50 Things: Milestones

31 Oct

I thought about this one for a while, and in the most selfish of ways.  I thought about all of the milestones that I have hit.  Graduating High School, my four-year wedding anniversary (five years in just a few weeks!), the birth of our son.  The more I thought about every single milestone I have hit, I thought about the ones that are important to my loved ones.  My sons first sentence (“I want the fries!”), his first steps, first solid foods.

The longer I thought about it, the more I imagined our milestones being twinkly lights.  Each one that was conquered, would light up, and add itself to the bright little picture that has become our past triumphs.  Soon our little family portrait of successes seemed like a cityscape from a birds-eye-view, and I felt a swelling of pride in my heart.  How proud I am of my son, my husband, my brother, sister and parents.  Such great things we have accomplished, and such great things we have yet to do.

So far, what has been your biggest milestone?
