Abraham-Hicks Daily Quotes

(It is a real story as forwarded by unknown author to his friends. I was lucky enough to receive this in my mail box and thought of sharing this with everyone)

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.
