A Simple Day

As I read the ” Great Pumpkin’s ” advice… I just re-thought my day yesterday and realized, with the exception of the sun ( it was overcast all day) and the only ” thick skin” I needed was for the chilly wind blowing… my day was ” pumpkin perfect.”

We celebrated Butch and Kaitlyn’s birthday yesterday with a delicious brunch at the ” Post House” in Old Village, Mt Pleasant. So much fun just being together.

Then we came back and let Kaitlyn open her presents!

I had stopped by Wellmore to hang out with Ben on the way to Mt Pleasant and he gave me a new tour of the floor above him … great view of beautiful Daniel Island.

Then I was off to Mandy and John’s to see the family before they fly out Tuesday for Alabama to visit John’s parents for Thanksgiving.

And of course I had to love on my grand-dogs Winnie and Pip
Eva Cate got back just in time for me to see her before leaving… she was with a friend and her mother watching the downtown Charleston decorating for Christmas!

Darkness is prevailing in the skies earlier and earlier every day. There was just one streak of rose colored sunlight leading me home.

So until tomorrow… Every day I try to learn something new… a fact or feeling … and I left Mt Pleasant feeling like the luckiest person in the world. Keep it simple and let love do the rest.

Today is my favorite day… Winnie the Pooh

I added Rudy’s picture to the Memory Tree… Rudy was Kaitlyn’s dog from home who went to law school with her and whom Tommy met when he and Kaitlyn started dating… Rudy was the engagement ring bearer when Tommy proposed to Kaitlyn

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.”
