    Mine:

    '99- gave birth to DS, aged just 17.
    '12- DD arrived.
    Those are the main two- the greatest 2 events in my life by far- they are reason I was put on this earth.

    2001- the suicide of the girlfriend of my brother, when she just 21. They had been together since their early teens and I was very close to her, she was the closest thing to a sister I'd ever had. She lived with me. She was the first death I'd ever experienced.
    I still think of her almost daily and dream about her frequently.

    2004- the death of my papa (mum's father). Changed my entire outlook on life, completely took away any shred of innocence I'd had regarding the world. It took me a full year to begin to get over his death. I thought that after he died I'd never feel "normal" again.


    2008- the year my aunty died from lung cancer changed me to the core. She was only 58 and it really hit me hard because she was my mum's sister, they are close in age and it terrified me that it could just happen and could happen to my own mum. I think that with the deaths of my grandparents it was heartbreaking but kind of expected as they were all in their 80's. But losing a family member aged just 58 affected me badly. Somethng inside me changed, even though I was not particularly close to her, it just pulled the rug from under me big time.

    2007 was life changing for me, possibly in the most profound way. I encountered events that shaped my entire life and not in a good way- I can't go into detail about this particular year, as much as I'd like to get it off my chest, there's no way I can.

    I had to quote you, PippaG, as I thought I'd read it wrong when you said that your mum died just 1 and a half weeks ater being diagnosed. I can't even begin to imagine the shock and disbelief you must have felt over such a tragic event <img src="images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" smilieid="11" class="inlineimg" <img src="images/smilies/hugs.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Hugs" smilieid="35" class="inlineimg"
    It was the worst moment of my life, when my dad told me that they had found these tumours and that nothing could be done, we thought she had gallstones. It has changed me in so many ways and I struggled to cope for a long time. 9 years on Monday since she passed

    I would struggle to cope, I don't know how people get through such utterly devasting events

    2012 was a great year for me.

    Bought a house, married my DH, went on a massive honeymoon to USA + Canada and conceived our baby girl who is due in 5 weeks.

    2002 met dh. Best thing that ever happened to me.
    I find it amazing when people leave their country of birth and move to a new country- I don't think I could do it; not alone, anyway. So very brave!
    Gothel, where are you from originally? Did you move by yourself?

    I also remember you sharing this.

    No words, so so very sorry.

    I guess it's true that time is a healer. I'll never get over it but I've learnt to live with it. It made us live our life fully and we moved over here from the UK the following year to begin our new adventure.

    2012 (33) My best girlfriend was murdered by her husband. I am still not over this.
    same yr i started dating the man of my dreams.
    2013 got engaged.
    Shocking, I'm very sorry that you had to experience such pain

    I hope that your best friend's husbandwas put away for a very long time. Too bad the law doesn't see it as a life for a life and lock people who murder up for life.
