Turn The Page..... tuesday

Tuesday is a great day to post about this book, because we are Tuesday people.

If you haven't read "Tuesdays with Morrie" by Mitch Albom, it is a must read. This book really puts life in perspective. You see life in a new light. It reminds us that material possessions are not important. The things that are important in life are our relationships with people, our family and our friends.

"An old man, a young man and life's greatest lesson."

"Have you ever really had a teacher? One who saw you as a raw but precious thing, a jewel that, with wisdom, could be polished to a proud shine? If you are lucky enough to find your way to such teachers, you will always find your way back. Sometimes it is only in your head. Sometimes it is right alongside their beds.

The last class of my old professor's life took place once a week, in his home, by a window in his study where he could watch a small hibiscus plant shed its pink flowers. The class met on Tuesdays. No books were required. The subject was the meaning of life. It was taught from experience.

The teaching goes on."

We have a good friend with ALS. He is in a wheel chair now and like Morrie has a very good attitude.
