      > I wish you enough!
      > Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments
      > together at the airport. 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.'
      > They kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to 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. '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,' 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 a moment and looked up as if trying to
      > remember it in detail, and he 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, 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 may appear.
      > 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 bigger.
      > 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.
      > Only if you wish send this to the people you will never forget.
      > If you don't send it to anyone it may mean that you are in such a
      > hurry that you have forgotten your friends.
      > TAKE TIME TO LIVE....
      > To all my friends and loved ones,
