If you’ve read my previous posts, Judey and I went to MIBF – Manila’s International Book Fair. And we both agreed on 1 book. There it was on a separate stand, all in hardbound. Our eyes lit up. It’s a book. another best seller, I assume, or rather I hope. No, I know it will be since it is by Mitch Albom – The Timekeeper. If you’ve read all the other books that he has written, it is worth buying and definitely a must-read. Though he doesn’t write about passionate lovers and all the happy ending of other non platonic love affairs,
he writes stories that matter – stories that touches your heart – stories that will make you sink in to your bed and reflect on your own life. and that’s what good stories are
They challenge you.
They make you think.
They make you question things.
They change you.
And now that I’m re-reading One more day, I’ve decided to at least try to write down all the times my mom stood up for me – if it’s even remotely possible to put into black and white the ‘bottomless well of love’ mothers have for their children, just as how Chick Benetto puts it.
As I am typing this very word, my mom opened the door and reminded me to sleep early, kissed me and asked me how my day went. 🙂 🙂
P.S. I only noticed now that Albom wrote two books that I wasn’t aware of ; Fab Five and Bo. – I’ll try to look for it and read it. 🙂
