For One More Day

on

Over the weekend, amidst all the cooking and “holloweening” I’ve done, I am glad to say that I have managed to squeeze in some reading.   The timing couldn’t be more perfect.  Mitch Albom’s “For One More Day” is a wonderful book for the occassion.

For One More Day

For One More Day  tells a story of a mother, a son, and the extraordinary relationship they have that reaches beyond life.  It is a beautiful, hauntingly rich novel about family, and the chances we miss.  The pages are pretty thin and one can even finish the whole book in one sitting.

As for me, I took some slow time reading it.  I found such wisdom, hope, and compassion in the pages, I couldn’t help mark some of them.  Two of my favorite lines in the story are:

  • “Every family is a ghost story”
  • “What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one?”

Incidentally, Oprah had the book made into a tele-movie, under Harpo Films production.   Lead stars are Micheal Imperioli (playing Chick Benetto) and Ellen Burstyn (as Posey).   You can catch it airing this November in the Hallmark channel.
