This best thing could be something that you work hard for some time and you had finally achieved it such as graduating a degree, passing a board exam, getting the job you like most and with satisfying compensation; and others such as stroke of luck like winning the lottery, winning a competition, and the list go on.
I have ADD and during high school I wasn't the best student. They didn't have extra help or even know about ADD back then. My oldest daughter has it too and I was able to get her assistance and while doing so learned a new way to study. I decided that I would take some college classes. I found a program that had Saturday classes and arranged for my ex to have the girls for the day. I had 3 classes per semester, was in school on Saturday from 8:30 to 5 and Mon thru Friday I studied 2 hours at night once the girls were in bed. I completed 4 semesters and out of those I made the Dean's list 3 times. I was so proud of that accomplishment. I never expected that would ever happen. And by learning to study differently it also helped me to advance in the job market.
That's wonderful! I know the feeling; the feeling of achieving something that means a lot to you.
Thanks for sharing.
My two daughters. I was told that I would most likely never be able to have biological children, but low and behold, I have the two most beautiful girls anyone could imagine.
the best thing was the worst thing at the same time...bittersweet....
The best thing that ever happened to me was the return of my cat. I'd picked him out as a baby and I loved that little kitten more than anything else. He was my first pet and when he was hit by a car one summer, I was absolutely heartbroken. He ran off into the woods and despite searching constantly work a week, we never found him and assumed he had died.
I went off to college that fall, and shortly before Halloween when it turned cold, I got a call from my mom saying that he had come home. His hip had been dislocated and had healed wrong, but other than that, it was the best thing that happened to me.

I thought it would be uplifting, to hear remarks about the best thing in our day...or any day.For me, I reached a new goal at work, I'm going out to dinner with Hubby and Middle Son, we'll eat burgers and listen to some live music....and it's a beautiful day, even if I am in Florida. ...
