” Only Time Will Tell”… Guess What? Time Told!

Our Little Girl Set Her Own Time Clock… arriving on July 26 with almost Three Hours to Spare!!!

Dear Reader:

Tuesday provided the family with about all the Anticipation we could handle… a myriad of emotions surfaced as we all waited to hear what the princess would choose… join the party or hold out for a private viewing and single celebration!

Our ” Cinderella” decided to play both ends… arrive ” fashionably late” for the ball … but enough time to party before the bewitching hour-when the clock struck midnight! From now on… she, mom, and granddad will ” own” the ball… together!

To date… I haven’t heard an ” official ” name yet but will let you know when I hear. However… so far her early name responses are ” Beauty, Precious, Cutie-Bug, Adorable, and Gorgeous” … ( Personally I would run to the bank with any of those referents! 😉)

One picture Lee sent out yesterday referred to his daughter as their little ” Jedi ”

… ( I wonder why… ” Little Jedi?” 😉)

Lee described Vikki as amazing… and that she was but the team of mother and baby were awe-inspiring! Two hours… Boom! Ady first let me know around 5:30 yesterday afternoon that she and her grandmother ( Susan) were on their way to keep Rhodes while Lee took Vikki out for her birthday … but quickly things changed… they had just gotten the call that Vikki had gone into labor and they would be spending the night with Rhodes!

I started squealing to myself… could this really be happening ? It certainly wasn’t a given that the baby would arrive before midnight… the dynamic duo had six hours. Nail-bitting time. Vikki’s first ” swing at bat” five years earlier …had turned into a long, drawn out challenging labor that no one wanted repeated… and it wasn’t… just the opposite… smooth sailing all the way!

Many of you readers might remember Lee asked the universe ( in reference to the new baby coming on her mother’s and Ben’s July 26 birthday … Is that too many celestial miracles for one day? Only time will tell.

Now we all know the answer…. ” NO… God can make as many ” celestial miracles ” as needed at any given time!

So until tomorrow…Lee ended his happy announcement yesterday… (about his, Vikki, and Rhodes’ newest addition to the family with)… ” Mom and baby are both healthy and recovering. LIFE IS AMAZING!

Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh

Linda Carson started out to visit her sister in the NC mountains yesterday and immediately got behind this truck. ( she used to end up behind a similar one while working ( taking it as a good luck day) but since retirement had not seen one. A definite God Wink! A fun trip ahead, no doubt!

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.”
