This is true with The Time Keeper.
Father Time exists. He was once a little boy who followed his curious mind and began measuring time. Every single time we say that we have no time, need more time or want time to fly - we need to remember that we are placed exactly in that moment to move the world forward.
The story is simple. Albom pieced together what all of us knew all along. Most people do not appreciate the time that they are given - some want more, some want less. With want, we are either looking back or looking ahead without looking around and realizing that what you have is plenty.
I liked the book. It wasn't a wake up call nor profound in its message.
