The best was meeting the most amazing woman I've ever met, and the worst was letting her pass me by.

I found out I'm going to be a mom! \(^o^)/But had the worst morning sickness during my busiest time of the year. (。-_-。)

Lots of good things, best being the birth of another healthy, bouncing grandchild just two days ago.

Hard to think of anything bad enough to count as 'the worse thing that happened'. Maybe the worst thing that didn't happen was I didn't win any lotteries, didn't get around to remodelling the house, didn't lose as much weight as I'd have liked to lose. Those are all good things waiting to happen next year. Maybe.

Between Birth and Death, I do not get too excited in life. I am very grateful that God has been very good to me everyday.

So many good things, including a successful business trip to Japan and meeting former president Carter.

The best thing is a growing faith in and relationship with my Creator, which enables me to regard the "worse things" in a very different light.

yabit, good post. Sounds like you have seen enough in life as well. I am very thankful that I am in peace with God. Every night, I meditate on the deck looking up in the sky and counts zillions of stars. I feel a mystery of life in ONE. One in all, all in one.......life is always beautiful , I am glad I am in IT.....

Worst was getting screwed over at work and finally deciding, after a decade of putting up with, that it's time to leave Japan. Best, getting two overseas employers chasing me (though no firm offers yet).

Worst--my mother's long, difficult recovery from surgery.

Best--everyone in my family, including my mother, is healthy now.

Worst: to have lost my most loyal and loving friend, Silky, a French bulldog without having the chance of saying how much I love her too. Or the chance to save her.

Best: closing business for two days to go to a gracious family meeting.
