Opening One’s Heart to Love

Dear Reader:

Just a quick note to say that all went well with my brother’s surgery-it was a long night and long day-had planned to send some pictures but my brother!/ internet isn’t working….

I just want to thank everyone for their prayers, calls, love and concern!

I will be staying a little longer since Ben can’t drive for three days and has dressings that need attention. Hopefully tomorrow I can figure out the internet problem here and send a longer post with photos!

So until tomorrow thank you God for guiding your instrument’ hands ( surgeons) and bringing Ben home again to us.

” Today is my favorite day”

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”

    Healing prayers for Ben & prayers for you, also, as you stay on to care for him. I only have one brother & I know I would be at his side in a minute, if he needed me. Blessings to both of you.
