What was the happiest day of your life? For me it was the day I graduated from college. I was 45 and the first person in my family to get a bachelor’s degree. The ceremony took place a couple hours away from home so I rented a “sleeps a bazillion” cabin and was joined by my four sisters, a brother, two of my three sons (the other was in the USAF stationed in Europe), my soon to be daughter-in-law, my in-laws, many nieces and nephews. For the actual ceremony they were joined by my boss, his wife, and son, and my best friend, her husband and son. My best friend bought my dress and her husband gave me an ounce of pot. Afterwards I went on a week-long vacation with my sisters. Good times.

@ProudMerry well i am happy why be miserable you don't achieve anything


I've had many happiest days. I don't know which one was the best one. Here are just a few:

I used to ask people, "How do you know if you're in love?" Then, one day, I fell in love and I knew. (If you have to ask, you aren't in love.)

I went on a ski trip to Breckenridge, CO with most of my family. On this one perfect day of the trip, we all skied down Four O'Clock Run together. It's a nice, long, gentle run that ends in the middle of town. We ended the day drinking wine coolers in the jacuzzi.

I went on a trip to Kauai. My mother was getting married again. After the wedding, we all had dinner at a very nice restaurant on the beach. It was a perfect moment in time. The scenery was amazing. The food was amazing. The company was amazing. The mai tai (the first I'd ever tried) was divine nectar. The sun was setting. Tiki torches were burning. And the smell of plumeria was wafting on the evening breeze. I made sure to snapshot the moment into my memory so I could relive it again whenever I wanted.

Ive had so many. I can't say which one is better than the rest. Ill list some. I had to pass 4 welding test to hire in at a chemical plant. I passed all my test to hire in as a millwright at a chemical plant. I passed all my tests to hire in as a machinist at a refinery. I guess being capable of getting the job meant the most to me. Now retiring is the next.

@ProudMerry. It can be rough. I had to retire. I ached all over from the physical demands. I'm just now feeling 50 %.




It will be a great day my future mate chooses me for our shared political vision and total love

@ProudMerry sparkling eyes sweetest kisses every touch tingles gently and hair smells rain fresh each word a forever echo of joyful affirmation ....or we stumble stutter and sing no matter how at loss for words and agree to another date of getting to know "you"


Last year my Darrow graduated 2 Medals of Engineering Excellence with Honors Star in Spanish University of Iowa May 8th


The day my two girls were born. I have had other good/happy days too but nothing will ever compare to that moment 🙂


I think it was when I found out how easy it actually was for me to stop drinking alcohol and also how easy it was to stop 'doing' Christmas.
