… ” Your Mountain is Waiting…”

Dear Reader:

Well …I am off to Pinnacle Mountain today to visit Mike and Honey! Then Tuesday Honey and I head to Trust North Carolina to St. Jude’s Chapel of Hope! Then back again Wednesday for all the upcoming family birthday gatherings!

This was a ” spontaneous ” decision after weeks of pleading from Honey to return! It was such a crazy summer with unforeseen incidents occurring that planned dates came and went.

Then last Friday I went to my mailbox and there was a card from Honey-the same picture as the title photo and inside was a photo of the chapel asking if I had forgotten it-the chapel had not forgotten me.

I called Honey and today I am heading to the mountains! It is amazingly fast how life falls into place once we commit and take a leap of faith.

Tomorrow we head to the chapel… to leave prayers of gratitude and prayers for healing for all the family…

If I can’t get Wi-Fi in the mountains.. there might not be a post Tuesday and Wednesday… but know whenever I get it-even if I have to wait til Wednesday when I return – there will (no doubt) be lots of pictures, adventures and stories!

“Today is my favorite day” Winnie the Pooh

And Boy was it! Mandy and the kids surprised me with an early birthday present when she found out I was heading to the mountains! New luggage! It is now packed and ready to go!

Then Susan. Bekah and Ady arrived with more presents-pumpkin candles, cake, fall towels, etc! What a fun day!

Then I was treated to lunch… just being with the family was early birthday surprise enough!

Saturday night I am sure it was the Dingle dogs that pulled Clemson through ” the game that wouldn’t end.”!!!

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.”
