The title of the story is “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.

  1. “I wish you enough”. How appropriate. In today’s society, where everything is super sized, instant gratification……At some point we as a society seems to have forgotten to be thankful for the little things. Our health (when others struggle) our jobs (when others are out of work)family (when others are alone). I wish you enough……

    Wonderful story Mike….very much words of wisdom.

    The story of “I wish you enough” is a very warm and heart felt story. All of us can relate to the words in our own way. So many times we wish someone everything in life when enough is all that is needed. I sometimes stop and think of these words and realize that I am trying to reach for more than enough when enough is all I need and all I should ever reach for. When I realize this the feeling of overwhelm and stress is relieved and I can move on. Thank you Micheal for sharing the story and for reposting it again.
