    1> Becoming a dad.

    2> First sex.

    3> Various innocent memories of childhood.

    4> When I realized that my father is beginning, all of his own, to see through the JW lies, as tough as it is.

    5> When She and I first caught each others' eyes. (Alas, it was not meant to be.)

    6> And, you know, any good, wrenching, crying session to cleanse the soul.

    7> Each and every time I catch sight of a particularly beautiful cloud formation, sunset, or sunrise. (Again with the tears dammit!)

    well the speed limit on most highways is 65 mph. The worst part of the trip was having a rental moving van that only did 10-15 mph uphill. We had a slow time going over the sierra and the rockies.

    Serendipity's top ten:

    1. Becoming a mom and holding my daughter for the first time.

    2. Getting my bachelor's degree and then getting my first professional job. I went from making 3.50 to 12.50 an hour!

    3. Looking at my ex and realizing I now feel sympathy and forgiveness rather than bitterness. (Can't wait until this happens with my mother.)

    4. Getting a professional certification, recently.

    5. Making it through a presentation with a high level executive, resulting in extension of our multi-million dollar project and saving 50 jobs.

    6. The first kiss and touch of a new boyfriend.

    7. A special hike in Olympic National Porest in Washington, crossing the paths of deer and peering up at a tall waterfall and feeling such peace and contentment.

    8. First visit to the Oregon coast, overlooking a field of wildflowers on a brilliant, sunny summer day, feeling totally overcome and amazed by the beauty.

    9. As an 8 year old, riding my bicycle up and down hills and all over the countryside near a small Bavarian town.

    10. Seeing the glee in my daughter's eyes as we took a boat ride into Niagara Falls.

    Each and every time I catch sight of a particularly beautiful cloud formation, sunset, or sunrise. (Again with the tears dammit!)

    This so true goes along the line of remembering that being alive is pretty great sometimes
