Best feelings in life are...

From the many comments regarding DomS getting his dream job prompted to think what have been the best feelings in my life, so far.
If I had to name the top three they world be:
The birth of my daughter
Passing my driving test
Gaining employment
These have most definitely been jump and and down with excitement moments Cool
What have been yours?

Re: Best feelings in life are...

There has been so many, it would probably take up a whole page....
start off, going to sea at the age of 7 and not being sea sick.
My father building my first "proper" bike, from parts in a scrap yard, because he could not afford to buy me a new one.
Going on my first "long distance" bike ride, by myself... ( about 50 miles round trip).

First flight .... very scary...
Arriving in Malta
Arriving in Mauritius
Being on an aircraft carrier, at night, and watching the night flying operations....... then again, watching a sunset, and sunrise whilst out at sea.  Crossing the equator twice...
Visiting many countries and making friends around the world, courtesy of the Royal Navy... and  .... getting paid for it....
Getting married for the first time.
Getting my first job after leaving the navy... and many many many more ...
Owning, and living on my own 70ft narrow boat... travelling the country on the canal system
Owning and running a 5 star AA Gold Award B&B ... 
Living in North Wales. 
Like I said...... and many many more...
Life has been good to me..... even in the bad times...

Living in Derbyshire next to the River Derwent with the dogs at my feet and listening on Internet radio to the local London traffic news...

The best feeling is when someone appreciates everything about you that someone else took for granted. I'm looking at you X Angry

Passing exams, children doing well, having good health, no debt, a good wife ( I think as I have only ever had one so can't compare Wink Wink ) and in general having a good life despite grumbling about things.

I've only ever really had two good things happen:
Meeting my missus
Knowing you motley lot  Crazy
Everything else has just been trouble, hassle, misery, distressing etc. Life has been exceptionally bad to me.
