I Wish You Enough

My Dad sent me this today.  It was a forwarded email which I usually don’t read but I am glad that I did.  This is only a small excerpt but after reading the entire thing I was extremely emotional.  I knew that I would miss my family like crazy but I guess I tried to pretend that it would not be so difficult.  When, in reality, it kills me.  Especially lately, with everything that is going on with my Mom.  I know that I could never stay away from them for too long.  I want to experience the world and spread my wings but someday I will end up back in Arizona.  That’s where everyone I love is.  What is my life if I can’t be around those people?  They are my everything.

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.
