The Perfect Day Summary
In the book “Tuesdays with Morrie”, by Mitch Alborn Morrie, the main character of the book depicts his perfect day as a day of relaxation and doing what he pleases. Specifically on Mitch’s thirteenth visit to see Morrie, he asks him what he would do on his perfect. Morrie describes a day full of simplistic events that seem meaningless, but are taken for granted on a daily basis in his life. He goes into great detail explaining the beauty of God’s creations and how they seem unimportant until they are taken away. One song that specifically sticks out in ones head when thinking about the perfect day is “Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw. This song embodies the mindset of Morrie and is similar in the ways teach person chooses to live put their perfect day in many different ways. The second song I chose for the description of Morrie’s last days is “Perfect Day” by Lady Antebellum. This song was chosen because of the way she expresses her feelings of what it would be like living the perfect day like it is your last. While reading the story, one may notice the two quotes that for some, sum up the way he feels while talking to Mitch about the last days of his life. All of the scriptures that were found I believe make this book come to life in the way scripture can be related to the mindset of Morrie. The characteristics that set him apart from most, people who are dying are how it is handled. Some choose to sulk in their last days and be upset that their death is coming soon, but as for Morrie, he chooses to enjoy his last moments with friends and family and take the precious time to reflect on great experiences from his past.
