There are so many things that make me feeling over the moon.

  One, I was meeting some one whom I loved and when I missed him when I was a girl.

  Two, I was a student and I studied hard, finally, I had got to be admitted to the university by the exam.

  Three, I got the first income by the first job, although, it is so less that it is a little pity.

  Four, I got the driving license and I drived the car firstly.

  Five, I got the accounting qualification certificate by exam when I was 35 years old. I used to think I would never learn and test again since I left shool, even if I did not pass the exam.

  Six, it is the most important thing that I have became a mother. The moment when I became the mother was so happy so excited.

   And so on…
