Life is Only As Good as the People You Share It With…

Dear Reader:

Never have truer words been spoken. What happiness it brought this grandmother yesterday… the first time all the family has been together in a long time… coming in from Alabama and Fripp but everyone made it.

Our gourmet chef, Tommy, grilled out ( best hot dogs and hamburgers around town) and it was a perfect day to be outside!

We all know the ending of this happy reunion had one teeny tiny glitch- Clemson lost. Disappointing but congratulations to Carolina… in every competition there has to be a winner-loser category. The game had all the elements of a good novel… suspense, applause, sighs, frustration, exhilaration and a minute count down ending.

But as we also know …like with any good novel… another one is already being written… and who knows how it will end? Only time will tell.

So until tomorrow… there is no real ending… it is just a place where you stop the story. And then wait for the next one… and if you love football like my family… anticipation is half the fun!

Good-bye to my sweet ” home” this last Wednesday–Saturday- I felt like I was staying in a five star hotel! I got so spoiled

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.”
