The Order of Things

Are you ambitious for great things, or satisfied with very little? Illustrate. (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1111). 

My answer to this question hinges on clarification, so I ask for your help.   Please evaluate the following: the first clipped lock of a baby's hair; a photograph of your father as a young boy; a mother's creative handiwork tucked away on a shelf; the last anniversary card a wife shared with her husband before her death; the memory of a brother traveling miles to see a hospitalized sibling; memories of a vacation with friends long ago; the special time God spoke to one in an ordinary place; the night Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence, the moment Martin Luther King spoke his first words, the flash second when one's first vote was cast; the little yellow flower with the sweet aroma found when playing as a child; standing on the bank of a winding river at close of day, Roosevelt's ringing challenge not to fear, the memory of children abandoned in a car, Fleming's moment of insight regarding antibiotics, Jesus's delivery of the Beatitudes...order for me the significance of these things and I will better understand where my ambition lies.
