For One More Day

Sometimes if I get home in time, I catch Oprah on time shift (Thank you Rogers Digital Cable!). Today's episode discussed Mitch Albom's latest novel titled, "For One More Day". The Author may sound familiar, he was the emotional brainiac behind "Tuesdays with
". A heartwarming read that makes you reevaluate and rethink the stages of your life and the importance of the people along the way. There is some focus on how truly short life is and how one should never take it for granted. Anyway, Albom's latest book " the story of a mother and a son, and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond." "For One More Day" " a haunting novel about the family we love and the chances we miss." "It explores the question: What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one?"

[Information in quotations was taken from (].

Through this topic, Oprah explored the question, who would you spend one more day with? She asked this of many people and numerous celebrities, including Jane Seymour and Nick Lachey. There answers were simpler then you may think. It really got me thinking...Who would I spend one more day with? I always thought I knew whom I would choose... but now I am not so sure. I mean, could I PLEASE spend one more day with a number of individuals? As you will see, there are a handful of people I would love to spend one day with-if I could!
There is Jay, Sean, Nana & Pa, Great E...I could go on. They have ALL touched me in SO many ways that I wish with all of my heart, I could have, just one more day, with each of them!

After the episode, I found myself perplexed with my own thoughts of the people I have lost... How sad to have lost so many wonderful individuals-but how damned lucky to have been touched by them and to have shared time with them! So now, my friends, I must go, purchase, and read "For One More Day", and probably cry and laugh, because someone in this novel by Mitch Albom, must have the opportunity to spend just one more day, with someone they love or loved dearly.
