I have sat here pondering the things I have done in this life that have made Myself very proud.

I have pondered the days/evenings that were mine and mine alone which gave Me great strength.

I have smiled while typing out this post.

I would have to ask (if it's not too very personal) what was your BEST memory/day/moment/?

For Me?

Well, for Me it may seem quite silly and simple but it is however, what sticks out in My mind the most.

My Niece. She is autistic. I was at the hospital when that tiny life came into the world. I watched, I cried. It was amazing. Goo and all.

Her parents were not very good at communicating with her. I don't really believe they tried that much so, I took it upon Myself to watch her patterns......to see her 'routine' and YES she has a very strict routine!

I found she enjoys music. Something I Myself can relate to.

I always found it frustrating that she could not or/would not speak.

So many times I wanted to have a conversation with her. I knew she was SMART AS HOLY HELL but had no way to express it. She had no way to let it out.

This bothered Me a great deal.

One day...out of the blue......the ice was broken.

I decided to take her out for a ride in the real LOUD orange RoadRunner.

Remember, she doesn't speak.

True story, I got her in the front seat and latched up her safety belt. I had planned to take her for a ride to Borders to buy her a book. (She's SMART) I KNOW she can read. Her parents seemed to be oblivious to this.

In any event, I strapped her in and she looked at Me. Pale blue eyes in a dimming sky...

She SPOKE. Not broken up goo goo bliggidly blag either. SHE SPOKE TO ME.

She said:

"I like your car ***** (My name of course ommited) it's orange and it's LOUD!".

Tears streamed down My face. I was dumbfounded. I KNEW there was someone in there. I KNEW it.

I think.....that was My best day. I have so many, but I never thought being able to communicate with that small silent child were possible and it happened.

She still speaks of My name this day, and I might add is in REGULAR school and thriving.

What....was your best day?

My BEST day directly followed my WORST day!


So...

I'm a little kiddie (6!), and my mom is about seven months pregnant. In the middle of the night, I heard noises in the living room (1 bedroom apartment, after recent divorce. My sister and I slept in the room, my mother slept on the couch. I love her so much...) and went to investigate.

My mother was about to have a baby. I think it might have been a late miscarriage if I hadn't been there. It was messy and horrible, and she was crying and then saw me. She said, "(Euol), go get (neighbor name), tell her to come over, now."

I was very brave, for a little girl seeing her mother bleeding, possibly to death. I fetched the neighbor quickly, and we drove to the hospital. My mother, along with my new baby sister, nearly died.

Then I got to see the most beautiful and amazing little creature ever, with the tiniest toes and fingers ever. I loved her so much. It fills my heart to bursting just thinking of her when she was that tiny. She nearly died, and managed to make it... just a little butterball of miracle, really.

That was the most beautiful day I can recall, my mother smiling, my sister and I staring at the gorgeous little creature.

Congrats to you.

I have seen your post, and i sat down quietly for a few minutes to think, do i have a best day? The answer is no.

Humbly i would say, everyday is my best day. Everyday i try to create the best moment. I love my life. My life in all have been wonderful, beautiful and enjoyable. Life for me now is exciting, there are so many things ahead for me to learn and work towards. Goals in my life which are yet to be accomplished.

Get a good laugh with your friends. Have a great meal. Work hard and earn loads of money. Go travel around the world. So many best moments happening everyday.

Do i sound too fairy tale? Maybe i'm too simple.

Living is a moment. The greatest moment.

Each day I wake up I smile and say HEY, another chance! I'm HERE! Watch out world!

However, some moments are more important to Me than others.

A silly thing I remember from when I was around three years old (yes I can recall events that far back)...

Munchkins! (Dunkin Donuts) made these little donut holes which they named (Munchkins).

I recall, My biological father tying My baby shoes (white in color) and stopping at the Dunkin Donuts.

I would 'hoard' these little treasures and make My parents believe I had in fact, eaten them (when all along I was saving them) thus.......another munchkin for ME!

They finally found out what I was doing and the scam was up but memories.....those were good memories.

I never waste a smile on a good memory.

My best day/moment/memory is actually three days long.

It was the spring of 02', just one day after my 16th birthday. I spent much of the day in and out of airports on the long trip from NJ to just inside Michigan's Canadian border. I was stepping off my final plane's stairway when I caught a glimpse of something so wonderful it nearly brought tears to my eyes. I grabbed my bags and proceeded into the airport's terminal with my heart racing. Then it happened; I met my girlfriend and future wife in person for the first time. I was overwhelmed with more joy and happiness than I had ever experienced before. As we embraced each other I felt like I was going to fall over, yet somehow I managed to hold her tightly.

My (now) wife and I had been long-distance dating for nearly 18months at that point and we were very eager to meet one another. We were quite shy despite knowing each other for so long. The long car ride to her family's home where I would be staying for the weekend seemed so short, every moment spent staring into my lover's eyes. Once at her house I was shown my room, and unpacked. Not a single moment was spent from whom I love. After I was unpacked and settled in my love and I went into her room. We sat and talked, held hands, and fell even more in love with each other as the day went by.

The next day I awoke early, went into my love's room, and woke her gently, running my fingers through her hair, caressing her as she awoke fully. I left the room for a minute so she could get dressed, and when she was dressed I was invited back in. The sunlight was shinning into her room from a high window, the beams scattering throughout her room illuminating it. She told me to close the door behind me, and I did. I looked back at her, she moved forward into the sunlight now and from my angle her hair was illuminated brilliantly with the sun peeking through her gorgeous locks. She spoke to me rather soft and timidly "is it ok if I kiss you?". My heart raced, I scrambled to say something but couldn't so I quickly nodded my head as to say "yes!". She walked over to me, it must have been mere milliseconds but it felt so slowly, we closed our eyes and shared out first kiss, our first moment of true passion. It was my first kiss, and the most wonderful moment I have ever known. I knew then I had found heaven on earth. I knew then that I really did love her with all my heart.

We spent the rest of the day in each other's arms, cuddling. It was a wonderful weekend.

That is my fondest memory and most wonderful experience in my life. Four years later we married, making my second happiest moment/day/memory.

That is a very good question, and it got me thinking rather intensely. I have so many wonderful experiences that it is hard to decide. My wedding was excellent but I guess experiencing the birth of my son would be the best. I had never felt so many different emotions or as intense emotion as I felt when my son came out of his Mommy. I was happy because my Mom was there, I was sad because my wife was in so much pain, I was happy because I was able to experience something so exciting and emotional and be by my wife's side! Not to rush anything because I enjoy every minute with my son, but I do know how fast time can go by. I know that the day he graduates or moves out of the house, the day I saw him being born, so helpless and small, shriveled and crying in his faint voice will flash into my mind once again. I relive that moment quite a bit and that is how I can enjoy my son and be in the moment with him.
Oh man, thanks for the topic Eve! you really inspired some thought and emotions in me!

A special moment in my life, was when I was three. I came home from school, and laying on my bed was a little black lab puppy.
When I saw her I was so happy to have a dog, and another addition to the family. On that day we named her sadie, and she took a liking to it, at least I hope she likes it, havent heard her complain yet. Ever since she has lived a fat happy, well loved life. That was a very special time for me.

Wow, Evil Eye...I can't imagine the joy you felt at that moment!

I cannot narrow it down to one best moment...so my top three would be (not in order):

-the birth of my son

-the day I got married (despite the fact the marriage was doomed to disaster...another story...)

-meeting the members of White Zombie in Toronto

My son. I can't help but brag about him. He is too wonderful.

Sexual relations when producing the finest offspring could be considered art, by some one.

*Laughs*

I know I'm known. It hasn't been kept secret for over 25 years.

Obvously, it is difficult to pick just one. In fact, I managed to pick three:

1) My first day of college. I was ready to leave home when I was thirteen.

2) The day it became obvious that my wife and I are "meant for each other".

3) The day I realized I loved Manhatten. It's my home away from home.

I should write of my the day my children were born. I should be writing about my wedding, the day I fell in love or the day I sent in my COS Membership Registration ( last week ) but I can't.
I am a Firefighter. I am great at what I do. In recognition, I was able to garner a ride-along with FDNY Ladder 21, Engine 34 440 West 38th Street, Hell's Kitchen. This was a great honor for me, to be able to ride with the "Big boys" "The Pride of Midtown". I would be spending several days riding and fighting fire along side some of the best firefighters and paramedics in the world.
I had been up early riding with the medics. We had a cardiac arrest on west 40th, a hand laceration and a stabbing. We had returned to the station house and it was the normal firehouse camaraderie seen in any house in any city. Some played a board game, some played pool, some watched TV listened to Stern. The tone sounded. It was September 11, 2001 and the report was a small twin engine commuter plane had hit WTC 1. En route it changed to a jumbo liner. The smoke was evident. We arrived and were fully inside WTC 1 when WTC 2 or South Tower was hit.
No one can describe what I saw that day. I myself only remember in snippets of sight and sound, scent and touch, confusion and sadness. I assisted S.A.R. crew in to WTC 1 ( North Tower ) We made it to the 10th floor and decided to work down. The pouring of people from the upper floors was tremendous and were were ordered to stage on the 12th floor and assist with the lower floors evac.
We each collected a group of people and began to lead them down the stairs to the lobby and outside to medical staging. On the 6th floor landing, a pregnant woman had been knocked aside and my self and my partner picked her up. She was having contractions ( brought on by the stress) and we carried her down the last 5 floors. We packaged her for transport and I was ready to return to WTC1 when the Paramedic I was shadowing said to stay on board since I made initial contact with the patient.
He went back inside. I went with the ambulance to the hospital ER. We saw the cloud. You could feel the rumble.
I saw death with every look, but death failed to define that day.
So, how did I find goodness in these memories? Well, beyond the deaths and the funerals, the dust and blood were great people. I learned what it was to be a life saver. I learned why it hurts to be called a hero, what a face of a mother or a wife, a husband or a father looks like when you return their family to them. I saw conditions like fear and exhaustion vanish beneath the need to leave no one behind. I can never fully explain to those who didn't live in that city, or dig in that pit or hide in that dust what that day and those beyond it mean to me. It may not have been the best day for humanity but it was the day when the best in humanity came out for it's self.

Thank you for sharing this. You really conveyed the intensity of the day but at the same time you tied in why it was so special to you and why it was one of the best days of your life - which was an incredibely difficult task you set for yourself considering the emotions surrounding these events.

I honestly can't put into words how amazing this was to read. I'm not so much for 'humanity' but you put a real personal face on what can be very vague notions to most people. I can't say it better than you did.

No it is not daycare it is part of the public school system in many states NY being one of those states. It is however not mandatory it is optional and many parents do not utilize it.

It is left up to the parent to decide weather or not to enroll their children at that grade.

That's actually interesting to me. I wasn't allowed to go to school before kindergarten... and I had to go to that a year later than other kids, because of when my birthday is.

Then again, school systems had never worked well for me. I was reprimanded and had to bring a note home to my parents for boasting of the words I knew (I could read at a fourth grade level by kindergarten), and was put into a corner after being scolded for knowing cursive in first grade. Then came the 'she's so smart, skip her a grade -- oh, wait, her social skills need to be developed normally -- ok, so hold her back for lack of discipline -- no, she's too smart for that!' circle.

Anyway, thank you for clarifying. I was certain I couldn't have been the one confused, because I thought of my experiences and how hard my parents tried to get me into the school system -- but it's apparent I was.

Again, thank you for replying.

The above link is an example of the issues of preschool. My son started at two. What separates perschool from daycare is that preschool offers education that is age appropriate.

For practical reasons, such as both parents working full time, these can be full day sessions. In that case, there are elements also found in daycare, such as supervised playtime.

Not everyone gets a puppy when they get home. ;\)

One of my best memories has to be of my first real kiss. The memory alone makes my heart beat faster. I won't share all the intimate details, as I feel that those belong to me alone. Suffice it to say that when such a strong desire is finally met, it feels damn good.

So, how did I find goodness in these memories? Well, beyond the deaths and the funerals, the dust and blood were great people. I learned what it was to be a life saver. I learned why it hurts to be called a hero, what a face of a mother or a wife, a husband or a father looks like when you return their family to them. I saw conditions like fear and exhaustion vanish beneath the need to leave no one behind. I can never fully explain to those who didn't live in that city, or dig in that pit or hide in that dust what that day and those beyond it mean to me. It may not have been the best day for humanity but it was the day when the best in humanity came out for it's self.


Thanks for sharing.

It touched me.

I was not there. I was an hour and fifteen minute trainride south; but, I still remember everything I did that day. I need to buy you lunch. I do know people who were there. Both in the building; and, one who volunteered time in the weeks that followed.

Hats off... ;\)

I think my best day was when I decided that I was going back to college after discovering that I wasn't very good at construction work, and didn't really care for selling life insurance, but it was that day not just because of the concrete of going back, but the feel of a sense of purpose, and destiny forming in me, was indescribable, and the power it made me feel was an incredible feeling, to be taking control of myself for something long term and not just for a pay check in two weeks, or a month or whatever the period may be. It gave me a lot of pride.

It's really, really hard to say. I've been thinking about this for at least a good week and a half, but there were many great days that occurred that are worthy of recognition.

If I had to pick one, I would say that it would be my 4 day trip to Miami back in 2005. Having never been to Miami before in my life, I was a truly happy camper when I got to explore much the territory. It was also nice that I got to see palm trees, and took quite a few pictures of myself standing next to them. It was one of the most relaxing, fun, and enjoyable times of my life.

Other honorable mentions:
- Seeing Dream Theater live for the first time back in 2003.
- The day my parents brought home a puppy when I was a teenager.
- Arriving home the day I graduated 4 years of college to find a nice present: a Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar!

First and foremost I want to thank you for creating such a great topic, I personally don't spend enough time reflecting on all of the good things that have happened throughout my life. Amidst all of the trials I am faced with on a daily basis you managed to start my day off with a smile.

This past March my wife and I visited Hawaii (Oahu/Maui) this was my first time, my wife's second time. Parts of Oahu reminded me of Vegas, very hectic and fast paced. The North Shore of Oahu will always hold a place in my heart I had dreamed of visiting Pipeline as a kid and when it finally happened it nearly brought tears to my eyes. I sat on the beach at Pipe for nearly four hours, my wife had to drag me back to the car. We spent two days in Maui, we didnt have an agenda just a map and a full tank of gas. We went to a couple black-sand beaches, did some snorkling and basically just explored. There is something about Maui that to this day causes me to stop and think "wow-unbeleivable", I cant explain what it is but it definately left a lasting impression. Whats great about the whole thing is that the memories are more powerful to me now then some of the actual experiences as they were happening.
