Forgive me for being more than a decade behind the reading clubs. But, I found all of the books written by Mitch Albom in my mom's bookshelf. I had always wanted to read Tuesdays with Morrie. This week I am.
I am moved by the profound words and the acute timing. Today as I read these passages I knew I was onto something:
"Everyone knows they're going to die but nobody believes it. If we did we would do things differently."
"Do what the Buddhists do. Every day, have a little bird on your shoulder that asks, 'Is today the day? Am I ready? Am I doing all I need to do? Am I being the person I want to be?' "
