Blog Every Day in September - Day 6: The Greatest Moments of My Life

I decided to join a blog challenge to blog every day in September.  It is hosted by Karissa at A Fresh Start on a Budget.

Today's topic is: What have been the three greatest moments of your life?

I have lived a fairly happy life my whole life, but it's hard to pick three moments that were "the greatest".

I did love the trip I took to Israel 5 years ago.  If you are Jewish, you can apply for a program called birthright between the ages of 18-26.  They pretty much let everyone go on a free trip to Israel before they turn 26.  I did have to pay for my airfare to and from New York, but Birthright took care of everything else. I had an amazing time on my trip and found a connection with Israel that I didn't have before it.

This is a shot of our whole group at the Wall in Jerusalem.  I am in the front on the left with the light blue shirt on.

Another really fun weekend in my life was my mom's 50th birthday weekend.  We had a ton of family come in for the whole weekend.  We had a birthday party and a brunch at our house.  It was so much fun!  And her birthday is on Halloween...woohoo!

I'm on the left again!

Bringing Hunter home was a great moment also.  Our last dog, Argus, had been gone about a year by the time we found Hunter.  We had gone to animal shelters from as far north as Santa Maria and as far south as San Pedro.  We spent a long time looking for our little terror!

This is Hunter when we first brought him home.

What have been your best moments?

Oh, I've always wanted to go to Israel! I think it would be so neat to explore a place where Jesus once was! So neat!
