We all receive those emails that sometimes just tug at your heart strings..and sometimes, depending on the mood, it just gets deleted or it gets forwarded to all those that matter..so today I am taking the time..
..sure I could have emailed it to a few friends and family but I felt it was worth sharing on my blog..….
you may have read it before..
They had announced the departure.
Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, 'I love
you, and I wish you enough.'
The daughter replied, 'Dad, our life together has been more than enough.
Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.'
I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, 'Did you
ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?'
'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,' he said.
'When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I
ask what that means?'
He began to smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed down from other
My parents used to say it to everyone...' He paused a moment and
looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more.
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,
he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.
I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
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
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.
He 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.
TAKE TIME TO LIVE....
To all my friends and loved ones, I WISH YOU ENOUGH.
