Happiest day of your life

 Our Town is about the fictional town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire. In the first act, Emily Webb and George Gibbs are children together; in the second act, they marry; in the third, Emily has died in childbirth and is looking back from beyond the grave with other dead citizens of Grover's Corners, and she decides to revisit the happiest day of her life, her 12th birthday.

Saw this in the writer's almanac this morning along with the poem , I apologize for the gloomy track I seem to be walking on today.  BUT the premise is a hard one for me to answer.  I can invoke moments that would qualify for the happiest, but only moments.
