[12 Days of Christmas] #2: Mary, Did You Know Morrie?

On the 2nd day before Christmas, Hazy (and Weatherly) recommend:

BOOKTuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

Tuesdays_with_morrie_coverI love this book. It’s definitely one of my favorites. It’s a wonderful and touching story that makes us re-evaluate your priorities in life. It reminds us how precious and short life is, and how we shouldn’t take things & people we love for granted. We should learn how to slow down in our busy lives and take the time to appreciate how lucky we are to be alive and be surrounded by people who care about us. We should always try to love one another and make a positive difference in each other’s lives.

Quick Quotes

  • “So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” – Morrie
  • “This is part of what a family is about, not just love. It’s knowing that your family will be there watching out for you. Nothing else will give you that. Not money. Not fame. Not work.”
  • “The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.”
  • “Dying is only one thing to be sad over. Living unhappily is something else.”

SONG – “Mary, Did You Know?” by Pentatonix

Amazing. Just. Wow. The first time I listened to their version, it gave me goosebumps because of how beautifully they sung the lyrics.

Go on, please take a listen. 🙂
