I would have said the birth of my daughter, but then I had grandkids!!
THE MOST THRILLING MOMENT of your life.....?
The Most Thrilling Moment of My Life ? When I got married to Mrs. Flipper in the Sierra mountains under a gazebo ! Also the most thrilling : Watching the birth of my 3 dear children back in the 1980's . Peace out, Mr. Flipper
One of the top ten moments. I took the CPA exam twice before and knew that I did not pass. The third time I had a high level of confidence. Whe you do not pass, you receive a letter. However when you pass, you get a "big" envelope. The big envelope includes various forms that need to be completed.
So, when I received the "big" envelope. I knew before I opened the letter that I had passed. Absolutely thrilling!!
I wish everyone can have a "big" envelope experience.
I don't know what it would be. Seeing a total solar eclipse a year ago? Getting to watch a week of Grand Slam tennis at the Australian Open two years ago? Getting to meet Kim Clijsters a few years before that? Getting to meet my favorite band on several occasions? Graduating college? Going away to college? Traveling overseas for the first time? Meeting my first significant other for the first time? Running into a friend from school (whom I thought I'd never see again, who had moved away to Nevada) in an entirely different state, at Disneyland of all places, at night, while I was lost, during summertime at peak attendance for the park (what are the odds of that happening?)? Being totally dazzled after watching lightning strike a utility pole just yards away when I was in kindergarten, the explosion blinding me?
The volksplane I was flying crashed into a corn field. The say any landing you can walk away from is a good landing and if you can use the airplane again, then it's a great landing.
The day my current husband and I were married. Usually he's such a hard ass, strong, silent type, but he couldn't stop smiling when we said our vows. The mayor even cracked up over it.
I would be lying not to say that the greatest thrill was after a long winter of trying to "get right" with God but nothing got "right". I had quit trying. But then he did something very clear, open and unexpected that I knew he was really around and loved me like he does everyone else. A few days after, I remember that it was still frozen outside and we had the little girls bundled up after dark. We were in the field where later that spring we were going to plant tomatoes to sell. I looked up and the moon was mostly full and there were some few clouds. The branches were bare and my husband was talking about how we would do everything and all I could think about was how God was somewhere around and cared even up there on our mountain.
My next most thrilling moment was finding out the little boy I took care of could understand what I said to him.
When Bob Barker called me a moron. No joke. I cherish that moment.
not a captive:
That was beautiful. I wish I could share a bottle of red wine with you under the stars and talk about life, love, the births of our children, our men, our lost loves, hopes and dreams and anything else......
Palm, Someday we have to make a date.
My first make out session in the balcony of our local movie theater. Wooohoo!
The sense of relief and elation in the minutes after both my babies were born. Nothing quite like it.
It's so hard to pick just one. There's the sexual moments... the falling in love moments... the moments exploring foreign countries... the rock concerts... and then there are the little things... like celebrating Christmas for the first time... or teaching your child their A B C's... I just can't pick one.
A larger version of my meeting with John Barry and Miklos Rosza. Can you believe how much hair I was packing??
Buying this a couple of weeks ago: 2010 V Star 950 Tourer
That would probably be when I didn't die after crashing my hang-glider on enchanted rock.
Helping my babies come into the world, second- my little grandson.
As a kid......... skiing, I took off on this huge jump, I was some where past 40 feet off the ground because I could see over the tops of the trees along the ski trail. I was a bit scared because I thought I was going to over shoot the sloped landing and land on flat ground.......I survived and made the same jump just once more and survived again and never hit it again.
As an adult I'd like to say my children but I'll have to say the thrill of the existence of my grandchildren is hard to put to words.
Kissing my brand new little Egg immediately after she hatched. Yup, kissed her right through her cheese.
Holding my second little egg for the first time right after he hatched and kissing him on his soft little forehead.
Cruising the Caribbean with my grandma and aunt.
