I like the way the book is written in small chapters about good memories and accomplishments. Life goals, and struggles with the future for his family. Its just like snapshots into a human and it is wonderful. I get sick of Mitch Albom because I think he has realized that he can write inspiring bestsellers and they seem forced. Randy knew that he wasn't doing this for the money, he wanted a way to preserve himself for his children and I think he really succeeded.
I have appreciated reading this book because it makes me want to work harder at journaling and I have made an effort of that. I've been writing more on my blog about personal things and small stories of my day that I want to look back on and smile and laugh at.
I think that we can learn a lot from people who know that they are preparing to leave the Earth. They have a different perspective on living than anyone else and it can't be faked. Live life today. Enjoy the moment. Read books with your friends and share your feelings on them! Great choice Bekah.
