No, during that time we had moved to Washington State. I was in El Paso from 1944 to 1962 and periodically visited for a while after that. However, since my grandmother passed away about 1985, we did not go after that.

Nellie, we were in El Paso from early 1990 to mid 1995. Were you there during that time?

emoticon SO VERY MUCH for asking this question Carol. Especially, since I woke up today to the sad news that my only living Uncle had passed in the night. I thought to myself, I am so happy I already gave notice that I would not be able to do the QOTD.

My answer to the question is the day I got married was the happiest, I remember having SO MUCH FUN and then, I was sad because my Mother and Father could not be there because they had both passed years before. We lit candles in memory of them to show that they were with us in spirit.

I remember hearing that you gotta know the bad to know the good in life. Perhaps, it is true. I think it is. emoticon

Carol, that makes perfect sense.

My saddest day was when my precious father passed away, 22 years ago. I was only 29 years old and he had seen my youngest child only once. Even after all these years, I still tear up over him being gone. I sure do miss him. I still remember that day, like it was yesterday, when my mom called me to tell me that he had passed away during the night in his sleep. I answered the phone, she said dad was dead, I screamed "no", backed into the wall and slid right down it into the floor. I sat there and cried for a very long time. I was devastated!! My DH had to get emergency leave from the Army and we (I should say he, as I was not in any emotional state to be driving) drove from Fort Bliss/El Paso Texas to Tulsa Oklahoma for the funeral. I cried pretty much the entire drive. And the funeral & activities afterward were pretty much a blur too, as I cried most of the time. DH also drove us most of the way back home, but I had to drive a bit. The Army did not give him much emergency leave, so we were in a tight schedule to get back to the base. And since DH had to have a break while we were still on the road, I did do some driving. But it was not because I felt "up to it". For the next 5 years I cried every time I drove by a cemetery, and almost EVERYTHING reminded me of my precious dad. To this day, I still miss him very much........but the hurt has subsided quite a bit.

My happiest day was marrying my sweet DH. I would NEVER even consider trading him in for another. If he dies before I do, there will NOT be another marriage......as I KNOW that there is no other man out there that could or would come even close to replacing my honey.

MAKE 2018 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU!!

I'm sorry, I meant the combination of each together in one day. LOL. So- I was so happy to see my daughter married but so sad at the same time. Hope that makes sense.

It is hard to say which was the most. I know my high school graduation was one since I knew I wouldn't be seeing some of my friends again, but I was glad to graduate. I think each child's birth was definitely up there since I didn't know for a while whether I would be able to have children since I had so many miscarriages. The marriage of my oldest daughter and also the marriage of my youngest son were those mixed feelings type days also.

My saddest??? All my school days. I was thrilled to graduate and leave.

My happiest was when I met my husband and fell in love!! We will celebrate 42 yrs. soon and we are still happy! Of course, I could also say the wedding of our children and birth of our 3 granddaughters.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

What is the "happiest-saddest" day of your life?

Mine is the day my youngest daughter got married. I wanted to spend that day happily watching her take that step as a wife and mom, not just as a mom. My ex was "barely there", we had to have a conference beforehand with the pastor as he wanted to know what my DD wanted said as far as "Who gives her away". Ex was not present, he's alcoholic and not to be trusted necessarily. We worked it out well, but I can not tell you how happy/sad I was during the wedding, and then especially at the reception. I was actually just miserable during that reception. I have been sad ever since that I couldn't enjoy my daughter's wedding.
