This is beautiful and to all of you beautiful people - I WISH YOU ENOUGH!!! GOD BLESS

Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their
last moments together at the airport.
They had announced the departure.
Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the
mother said, "I love you and I wish you enough."
The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has
been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed.
I wish you enough, too, Mom".

They kissed and the daughter left. The mother
walked over to the window where I was seated.
Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry.
I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me
in by asking, "Did you ever say good-bye to someone
knowing it would be forever?".

Yes, I have," I replied. "Forgive me for asking,
but why is this a forever good-bye?".

"I am old and she lives so far away. I have
challenges ahead and the reality is - the next
trip back will be for my funeral," she said.

"When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say,
"I wish you enough'. May I ask what that means?".

She began to smile. "That's a wish that has been
handed down from other generations. My parents
used to say it to everyone". She paused a moment
and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail and
she smiled even more. "When we said , 'I wish you
enough', we were wanting the other person to have
a life filled with just enough good things to sustain
them". Then turning toward me, she shared the
following as if she were reciting it from memory.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude
bright no matter how gray the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit
alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest
of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the
final good-bye.

She then began to cry and walked away.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person,
an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them but then
an entire life to forget them.


To all my friends and loved ones,
