How do you know you've succeeded?

As a mother, is it when your child graduates from college or maybe even high school? Or is it as easy as making it through one day with no bruises, broken bones or tummy aches to cry about?

As a wife, is it when you hit the quarter of a century mark? Or is it remaining faithful to your adorable but sometimes extremely irritating husband for all of your life together? Or is it just, being there?

As a woman, is it when you have achieved every one of your goals and retired at the age of 50? Or is it standing up for what you believe is right, and coming out on top?

I, as a mother, a wife and a woman, have not experienced the true joy of success. I hope to see it one day soon.
