There are many people who would do anything to get just one chance to make amends for their past misgivings. Yet very few get this golden opportunity while the majority is saddled with that nostalgic remorse and regret. Even though Chick regrets so many things that he has done in the past, he gets the chance to reconnect with his mom and see life in a new perspective. I think that through this whole ordeal, he will finally have closure and will have said everything he never got to say after his mom's death.Being with his mother for this one day makes him realize the lack of time he spent with her and how out of touch he had been with her. Yet she had managed to retain that special place in his heart, and the near death experience is what sparked this encounter and brought them closer. I think this book teaches one to never take anything or anyone for granted, since life’s uncertainty is such that we may never get another chance to do the things we intend to do.
