Your Happiest moment?

What has been your happiest moment in your life so far??? (apart from the birth of our children as i think that would come out to often),

Mine was when our family found out that my mum didnt have cancer (when they had been treating her for it for 2 years!!!)

Passing my Driving Test 1st time. No other female in our family has ever passed their test so I was told not to bother!

It was the best feeling ever!!

the day I met my husband, I woke up and my bedroom had somehow been filled with tiny blossoms and seeds during the night. I can only think that an unusual breeze blew them in through my slightly open window, I felt that morning, I was going to have a special day.. and I did!

I assume thats what they mean by " making your own luck" !!

Even gave her a course of radiotherapy on her lower back (thought she had bone cancer but it turned out to be degenerative arthritis) and sent her to see the McMillan nurses, even got all the family together (brothers flew over from Aus & USA) as we didnt know how long she had left!!!

Birth of children?

Why would that be anyone's happiest moment?

(genuine question).

It's the moment just before you find out what you let yourself in for lol :w00t:
It is a pretty amazing moment as you have been waiting all that time to meet this miracle you created, bringing new life into the world is very special and at the time when they are born it makes you cry with happiness, hard to describe unless you have experienced it which I have twice :-D

I have 4 sons ...but the birth of my first grandchild was something else ...cant quite describe it - maybe its because i havent got to be the one to get up at night and change those nasty nappies :whistling:

he's now 2 & half ...and lives 100 miles away so i dont get to see those terrible tamtrums

Seriously!

All I can think of is dirty nappies, sleepless nights, draining f funds and no more social life/sex for ~18 years.

I made a decision a long time ago not to have them based on the above, so perhaps I'm overly cynical.lol

I can see why people don't want to have kids, I love my two to pieces however if I lived my life again I would try it without kids! They are a full on commitment for years and years and it certainly isn't any easy ride. Saying that it is sooo rewarding seeing them go through each milestone and realise that you have taught them how to speak, walk, everything. It is an amazing experience.

Difficult to choose one, but these were pretty good:

Seeing my team get automatic promotion.
Partying all night at the fiestas for the whole summer when living in Spain.
Travelling around the world with my best mates.

I'm sure it is. Sorry, having a bit of a crisis just now about it, just trying to see both points of view.

So far it can be roughly divided as such:
Women say - biological happenings (inc. romance)
Men say - travelling around the world getting into merry scrapes and adventures.

The birth of a child is ideally a much-longed for and hard won moment of planning and nurturing of first an idea and then a reality.

Its pretty much the same thing.. if you can imagine something you really really want and need and having to work hard for it just for the HOPE of having it and then that dream finally coming true..

thats how becoming a Mum or a Dad feels.

Tough one, I always wanted to have 2 kids from when I was younger then when we were expecting I suddenly panicked and thought "what are we doing" then when he was born it was all fine. We then spent 3 years trying to decide whether to have another cos we felt like we were starting back at square one in terms of going through the tough bit (first few years), I won't lie it is flippin hard especially 1st time when you haven't a clue what you are doing. Then we decided to work out if would we regret not doing it more than doing it and the answer was we would regret not having another.....it took another 3 years to achieve but eventually we got a little girl and I don't regret it one bit, it was the best decision. 2nd time round was sooo much easier, knew what we were doing and far less bewildering.
So your decision is whether you would regret in later life never having had kids, its a hard one to know right now but I tried to see myself in 10 years and I could see myself being sad if I had not had kids.

I hope you can find a solution, it isn't all poopy nappies and puke, it's about creating a little version of you and your partner and then teaching it everything you know and realising just how amazing both you and the life you have made are. Sometimes I just stare at them and smile when they say or do something I taught them and feel so proud.

Thats a lovely way of wording it.

I love when our son does something in such a way that he looks and sounds JUST like a mini version of his father. It's almost like a form of immortality in a way... seeing him growing is like seeing my husband as he was when he was a child and seeing him have his life all over again.

My kids teach me things I would never have known otherwise. It's like watching the universe unfold all by itself. Feels so like.. THIS is how its meant to be. Having your own child is satisfying and self-enduring. As they grow and move apart from us it's a process of letting them grow into their own person from their beginnings as a mixture of us... it's beautiful. Not in any selfish kind of way... almost of having a place within the world of destiny as it should be..its the beauty of feeling like something you achieved in a way that could never have been so otherwise. True creation.

I know a lot of you are blatantly thinking "I know what RFM is gonna say" and you're right lol...it was going on my first date with my amazing girlfriend...I didn't know happiness like that actually existed but several months later, I still remember what we were doing at every moment of the day (and no...we weren't having sex before someone says that lol).

The whole thing seemed like it was from a Disney film and I normally don't remember dates/times nor have I ever missed someone so much after saying bye to them...whether it's in person, via phone or even MSN? :oops:

I don't know if this will be topped but I hope wedding bells can top it, if not...then it'll come close because it's hard to beat the perfect day. :-D
