Merry Everything and Happy Always

Dear Reader:

We are growing closer and closer to the New Year-2022. I am watching Eva Cate and Jake and Winnie… while John and Mandy take a well-deserved hiatus to Asheville-their Christmas gift to each other.

On top of this today, December 29 is Tommy’s birthday-If Walsh was ” Kringle Dingle” on the 23rd, then Tommy is “Deduction Dingle” on the 29th!

Then on top of that the Clemson Tigers have their bowl game against Iowa State this afternoon… so I will be busy dropping off birthday presents and lots of Clemson paraphernalia… also including Tommy’s annual birthday change jar-a birthday tradition! Lots of change and three one dollar bills for three wishes for the New Year.

Looking through a daily book\journal Kaitlyn gave me I love this thought for the New Year:” Ultimately we are all just walking each other home.

Monday was my cozy day… to rest and relax and enjoy just the quiet of the aftermath of the hustle and bustle of Christmas.

So until tomorrow… as much as I hate to admit it…this observation remains true. ” People wish to be settled; only as far as they are unsettled is there hope for them.” In other words we must never stop discovering new ideas and thoughts in hope of bringing about a better tomorrow.

Today is my favorite day! Winnie the Pooh

Go Tigers!

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.”
