Tuesdays With Morrie

Tuesdays With Morrie - Mitch Albom I cried.

I usually do not read books like this. First it is contemporary, secondly I know it will make me cry and not the good kind of cry. It will make you cry because you feel the desparation and hopelessness we all could face some day.

But the story is written beautifully. There is wisdom to be learned. I finished reading the book the first time. I cried. And I started reading the book for the second time. Then I cried again. This is not a book that I would rave about or recommend to friends. But I am glad I read it and it made me pause and ponder.

It was a quick read for me. The book isn't very dense but is emotionally heavy. At the end of the day, it matters not whether we are accomplished or what we have accumulated, be it material things or in life, we all just want to live in health and love. I closed the book with a huge sigh.
