Thus far?

Apart from 3 wonderful men (my sons).

Would have to be going into jails and brothels, to help people...from the life they have.I would say being in Ministry.
jonaj, that must take a lot of strength and courage, but I imagine it is also very rewarding. Good on you. Do you listen to Hope 103.2? I think it would be right up your alley.
by Vee
Hi Vee...yes I do listen to Hope Radio, as I also have a friend who works there.
So I have vested interest you could say...lol..lol :)
by jonaja
Wow, that's pretty special jonaj. Do you go to the Christmas Carols they host? O haven't been, but would love to one day.
by Vee
No I haven't maybe this year... :)
I only live 20 mins away too!
by jonaja
I haven't been either but have been discussing going this year with my husband and son. Maybe we'll bump into eachother. :)
by Vee
Vee that would be lovely if we do bump into each other :) at Hope....
by jonaja
Totally! :)

My personal achievement was when my son was born and career wise it was when I got the key contributor award for the year.
Publishing a book and passing my maths GCSE.
Being there for my sisters.
It is one of my greatest regrets that I was unable to be there for my sisters when they needed me most. How many sisters do you have?

Helping my daughter realise that she is a worthwhile human being and that everyone of us has a purpose and contribution to make the world, if we choose to. There is still a long way to go, but I'm am always hoping she will outlive us and not end her life prematurely by her own hand.

parks, I am so sorry. I wish you both hope, happiness and abundant blessings. In today's world, it is too easy to forget that we are all children of God with infinite worth.
by Vee
Probably mine was career wise -had my own successful business with my husband, and then ex husband, for 27 years.

Are you talking about breeding llamas Finy?
by Vee
No Vee, not the llamas -that was only for 10 years or less.
We had a wholesale/retail business that I started and my husband (father of children) came in with me, then we divorced and went on working for years.

Taking up motorbike riding in my 60s. I'm just about to go out on my Harley into the hills. Not bad for an old gal, lol!

And being married for 46 years to-day!

This is a clichéd answer, but my two children.

Both are successful in each, their own Professional Careers.
My daughter's just had a beautiful baby, & I'm now a Grandmother!

At School, I was fortunate to achieve academically, as well as being a recognised senior & Open Champion, in many sports activities there.

At work, in a job I just LOVED, not only got Honours in examinations, but was Dux of many courses. It was a very rewarding career, & I reached high levels, in different areas of the one job. This was most satisfying to me. It took much study, but that was easy for me.

I would have to say the birth of my son after the heartbreak of losing a daughter at birth. He has grown to be a well rounded, intelligent and caring man, who has had several successful careers after obtaining two degrees with honours, including tv scriptwriter, geologist, and is now an intensive care nurse doing a job he loves. I think also having a good marriage which lasted for 49 years until my husband's death counts as a great achievement nowadays. I think both of these are my greatest achievements, even after having a very successful working career.
Good for you, norma. You must be very proud of your son. :)
by Vee
Thanks Vee - I am very proud of him and his academic achievements, but I think the thing I am most proud of is the fact that he is such a lovely, kind and caring human being. That's of course not to say we don't have our moments as all parents and children have I guess.
