For One More Day by Mitch Albom

For One More Day by Mitch Albom was a gift my husband got for his birthday 4 months ago.  After his finished reading it he promptly placed it on my nightstand for me to read.  It took me a while to get to it, but I did enjoy it.  I had read Tuesdays with Morrie by Albom previously and also enjoyed it.  This book is about Chick who has lived a life that he is not proud of.  His parents divorced when he was young and his father disappeared, and his mother he took for granted.  He gets his priorities mixed up and has really messed up his life (divorced, only daughter didn't invite to her wedding, no job) and is ready to take his life when suddenly he is given a whole day with his mom who had died several years earlier.  Who wouldn't want just one more day with someone that they loved who had already passed on?  So many things to say and do.  This is a short read and gives one lots to think about--mainly we should never take our loved ones for granted and try to live our lives so when a loved one does leave us, we have as few regrets as possible because we cherished them and took advantage of the time we had with them.
