What are you most proud of?

Job?
Children?
Physical Accomplishment?

I would have to say my children are my greatest accomplishment. When I see children their ages and their behaviour, I am so glad my sons are respectable young men.

I had them young and close together, and it wasn't always easy, but they're my buddies. I am always proud of them.

Maybe not "proud"... but I'm shocked that I've survived this long.

I would love to share what I am most proud of, but it could come back to haunt me (not, it's not naughty!).

I am most proud of the next poster. He or she is of the highest moral substance, never fails to use his or her blinker, and does not abuse the caps lock key.

Almost forgot.....I actually am very proud of my overwhelming sense of humility.

I am probably the most humble person that you will ever encounter. Honest.

I am always up for bragging about my kids. Daughter; High school teacher in ESL in DC and seriously talented brewer. Son; Engineering student at Purdue now on an internship with Union Pacific.
The single accomplishment of my own is putting together a performance of Bach's 4th Brandenburg concerto. My brother and I play recorder but live on opposite sides of the country. We had challenged each other to learn to play thes very difficult piece. When he came out for a visit some years ago, I saw an opportunity for us to play this together. I told him only that we would play it together but didnt tell him that I put together the rest of the parts; 2 violins, viola, cello and harpsichord. His birthday present.

You kinda look like Mr. Bean in that photo!

I'm most proud of my daughters, not because they're any better in any other way shape or form when compared to other children/adults, its because they're my best friends and the best thing thats ever come into my life, period.
