30 Day Blog Challenge ... Day 8

30 Day Blog Challenge
{Day 8}
"A Moment You Felt The Most Satisfied With Your Life"

Today is Day 8 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge!  Today's topic is a moment you felt most satisfied with your life.  This is another hard one for me to write, but I guess that's why they call this a challenge!  My problem is picking just one moment.  I feel several could fit this topic, and I don't want to rank my "moments", in fear that I may undermine the signifigance of another.  Am I making sense?  :)

To stay true to this challenge, I am going to go ahead and pick just one.  I debated going with the birth of my first child, and the joy of becoming a mother.  I'm not downplaying that moment, or any other in any way by my official choice.  Why does this feel so guilt provoking?

So here it is!  The moment I felt most satisfied with my life was when I took the leap, and decided to go back to school.  Having all my children very young left me with putting off many goals for myself.  I wanted to simply focus on being a mom and enjoying every moment.  As they, and I got older, I realized it was time to put some goals back into the running.  First stop, college!

Not only was the decision to go back to school one that would be a career dream for me and a stable future income for my family, I wanted my girls to see the importance of education and perseverance.  I constantly drill into them the importance of getting a good, strong education.  They can also see that mom not only says these things, she follows them.

Now that I'm in my last year of college and on my way to my Associates this spring, I feel like I can't go anywhere but up from here!  I've been an on and off stay at home mom (more on than off) for most of their lives, and I am ready to finish my education and land that dream career!  I'm looking forward to working in a field I love, and having the benefits that come with it to share with my family.
