My Dream Job
The happiest day in my life was when I got my first job working in Yellowstone National Park. I thought I had gone to Heaven.
The Births of My Children
The happiest days of my life were the days I brought my children into the world. That is when my life began. It had complete meaning for the first time. Then when I thought I could never love someone with every cell in me, my son was born, and again I was reminded why God gave me life. There is no exact explanation you can identify, but it is amazing.
A Renewal of Love
The day my sons walked me to the chuppah to again swear my love for their father on our 25th anniversary.
Stopped Thinking, Started Being
The happiest day of my life was when I stopped thinking about being happy—and just WAS!
Crossing the Finish Line
The happiest day of my life was when I crossed the finish line after running 26.2 miles at the Honolulu Marathon. [We] never know what we are capable of doing…until we try. (And, of course, the day I met my husband but nothing beats that feeling of crossing the finish line!)
A Love That Grows
The day I married my husband over 28 years ago. We've had great joy and tremendous sorrow throughout these years. And I love him more each year.
Living to See My Daughter Graduate
My happiest day was this past Thursday. I was here to see my youngest child, now a young lady of 18, graduate from high school and receive her diploma, Almost one year ago I was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer--I am now terminal.
After graduation we had a party at a local restaurant and as I looked around at my family and friends, I praised God that he granted my wish to be present on this day. There may be other important dates I miss--her wedding, graduation from college, the birth of her children- but I am thankful to have had that one perfect day.
