Well, about a year ago or so he came to the library by my house and spoke. He told stories and was promoting his new book. He was one of the best speakers I have heard and I try to remember what he does when I do some of my speaking engagements...I also felt fortunate enough to get to meet him briefly afterwards and tell him what meaning his books have had in my life. I read Tuesdays with Morrie when I, myself, was 'dying' and it had significant meaning.
Anyways, his book is For One More Day. It is an quick but powerful read. It is about if you could spend one more day with someone you love, what would you do? He wrote it as a tribute to his mother who is still living.
Tonight, the TV movie will air on ABC. I am looking forward to watching it!
Air date: December 9 at 9/8c on ABC starring Michael Imperioli, Ellen Burstyn, Samantha Mathis and Scott Cohen .
Today, I am thankful for: another day to try to heal from this lingering flu/cold, a new red Treo cell phone to play with, the end of the semester within reach, being with friends and family, God and brief times when I have felt a little better
