The Time Keeper - Cherish each moment ... a book with a powerful message

The Time KeeperThe Time Keeper by Mitch Albom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this book nearly a week ago and it is still lingering in my mind. What is time and why do we wish it away?

This is a story about Father Time and two people on earth who are wishing time away or wishing for more time. Father Time? Silly? No, Albom creates his character as the ancient human who first discovered how to mark time, starting with a stick in the sand. He becomes obsessed by time and ... well to tell you more would likely ruin the story for you.

Mitch Albom's books always have an enduring message. This one leaves you thinking about all the times in your life that you wished your life away (by this time next week I'll be finished with ...) instead of savoring all the time we have here on this earth, savor it as though each moment is your last.

It's a slim book with an important message.
