Making Toast

I listened to the author of Making Toast on Fresh Air a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed the interview, so I picked up the book from the library.

It's sad. The author's adult daughter dies suddenly from a heart condition, so he and his wife move in with his son-in-law to help out with his three young children.

But I loved it. It's not a long read. It's sobering to think about one's own mortality, but the author's memories of his daughter are inspiring - she was compassionate, devoted to her family, and passionate about education. It reminded me that life is short, I should make the most of my time.

Which maybe explains my sporadic blogging. :)
