Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

The Proudest Moment of my Life

I was tagged by Max to state the proudest moment of my life. I have been sitting on this for a couple of weeks now; not being able to complete it. I just realized why....I can't come up with a single answer; I have so may proud moments. Therefor I am going to invoke an author's creative prerogative and state the proudest moments of my life, in chronological order order.

  • The day I graduated college (there were times that I had my doubts that I would make it.)
  • The day I got married "she actually said "yes!"
  • Each of the days my three kids were born. (I was there on all three occasions, and in the delivery room for two.)
  • Each time my oldest scored a basket in High School Basketball games.
  • When my middle boy received scholastic awards; there were many.
  • Each of the days my three kids graduated high school.
  • The days my two oldest boys graduated college (San Diego State and Berkley.)
  • My daughter is scheduled to graduate college in June of 08 which will mean that each of my three kids will have graduated in 4 years......I an VERY proud of that feat.
  • The day my oldest graduated from the ROTC and became a Lt. in the army and what his commanding officer said about his character.
  • The day my oldest graduated from Ranger Training from Fort Benning, GA and a number of the other graduates came over to him and said "thank your for helping me. Without your help I wouldn't have made it through the training."
  • The day my oldest left for his first tour of duty in Iraq (also the scariest day of my life.)
  • The day my middle child, apparently, became the youngest person to be made Senior Publicist. (He works at a major publishing house in NY.)
  • Each and every day any of my kids walks though my front door.
  • Whenever any of my kid's friends speak of them; always complimentary.
  • My daughter goes to San Francisco State University, a very liberal school. She has maintained her own views in spite of what the teachers of school has to say. I am very proud of that fact. She remains her own person.
My oldest is Garrett, my middle is Matt, and my youngest is Stephanie.

I do believe that I have many proud moments left in my life........MANY!

The waiting was definitely worthwhile!!! Congratulations: you are obviously a proud family man (and you have the reasons to be so) *bowing*!

This was the most beautiful meme I have ever read (and I have read a few) *clap clap clap*!

I particularly loved when you said that you were proud when your wife said "yes" *tender face* (don't be surprised: I am going to get married next year lol)!
May God continue to bless you throughout your life, deserve it :)!

Thanks for having participated :)!

Well, Mel, that’s a lot to be proud of—a full life to date. May you add many more to the list in coming years.

Sarge Charlie said...

I feel your pride when I read this, your kids have made you proud. My daughter graduated from U. San Diago, she never recovered. You have reason to be proud.

Amel's Realm said...

WOW...such accomplishments! YOU SHOULD be proud of yourself. :-))))

Raising kids in today's world isn't easy...hearing your kids' friends or superiors say good things about them must be really rewarding!!! ;-))))

Monday Morning Power said...

Thank you for the sentiment.

Monday Morning Power said...

Thank you. When you say that your daughter never recovered, I assume you mean from the liberal brainwashing??

Monday Morning Power said...

Yep, that's the best.....hearing what great kids they are from others.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...
