On November 4th, ABC aired Mickey’s 90th Spectacular. On the 18th of this month, Mickey Mouse turns 90 and this was his big birthday celebration on tv. Did you watch? It was amazing. If you didn’t watch it, I added a link to a way to watch it on the top line of this post, and if that doesn’t work for you then lots of it is on YouTube. Did you shed tears? I absolutely did.
While we were watching this I was thinking about how most people want to leave their mark on this world and be remembered somehow after they are gone. What an amazing legacy Walt Disney left behind! He gave us Mickey Mouse! I think he knew Mickey and the rest of the Disney world would be a gift to us, but I wonder if he knew just how impactful and magical it would all be to some people. I, for one, am forever grateful for Walt and for this world he created and I am especially thankful that he gave us my #1 favorite, most special icon, Mickey Mouse.
