Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

 Enter my giveaway for Deep Blue Secret - ends November 1st.

This true story about the love between a spiritual mentor and his pupil has soared to the bestseller list for many reasons. For starters: it reminds us of the affection and gratitude that many of us still feel for the significant mentors of our past. It also plays out a fantasy many of us have entertained: what would it be like to look those people up again, tell them how much they meant to us, maybe even resume the mentorship? 

Plus, we meet Morrie Schwartz -- a one of a kind professor, whom the author describes as looking like a cross between a biblical prophet and Christmas elf. And finally we are privy to intimate moments of Morrie's final days as he lies dying from a terminal illness. Even on his deathbed, this twinkling-eyed mensch manages to teach us all about living robustly and fully. Kudos to author and acclaimed sports columnist Mitch Albom for telling this universally touching story with such grace and humility.~~synopsis from Goodreads

My thoughts about Tuesdays with Morrie ~~

I read this book some time ago for one of my book groups. It actually was the second time that I had read it. It is a very short book with some very big messages - some amazing life lessons. It really made me stop and think about what is really important and what I can and should just let go of. There was a movie made with Jack Lemon playing the part of Morrie. It is a great movie. So between the book or the movie, you should be able to learn the messages of Morrie. I highly recommend both!
