An Important Life Lesson from the Sun…

Ever-giving… Ever-loving

Dear Reader:

Let’s first think of the highly diversified job our sun has been given… ( in human terms… high stress with no rest… working two 12 hour shifts a day… everyday! No vacation time off. (For that matter) no time off…ever!

Our sun is an ordinary star in the Milky Way ( 1 of about 100 billion stars)

It extremely influences our planet… by driving weather, ocean currents, seasons, and climate. It makes plant life possible through photosynthesis. Without the sun’s heat and light, life on Earth would not exist.

Thinking again, in humans terms… the sun gives selflessly and completely…non-stop. It is one thing in life we can all count on daily… not subject to man’s greed, and because of that it is everyone’s ( regardless of race, religion, social or economic status) life- giving gift, also not controlled by budgets or ” ceilings” designed to benefit the few and devastate the masses who make up We the People… the true ” government ” in a Democracy!

Do we meet the sun’s generosity with equal gratitude?

It’s not too late… We the People must remind our representatives that love always wins… everybody wins when lives are shared equally and we give everyone respect and dignity by reaching back and pulling another living human with a lift and helping hand.

So until tomorrow… Remember our sun is just an ordinary star ( one of 100 billion in our galaxy) but look how it puts all of us living on Earth first …our needs) before itself or its needs. Isn’t it time we do the same? Ordinary residents on Earth?

Today is my favorite day… Winnie the Pooh

Surprise! My favorite oncology infusion nurse-Linda Carson -surprised me bringing me soup/ stew-so full of vegetables and chicken I could eat each delicious bite with a fork… sent my taste-buds saluting! ( Linda is holding an original ” Honey-Bowl” that I filled with lantana for a colorful surcie delight! )

Gin-g stopped by earlier this week with yummy muffins-cool this week but hot ice cream weather is just around the corner!

Sweet Memories

Eloise is having a ball with her three girl cousins and cool t-shirts at Disney World!!!

Love you my precious!

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.”
