jesus, for going everywhere I went without being a crazy mom but the
cool mom everyone wanted to sit with, and for seeing in me things I
never knew I could be (I tried not to be a helicopter mom)! I love you so much momma! God knew what he was
doing when he made you my momma!!!!!!!!(And He knew what he was doing when He made you my daughter. Thank you for the precious thoughts and I could say the same about you....if they had a Daughter's Day.) I love you too! Momma
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.
