Moments to Relive and Winners

Thank you again to everyone who agreed to host me on their blogs for my tour for Time & Circumstance. Im overwhelmed with how much support youve given me. I already knew it was going to be a tough time for the tour because of Applied Behavioral Analysis class. It wound up being an even more difficult time for a tour because of the death of a dear family friend, and so I didnt get the word out about the tour as much as Id planned. Im sorry, hosts.

The good news is I just finished the class, and so Im finally getting around to choosing winners. I put every commenters name in Random Name Picker (Winners are listed at the bottom of the post.)

I also want to thank the commenters, especially those who answered my question: “If you could relive any moment in time, what would it be?”

Here are some fantastic answers:

Seeing Lincoln give the Gettysburg Address.

Oh...question...Relive a moment in time...too many to mention, but flying into Paris for the first time I'd like to repeat that. Unfortunately, like all such moments, we only get to do them once.

That's a tough one, if I could relive one moment I think I would choose my first visit to Paris. It went by too fast T_T

As for a moment I would want to relive- maybe my release day for my book. It went by in a magical blur and reliving it would help me try to prolong the excitement. :) 

What moment would I relive? So hard. Probably the last outing we had before my dad passed away. My kids were little and he found such joy in going on rides with them at the local fairground. Lots of fun.

As for a moment I would like to relive- I am not sure. So many wonderful moments. Maybe reading Harry Potter for the first time. I love rereading it, but it would be amazing to read it with the same surprise and awe I had that very first time.

My moment in time would be Woodstock. I’d love to know what it felt like to be enmeshed in so much energy.

If I could relive a day, I'd pick my wedding or the day we adopted my daughter. The first moment I held her was priceless.

I’d save events from my life as a young wife, my daughter as she grew up, and my grandson who is growing up way too fast. I’d take about every four to six months, keep those times in an appropriate container so I could shake them out and relive those moments. 

Best moment -- wishing on a shooting star with my kiddos when they were wee folk. I think they'll always believe in magic because of that night. 

Last year, in the weeks before my mother died, I had the privilege of spending many moments with her, sometimes in complete silence. I used to sleep so well in the same room as my mother. Don't we all? Sometimes, in the quiet moments of my hectic life I relive that time. You never get it back again.

Please share your own favorite moment to relive.
