One More Day
UPDATE : I should rephrase the question. If you had one more day with a person that is no longer in your life (dead) who would it be?
I just finished reading Mitch Albums book For one More Day.
I loved it.
Just like his other books, it really hit home with me, took me deep.
It was such an easy read, I couldn't put the book down, and it got me thinking.
If I had one more day with someone, I'd choose to spend it with my grandma.
I would curl up in her lap and ask her to talk to me about nothing in particular. I want her soothing voice to fill my head and my heart. I want her to hold me like she always did, and I want to watch her bake. Her beautiful hands wrinkled with age working away at mounds of dough. She loved baking, and I was grandmas little helper.
I want to snuggle next to her in bed like I did so many times before and have her tell me a bedtime story, usually about Kuwait, the old days, and how things used to be.
If I had one more day with my granny id spend it telling her that I love her every Minuit of it, and I would thank her for everything she had ever done for everyone around. Id spend a good amount of it bragging too, telling her of all the things I had done and accomplished, making her so proud of me she'd burst!
I love you grandma.
What about you?
If you had one more day, who would you spend it with?
