A Strange Time Warp!

Dear Reader:

I really feel that I have been in some kind of time warp this past week. It was a week ago yesterday that I stopped by to check on Mollie and left with everything calm and cool.

Three hours later the family got the text saying it was time to head to the hospital and it has been a roller coaster ride ever since! Then add a snow/ice storm that doesn’t melt, sleepovers. another stomach bug- there hasn’t been a dull moment!

So when Donna and Sam sent me these photos of home the alluring scene of serenity is calling me back home. Thank you Vickie, Luke, Donna and Sam for taking the photos.

But how lucky I have been to be in Mt Pleasant and been treated to 5 Star accommodations- fantastic meals and a personal bed heater in the form of Eva Cate, ( Of course the stomach bug hit both children but such is life!)

Yesterday Ya Brooke texted to let us know her granddaughter had arrived- exactly one week after Eloise! We are so excited about he girls getting together as they grow.

Welcome to the world Emma Grey!

So you see the happy surprises continue! I am finally keeping Eva Cate today while Mandy returns to school- a scenario that was supposed to take place last Wednesday!

I will be glad to wear some different clothes for sure when I get home tomorrow.

So until tomorrow Thank you Father for family- I would hate to go through life without it!

…And for what this “time warp” brought! Happy One Week Birthday Eloise!

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.”

      I just got home about an hour ago and trying to catch up some on emails and texts….was so concerned about the house and its status with heat and pipes but so far…everything appears to be okay….Deep relief. Marcia is coming Thursday to stay with Mollie and help with the baby…will be going over this weekend/ and some next week to see her ….its her birthday on Lee’s birthday…and get caught up with all her news. Love little Eloise! Was really tiring of truck sounds.
