This one is about the moment I felt satisfied with my life. Wow, where do you start with this one. Should it be something momentous, an achievement award or such, a major accomplishment, or tiny moment in time that affected me, a sunset that was breathtaking, a peacefulness that came over me, a moment of complete serenity - what path do I take. I think I'm putting way too much time into this one! I came up with 2 moments that tell me I did something right in my life. The first was when everyone in my family came to see me at the hospital for my surgery. I try not to send them on a guilt trip but I'm sure they could have sensed my disappointment if they weren't there so maybe that shouldn't count. I made it through fairly well I'd say with not a lot of anguish or fear. As I was waiting to go into the operating room, I noticed it was number 73 which made me feel like everything would be fine since that's my lucky number (year I got married and graduated). But the moment that I can honestly say was even better was when the grandkids visited in July. We spent the week doing a bunch of things and my main goal was to get them back home safe and sound. When the week was over and we were going home I asked Braden if he wanted to come back next year and do it again and there was an emphatic "Sure". Those are the kind of moments I will look forward to having every year.
