A story of love and courage
by Mary Worth
I loved a wonderful man years ago, before I met your father! ... When I was young and had a lot to learn. Whenever we disagreed, I wouldn't speak to him for weeks! ... I realized only later how LIFE CAN TURN ON A DIME! Life has many twists and turns. It's sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to predict what's going to happen! Back then, I didn't realize how lucky I was! ... I realized only later, after he was gone, that LOVE IS THE GREATEST GIFT we can ever be given! As imperfect as I was, I loved a great man... and I am a better person for it. I was in love, but I didn't fully know what that meant when I was young... After he was gone, I realized what a GIFT I was given.
What a story! Remarkable characters (including "A great man"), heart-wrenching character development (evolving from "I had a lot to learn" to "I am a better person for it."), and plot twists that "turn on dime!" It's one of the greatest stories of our time. Such a well constructed tale, but clearly way above my head; I couldn't understand a word of it.
