Okay so it's not a story type thing but... kinda.
If you have ever listened to the song Name by the Goo Goo Dolls maybe you have hurd the line "did you loose yourself somewhere out there did you get to be a star" Well the time you got to be a star, and everyone has, the time when you were in the spotlight of your mind the time when your smile was the widest one in the room Image... eaven if you know that no one else knew why you had this huge grin!! so go ahead when did you get to be a star?

I think the biggest grins...had to be 4 times for me....

The births of my 3 children and my grandson.
Nothing in the WORLD like a freshly born baby...the wonder of it all. To know that body had lived inside THIS body...wow.
And then to see the child of your child...wooooo!!!
The biggest wonder in the world for me...the biggest grins and the most important of any star time..??? Norah, Joseph, Emmalee and Tristan

Well Willow as the song say did you ever loose your self some where out there ,Well I have to say i tried very hard to loose myself to realize that you can not loose your self ,you may destroy parts of you and your dreams but it always comes back to you being you and as I see it you and everyone is a star for we are a very special and unique individuals.....But yes there are very special moments that make one smile from the inside out just like the moment I first held my Daughter in my arms and knew she was mine and the first time I knew you were in this world ...Now to know in just a few short moments in the large scheme of things I will be able to hug you for the very first time,and to meet my sister for the very first time so yes I know what it s like to feel like a star .....And YOU and Your MOTHER have made me feel that way....

Yes I am a star, and I have lost myself out there also. Stardom didn't see me as a mother, but I love the smiles and cry of a newborn baby....wow! Stardom found me when that little twinkle in my eye became a reality. That dream became my. Anytime you sucess in something of your choice you are a star!!!

to be alone walking in the woods, when I feel that I am being looked at, I glance up to see a female deer not ten feet away, her big brown eyes look at me and I look at her, softly I say good morning, she shakes her head, I turn and walk away, only to find her following me, we walked side by side not three feet apart for half an hour, I was one with the woods and one with the deer, I was not the star but the void of space delighting in the stars that were all around me....

when something I've envisioned, as a vague thought or plan becomes a reality, maybe a grant for a school, a community acess TV program, or a phonecall, saying
"I got the ___ you sent me, thank you"
I've not had the experience of being a father, but, I'm in awe of the "Mom's" description of giving birth! Basically, we give ourselves our own Oscars!


Cool beans, Nathen! I followed a deer for 1/2 hour once, & I knew the deer knew I was there! it waited for me, at times. That was In Olympic Natl Park, Washington I was age 11! never forgot that thrill!

I have to say that my biggest smile, if not on the outside but on the inside, was one time that I was with my nephew. He was about one at the time. We were shopping, and he had started to not feel very well, so he wanted me to hold him. I was looking at some clothes, not realizing that he was studying me as I held him. He didn't speak too much then, but managed to say "Ann Nih" (translation:Aunt Nic). I said without looking down "What Baby?" Then I just looked down, and he was looking at me with the sweetest most loving smile. He was saying "I love you." in his way. I have never felt so special, or such love.... Wow, it's bringing tears to my eyes to repeat it now, and that was 3years ago.ImageImage God help me when I have my own...I'll be the biggest sap.

Aunt Nic

Willow I won my star when first I beheld your face, when first we embraced in the chill moonlight, when over the ages we once more united and became as one, Oh sweet Willow the stars have always been there for me to see but I was blind to the beauty until I shared it with you.
Yours faithfully
Wesley

I felt like a star on the mountian, scaling rocks, something I've never done before...
looking around at my friends and the children and thinking it doesn't get much better than this....
