    (I ran across this the other day...I know it's long, but worth reading)

    ~~~***~~~***~~~***~~~I Wish You Enough~~~***~~~***~~~***~~~

    Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their
    last moments together at the airport.
    They had announced the departure. Standing near the security gate,
    they hugged and the mother said, "I love you and I wish you enough".
    The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough.
    Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom".

    They kissed and the daughter left. The mother walked over to the window
    where I was seated. Standing there I could see she wanted and needed to cry.
    I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she 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,"she said.

    "When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough'.
    May I ask what that means?".
    She began to smile. "That's a wish that has been handed down
    from other generations.
    My parents used to say it to everyone".
    She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember
    it in detail and she 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, she shared the following as if she 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 you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

    She 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.'

    I'll go check out the crack slaw in your recipes. I should have thought to look there. Thank you so much! emoticon
