I've gotten a lot of congratulations this week on hitting a milestone this week, and I want to thank everyone who's reached out to me. I appreciate it!
On the subject of achievements, though, a million is really only a number, a mass accumulation of points cobbled together from a laundry list of thousands of games to choose from. All I really needed to do was have a lot of time on my hands and the persistence to do it.
However, as big as that might seem, this next week my own parents are going to one-up me.
Next week is my parents' 50th wedding anniversary.
Let that sink in for a minute... it's their 50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!!
How many people are fortunate enough to even make it to 50 years old? How many of those have even known someone else for 25 or 30 years? Now imagine being married to the same person... FOR 50 YEARS!!!
It's hard even for me to comprehend that.
My parents are two of the most wonderful people I've ever known, and to be honest, I could never have wished for two better people to have spent my life to this point with. They fact that they tolerated me for as long as I've been around has made living with each other a cakewalk, I'm sure.
And so, on August 31st, 2019, my parents (Mama and Papa Morning) are celebrating 50 wonderful years together, and I'd like all of you to be a part of it. If you could take a moment and send them texts on their anniversary, it would mean so much to me. (I know I've asked for birthday texts to my mom before, and she's appreciated all of them. This is a slightly bigger thing.
[Edit: thanks everyone for the wonderful texts!!!]
A simple "Happy 50th Anniversary!" or whatever you feel like is fine, and please pass this along! 50 years just doesn't happen very often, and I know this would really mean a lot to my mother. (She won't see this coming, and couldn't ever expect it.)
Thank you in advance, and may all of you experience the kind of joy in your lives that they have in theirs. I love you Mom and Dad!
