    I love how OP wanted stories to "make her smile," with a happy undertone and to make a feel good post. But the nature of the people on this site and in this thread still manage to turn it negative. Regardless of which you agree with (children or no children for example), it makes me laugh how naturally negative people are.

    I love how you point this out, but then you were one of the first people to bring such negativity by critiquing other's greatest accomplishments. Gotta love irony.

    1) I never said I didn't fall in to this category; so right, "irony"
    2) I never was negative, I just simply stated I agreed with someone else's comment
    3) You are just mad because you fit solidly into the category of people I was talking about
    4) Have a nice day

    My 2nd greatest accomplishment was I didn't turn out like this guy, or Norm.

    My greatest accomplishment is that I am still alive. It really is amazing to me that I am still alive, but I am glad I am. :smile:

    Can we please just stick to what this thread was actually meant to be about. OP wanted to know what our greatest accomplishments are. That's what we should be posting here, not getting at each other's virtual throats. As a certain controversial, and just maybe wise man said many many years ago, "can't we all just get along"?

    I'm pretty offended by the people who don't think that having children is an accomplishment. I'm 26, I got my degree, moved across the world, got married, got financially secure, got pregnant, gave birth, and my daughter's ashes sit on a shelf in my living room. You can be damned sure that she is my greatest accomplishment, and I would do anything, anything for the privilege of raising her and telling her that every single day.

    My next greatest accomplishment will be losing this extra weight, and the next one after that will be having healthy, living children. And I just realised I don't even care if that's good enough for people! So I'm not offended any more :)

    It's the internet... It happens. Although it does suck when people you try to be friends with end up being jerks.

    Anyway...thank y'all for respinding. When I have more time this afternoon I'll post mine. :)

    I was going to say my 5 kids were my greatest accomplishment, but after this thread I'm going to say my greatest accomplishment was learning how to use the ignore feature.

    At 49, I have to be honest and say my greatest accomplishment are definately my 5 children aged 7-30. They may not be mine biologically but i have raised them since toddlers, im proud to call myself their "mom" and the fact they were/are long term fosterkids just meant they grew in my heart instead of my belly xx:bigsmile:

    Pretty sure you're proving the point that parental involvement makes a huge difference. Just think... Had you had decent parental guidance, maybe you wouldn't have turned out to be a giant *kitten*. :flowerforyou:
