The happiest I’ve ever been was when I too went away to college & escaped from my small midwestern town & joined the world of the intellect & art & the melting pot of peoples from all over the world. I couldn’t wait to explore all that the world had to offer, namely exotic travel & interesting relationships...I embraced an adventurous life all thru my 20s & 30s & that is when I truly felt the most alive!

I try to be happy all the time.  I had/have great parents that were good role models.  Probably the most happiest I have been, other than the first year of marriage, was when my two daughters graduated from high school.  As a sitting school board member, I was able to be a part of their graduation ceremonies.  It was my honor to accept the class on behalf of the Board of Trustees.  I said the same thing each time. "Bon Voyage!" Good journey!  Not many people can say that they had this honor.  I am truly blessed

I think it was when I went to college and met this wonderful person who couldn't speak English.  He could say only 2 words, hi, and bye.  We smiled and laughed a lot.  After, we dated for a year, and his English picked up, he proposed to me but my parents were against it, my parents wanted me to marry a person in the military. ( I couldn't stand military because they are about power,control and force).

I knew he was for me and he loved me so much. He was from Tonga, the Friendly Islands.The Tongans are so friendly and have so much LOVE!

I was blessed with 1 girl and 4 boys.  They are my light of the world and now have 3 grandchildren-2 girls and 1 boy and they are my universe- full of love and light and compassion.

My happiest time was when I went away for college.  I felt independent and eager to discover lots of things about the world.

My happiest years were when I was divorced after being married for 10 years.  I had an unhappy childhood thanks to a controlling father and a spiteful mother.  I got married to a nice man but it wasn't for me.  We had two small children but I still couldn't stand being married.  He moved close by so the children still had both parents, just in different houses.  I worked three jobs and was able to take my sons with me to the weekend job.  The third job I did from home.  For 25 years I stayed divorced, raised my sons, did what I wanted, and was very happy.  I didn't remarry until my sons were independent adults 25 years later.  Those 25 years living independently were the happiest years of my life.  I'm now 78 years old, and still consider those years the best.
