Ten Years I would Never Change

Roger  is our host this week for FM and here is his interesting  challenge..

For this week I would like you to answer one of the following questions (yes, I am giving you a choice); If you could pick any ten years over again, without changing them, which ten years would you choose and why? These years do not have to be consecutive years, but there should be ten, okay? Your second choice is, explain the wonders of living in orbit over the moon, or any planet of your choosing (not Earth) for ten years, describe what you think life would be like and if so inclined, describe the planet.

Boy are making me tax my soft good thing is the long term memory is still here..its the short term that's the first to go. Let me see...where was I...oh...ten years  I would not change.  OK here goes in chronological order. BTW...Being in orbit did not appeal to me...I get motion sickness!

1. 1946...first I had to be Mom said I was adorable and a good baby!
2.  1964....graduated from high school...I was sooooo happy..School was not my fave thing to do.
3.  1967...the birth of my first child...a pretty little girl named Kelly...I always wanted to be a Mother.
4.  1971...the birth of my second adorable Little girl named Tracy...she was n ornery little thing. and being a Mom was a very hard I decided that two kids was enough!
5.  1988...I met the love of my present Hubby Jer.
6.  1989...married the love of my life. Jer n I are still going strong almost 22 yrs later. He is my soul mate!!
7   1996...the birth of my first grand daughter...Carley a blond hair blue eyed beauty!
8.  1998...the birth of my second grand daughter...Casey, same as above
9.  2004... the birth of my third grand daughter...Gabrielle,  another beauty
10. 2007....the birth of my fourth grand daughter...Holly, yet another cutie came into my life.

I have many more years I would not change...but you only wanted to hear about ten of them!!! So there you are.
Thanks to Roger for hosting this month!   What a trooper you are!!!!  Now go and visit the others and see what they have to say!!!

At first I thought this would be a difficult assignment, but you have made it look easy! I may sign up for next week. Too tired to post one now.

Wonderful years. I thought about posting one, but tomorrow is a work day, so better not spend anymore time on this computer. Maybe next time.

Glad I read your FM post first, Janis. I was thinking Roger was asking for 10 straight good years. Shew! Your 'keeper" years are not hard to understand.

Wonderful years! I loved having my son - 1999 was the BEST!

All of your Top Ten are the stuff that life is made of! Here's to more great years and more grandchildren!
Your list of birth highlights reminded me of how I had all these college journals filled with fun and friends and then after I got married, it seemed like I only made an entry when I had a baby.

Very much like why I chose the years that I did.
That glass of wine is so tempting ! But wait, it's not Happy Hour yet. Oh, I forgot, at my age Happy Hour is a NAP.

Jan, you and I have two great minds with one single thought today.. Family is a joy, hold them dear!

No boys equals no fun. :)

I have something in common with your oldest daughter, that's the year I was born. My love of my life shares the birth year of your second daughter. Amazingly enough though, none of your grand daughters have the same birth years of my kids, close though (1990, 1994, 1997, 1999, 2002, 2006, 2009), so between yours and mine we pretty much covered a whole decade. :)

Yes, I just gave you more than you asked for, but that's how I roll sometimes. Thanks for participating.

I ducked out of this one. Wish I'd had inspiration like you.
