It's that part of your day where you"re relaxing in your .
worn-in recliner thinking about what you have to be grateful for today. Or maybe you"re in 5th period English class, the sunlight is tearing into the classroom distracting you and you start thinking about that very same thing. Are you grateful for laughter? Are you grateful for tears? Once you've asked yourself enough of these questions you start to see the big picture. The number one answer you realize you grateful for all of it. .
Okay, okay so maybe the synopsis above doesn't sound like the typical setting for most of us, but for Morrie Schwartz and Jamie Sullivan it was. Morrie and Jamie were grateful for life in its entirety, even as short as it was going to be for them. In Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom and A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks, both characters Morrie and Jamie are diagnosed with fatal diseases. The number one standing similarity between these two heart-wrenching stories was that Morrie and Jamie saw every component of the life they had, to be a blessing. "Morrie had always been a dancer but the music didn't matter. Rock and roll, big band, the blues. He loved them all." .
Morrie is an older retired college professor who is just absolutely positively brilliant. Jamie is a high school student who doesn't really fit in, but that doesn't matter to her. What matters to Jamie is helping others and being spiritual. Even though both characters are very far apart in age, I see a big similarity between their so- called.
"karma's." Morrie still has that young kid way about him when you look at him.
You can see he still hasn't entirely let go of his childhood. He still has that twinkle in his.
eye. That twinkle that you know occasionally still wishes he could dream of going on rocket ships to the moon. As for Jamie she is young, a teenager. But she is a very innocent teenager. She isn't exposed to any immoral or "bad" acts that typical teenagers occasionally involves themselves in.
