The Most Important Day?
Real Simple is sponsoring an essay contest.Â The subject: The Most Important Day of My Life.Â I doubt I’ll enter the contest, but the subject did get my brain whirring a bit.
My most important day . . . the day I decided I started kindergarten? Education is important.Â The day I graduated from college?Â The day I got on the plane to leave for Africa?Â The day I got off the plane in Africa?Â The day my class and I gave our first yearbook to the publisher?Â The day I became an aunt?Â The day I got to hand out Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes?Â The day I started in my new position in Colorado?Â The day I chose to change my eternity? The day I bought my house?Â The day I evacuated in the middle of a war? I don’t know.Â Â I don’t have the regular milestones that many people might identify as their most important days—a marriage proposal, a wedding, the birth of a child.
I can’t say that my life has one outstanding day that defines the rest of my days.Â Rather, I feel like my blessing has been to experience many extraordinary days.
