What were the best years of your life?

For me, every single year for the past 12 years have had sad events, major life changes, intense anxiety inducing situations occur. Cancer scares, cancer itself, almost a year with a boss from hell, deaths, court cases, dealing with Alzheimers' , broken arm, job losses..

When was life easy? Certainly not in 1989 in which we dealt with a hospitalized child, a dying parent, and a miscarriage all within weeks. But up until then, I guess were the golden years raising Josh and Shanna. We were very busy. Besides the full time jobs, we were coaching various sports teams and I led a Girl Scout troop for 6 years. I also was usually training for some type of distance event: marathons, triathlons, and long-distance biking.
We didn't have a chance to travel much besides family vacations.

But not all has been bad: we do have 3 healthy adorable grandchildren and for now, seem to have our health. I have been able to travel most years and hope again to do so soon.
