Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question/statement is . . .

“Besides my family, the best thing that’s ever happened to me is . . .”

This is for Mom Spotted . . . The best thing that has ever happened to me is . . . you’ll find out in the next couple of months. :-)

    Hey, you didn’t tell us yours.

    … breaking up with Hubs when Johnny was born. I was 18 and we weren’t married yet. The 2 years gave me a chance to learn who I was, live independently, and know that I can do it on my own. It let me find myself before settling down with Hubby. Being together since I was 12 I needed that. Now I know I love him because I want to not because I need too!

    I have to second what Gale said and go with Salvation as well. Forgiveness for my many, many mess-ups and unconditional love is the first and best thing that I’ve had happen to me in my life. :) Happy Friday!

    getting to visit my grandfather in Germany the summer after I graduated college. It was my first time seeing another country, a chance to get to spend time with my grandfather before he died and the change of scenery I think really helped me put my life in perspective for the better.

    So many wonderful things have happened in my life… I would say getting to live so many wonderful places while growing up! What a grand life growing up as the daughter of hippy/gypsies!

    Best thing that ever happened to me: Hrm… That is a tough one. Other than my 7 kids and boyfriend.

    OHHHH… I know. Being adopted.

    The family I was born into were abusive and I would not have turned into the person I am now if the state hadn’t taken me away to safety. Having tracked down the family and knowing them, I was lucky to get out at a young age and not have residual scars from that life.

    I was truly adopted into a safe and loving home, though I put them through hades… they still loved me!

    Hmm, besides my husband and kids, I would have to say taking skills and connections I’ve made and turning into business opportunities. You never know what life has in store, and following what you believe can lead to some amazing things!

    Useful information. Lucky me I discovered your website accidentally,
    and I am shocked why this coincidence didn’t happened earlier!
    I bookmarked it.
