“The older I get the more selective I am about who is in my tribe. I would rather have four quarters thank one hundred pennies.”

Good morning and Happy Friday! This quote is so very true. If only we were able to realize it when we are younger it would create less stress. Have a peaceful day and weekend ahead! I wish you enough!

At an airport I overheard a father and daughter in their last moments together. They had announced her plane’s departure and standing near the door, he said to his daughter, “I love you, I wish you enough.”

She said, “Daddy, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Daddy.” They kissed good-bye and she left.

He walked over toward the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. 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?” “Yes, I have,” I replied.

Saying that brought back memories I had of expressing my love and appreciation for all my Dad had done for me. Recognizing that his days were limited, I took the time to tell him face to face how much he meant to me. So I knew what this man was experiencing.

“Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?” I asked.

“I am old and she lives much too far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is, her 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 generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” He paused for a moment and looking up as if trying to remember it in detail, he smiled even more.

“When we said ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with enough good things to sustain them,” he continued and 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. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Good-bye.”

He then began to sob and walked away.

“Life doesn’t allow for us to go back and fix what we have done wrong in the past but it does allow for us to live each day better than our last.”

Good morning and Happy Wednesday! The past is behind us and that is where we need to leave it! Move ahead and make each day the best day ever! Have a peaceful day and I wish you enough!

“I may not have everything I want in life but I am blessed enough to have all that I need . For this I am grateful.”

“Be a reflection of what you’d like to receive. If you want love, give love. If you want truth, be truthful. If you want respect, give respect. What you give out will return to you.”

Good morning and Happy Thankful Thursday! So if you give thanks, thanks will find its way back to you. Taking a few minutes out of your day to thank someone or just tell someone that you love them and appreciate them is priceless. Don’t leave the words unsaid. Reach out, make it known! Have a peaceful day and I wish you enough!
