I wish you enough Recently, I overheard a Dad and Daughter in their last moments together at the airport. Boarding /Departure of flight just in the air. Standing proximity to the customary security gate, they hugged and the dad with tear filled eyes said, 'I love you, and I wish you enough.' The daughter softly responded, '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 beloved daughter marched ahead to board the flight. The dad ambled over to the window side, where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but then he welcomed me WITH OPEN ARMS by asking, 'Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?' 'Yes, I have,' I said. '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 for her 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 does it mean?' He began softly nodding his head and with a gentle smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed down from generation to other generations. My parents too used to say it from bottom of their heart to everyone..' He paused a moment and gazed upwards as if trying to retrieve it in detail, and then began telling casting a broad smile. '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 sob & 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 followers, mothers, madam sisters, daughters - I wish you Enough !
