I have two. Hubby and I have come from being very poor (living in a travel trailer on his mother's property with "junk" cars that barely ran) to having 75 acres of property, horses, a decent home (it's not what I really want, but we don't have to make payments on it and we are "building" how we want) and two outstanding children who are soon to graduate (in the next two years.)

My second major accomplishment is being alive and who I am today. It's a long struggle, but my xh physically & mentally abused me, beat me so badly one night that I lost my baby at almost 26 weeks and had to bury her. I used to want to die. I'm here today, happy, healthy and no longer want to die. I want to watch my children graduate, have a career they love, get married and have thier own children. So, between the two they are my greatest accomplishments.

getting back on my feet is my biggest accomplishment. a year ago i was homeless sleeping on my mother in laws couch and my kids were in fostercare waiting for me to get an apt. Today i've got my kids back and i've had the same place for 10 months (although my landlord is saying i haven't paid rent in 10 weeks and i owe $1830 so i have to get ahold of a lawyer to see what i can do).

Being who and what I am today, my siblings have not been able to grow beyond and let things go as in the past.

Being married 17 years and counting! which to me, is the most important thing in life to give to my children of myself and my husband- that strong foundation from the beginning.

Excelling at being a mom... doing things I never imagined I could do or would do

and watching my children succeed, means I certainly have accomplished doing something right in this lifetime ;)
