Just one more day would be....

You always hear about people who say that a book, a song, a person, a moment.... can change their life indefinitely.

I never agreed with this. How can someone else's thoughts and memories impact a viewer or reader?? How can you believe in something so much, that you gain a new perspective on life and love?

All of this pessimism left me, after reading Mitch Albom's book, 'For One More Day.' I read the entire book in two hours, during a delay at the airport. After I finished it, I was in a daze; I went and returned the book. (There was a special return policy at this store where you could read the book and return it for half price.)

Well... As I was sitting on the plane, just a few minutes later, I realized how much that book had affected me and I was mad at myself for returning it. Nothing I had ever read or watched had made me wonder about life so much.

For One More Day is the story of a mother and a son, and a relationship that covers a lifetime and beyond. It explores the question: What would you do if you could spend one more day with a lost loved one?

It is based on a story about former baseball player, Charles 'Chick' Benetto experiences.

You can choose to believe his story or not, but if you do choose to believe that 'For One More Day' is real, I promise you WILL gain a new perspective on life.

Give Hope a Chance.
