Woo & A Couple of Sisters (1984 ?) + Experiment #2


*************************************

The other night after the kids had gone to bed, I was outside walking alone when a question came to my mind. I had to think a little bit about what the answer to that question was to me, and then I thought that asking a thought provoking question might be fun to try for some posts.

The question is: What has been your greatest moment of glory?

The answer for me ended up being something that is kind of cliche, but is still true. My greatest moments of glory (or at least the moments that have felt like it) have been just a few hours after the births of most of my children.

I've been fortunate enough to have good births, so afterwards, I'm full of endorphins, feel great, can't sleep, and I'm surrounded by a sleeping husband and a brand-new, sleeping person.

I don't do anything except stare at the baby, maybe eat some licorice or drink some orange juice to celebrate, and bask in the good feeling, but those have been some of the best moments of my life.

I should concentrate on that more :).

What about you? What has been your greatest moment of glory?

    1. Yes, sometimes there's a reason some answers are cliche ... And you ask some good questions yourself, Ali :)

  2. I think for me, my happiest moment(s) was right after John and I got back together after being apart for a year. I knew that everything was going to be alright! :)

    1. Yes, feeling peace and a loss of anxiety can be a form of glory, can't it, Whitney?

  4. Nice photo :) I honestly sat and thought about this and haven't come up with anything. Perhaps I have no moments of glory? I think finishing my degree(s) are rather satisfyingly glorious. Happy moments, on the other hand, are another matter :)

    1. Yeah, it took me a while to figure it out for myself, as well. First, I had to figure out what glory meant to me :).

  5. Great question. Glory is different for everyone I guess. It's too bad something so miraculous like having a baby...I mean, seriously, creating a human being! is thought of as being cliche. Or meeting and marrying somebody for this life and the next is cliche. Those are "glory worthy"! I guess most of my life is a cliche because I feel my kiddos, who are now grown and have their own children, are glorious. I love my husband and feel we have a glorious marriage...not that we don't have trials, tribulation, worries, fun times, sad times, some days I really don't even think I like you times, hilarious times, spiritual times...you get the picture! I also think my profession is a glory moment. I work in surgery and I see the miracle of the human body and how it does it's best to overcome the damage we inflict on it. I see God's hand in that everyday. So you've posed a thoughtful question and I've taken too much space, but thanks for making me think a bit today and realizing how wonderful it is to be "cliche"..I wish it on everyone!

    1. Yes, Yaya :). I guess I'm still young enough to think for a couple of seconds that I can come up with something different than everyone else. But, it turns out the greatest of life's moments are the greatest for a reason, and can belong to almost everyone. I'm sure it's even more satisfying to see your own children find spouses and start families of their own :).

  6. that's such a sweet moment of glory! I haven't had any children yet so I can't really relate to that....yet ;) Our wedding was pretty awesome! Being able to have ALL the people we love together to celebrate our commitment together was a whirlwind of fun! I guess I'm pretty "cliche" too ;)

  7. Wow, that is so beautiful. Simple wonderful things like a new baby and orange juice- hmmm. The most glorious I remember feeling was Christmas morning as a kid (or maybe riding the indian jones ride at disneyland).

    The sister in the pink swimsuit is ADORABLE! Super cute.
