Default What is your biggest success in life ?

Just wondering what you guys consider your biggest success or accomplishments in life. Mine is when we all gather for the holidays and I get to enjoy my family. Both of my daughters have good careers, married well, well behaved intelligent children and success well beyond there years. Iím not bragging. Iím proud. Thatís my greatest success. Think about yours and be proud of it.

My little boy. Raising him has been my triumph. He's a great kid. So ready to get another hunting season in with him.

My four daughters. They’re respectful, beautiful and wise beyond their years. They are my legacy and I can’t wait to see what their lives led them to as they get older.

Raising 4 children to be productive citizens in the world, and being blessed enough to have the greatest woman I can imagine stay by my side for 27 years. Still not sure how I made either of those things happen, but thank God every day that I was able to.

My biggest success in life is my entire family having a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. My beautiful loving wife, both of my sons who are married to like minded Godly women.

In my mind there is nothing greater than the peace of mind that comes from a personal relationship with Christ and knowing where we will all spend eternity.

I dedicated my live to God and was baptized at 16 that was pretty special.I passed the Texas irrigation license test about 20 years ago which allowed me to really increase the value of my business and the work I’m able to do.That was by far the most challenging and stressful test I’ve ever took.I danced and cried when I got the results back.As of 2 weeks ago my Lyme disease and Rocky mtn fever is mostly gone I didn’t have the energy but I felt like dancing and crying it’s been a horrible test also.

I was never a big ladies man but before I got married I pulled off an awesome threesome with 2 female friends of mine. They were both very attractive and intelligent women which made it memorable. True story. We all 3 are happily married to other people now.

If they were unattractive and had limited candlepower it would be memorable as well. :-) You would just randomly shake your head in disgust at yourself and curl up in the fetal position with your woobie.
