winnersIt’s a good feeling when you’re the best at something.

Have you ever ascended to the upper echelon at your job, a sport, a hobby, as a parent, a spouse, or a grandparent?

I’m sure there’s at least one time in your life that you knew you were at the top of the mountain.  There’s a feeling of pride when you’re recognized for something you do better than anyone else.
