Friendship is always Worth the Fight!

Dear Reader:

When I sent Libby her birthday card on June 3 -it had a coupon in it -good for a birthday lunch at Oscars and a sleep-over on the B& B side!

Yesterday was the day it came together. The only down part was that Brooke couldn’t join us -her husband Ted fell recently and she is needed at home until circumstances improve. Jackson is in New Jersey so by default that just left Libby and me.

But I told Libby to come on-these days if we wait until everyone is available-a lot of life would have passed us by… We just have to seize the moments with whomever is free and pray for that long-awaited day when all four of us will be reunited! We have been together over the best of times in our lives and we can never give up -just because we are going through tough times!

Winnie the Pooh sure didn’t with his best friends and that is why I always sign off with Winnie the Pooh declaring another favorite day!

When I found this friendship birthday card -I knew it was meant for all the Ya’s and the revolving roles we have all played over the years!

As time goes by, I count among my blessings the many different friends you’ve been to me-a friend to share fun times and laugh a little or just provide some quiet company…

A friend whose wisdom puts things in perspective, whose wit can spread a smile across my face… to me, your friendship’s more than just a blessing-so many times, it’s been my saving Grace!

It was on to Oscars with my favorite waiter, Mitch! He was so nice snd brought Libby the birthday ice cream crepe! And then he lit a birthday candle for that all-important birthday wish!

So until tomorrow…”Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; staying together is amazing!”

” Today is my favorite day” Winnie the Pooh

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.”
