I haven't finished this book, I just bought it yesterday, but I am already half way through. This is one of the best stories I have ever read. It really made me think about my relationship with my mother, and how much I will miss her when she "goes home". It also reminded me of the sacrifices my mother has made for me and my siblings, and how we don't appreciate the life she gave up, the stuggles she has lived thru and how really she gave her life for us. Why do we leave so many things left unsaid? Chick has struggled all his life, and when it's almost too late he finally begins to really "see" his mother. So much pain and heartache could have been avoided in his life and in all of ours if we just took the time.
I adore Mitch Albom's books. "For one more day" is probably my favorite novel of his, given it is a tribute to mothers. Albom has a way to impact and make you reevaluate the way you look at different aspects of your life; every one of his novels teach you important lessons. I caught myself teary-eyed towards the end of the story.
"For one more day" is a short and easy read; I definitely recommend this book!
