Happy 50th…to my parents!

10 Aug

Today my parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary!

It is an amazing achievement to stick together so long through all the ups and downs, to build a life from their beginning together as newly-married graduate students with $12 in their pockets, the promise of a job in New York City and a baby on the way.

Today they have two kids, a terrific daughter-in-law, two grandchildren, and a lot more. They travel and cook and bicker, and socialize and entertain, drink wine, and talk, enjoying the fruits of a satisfying and busy retirement after many years of work, mostly helping other students find their way in a confusing world.

So, I am very happy that we will all be together to celebrate this momentous milestone. Who is luckier than us?

Congratulations Myrna & Pedro!
